scicoh intramural open:
Noobies, keep reading so you can find out what the CrossFit Open is all about.
Veterans, skip to the “What is the Intramural Open?” section to find out how we are running the intramural open this year!
WHAT IS THE CROSSFIT OPEN?
Each year, over 300,000 CrossFitters around the world participate in a global, online competition called The CrossFit Open.
For the elite, this is a way for them to advance on to the CrossFit Games in hopes of becoming the Fittest Man or Woman on Earth.
For mortals like us, it’s an amazing opportunity to push our own limits and be part of an amazing community that starts in our box, but extends to over 13,000 affiliates across the world!
Starting Thursday, February 16th, CrossFit Headquarters will release 1 workout each Thursday for 3 weeks. These workouts will test our fitness but include BOTH Rx and scaled versions so everyone can participate.
Each week we will program this workout to do in class and post our scores by the following Monday.
You can then see how your performance compares to other people in your division, state, country, and even the world. Regardless of how you stack up, it’s always a fun workout and great benchmark for next year!
It’s totally normal for new folks to feel intimidated and think it’s crazy to sign up for this thing. Sooooo, we created the Intramural Open!
WHAT IS THE INTRAMURAL OPEN?
At CrossFit SciCoh, we use the Intramural Open as the premier community event for our gym.
We use it to make memories, socialize with other members, and MAKE EVERYONE’S SCORE MATTER!
THE INTRAMURAL BASICS
We will split the gym into 3 teams. Each athlete will be RANDOMLY drafted to a team, with the exception of two athletes per team who will be drafted prior to the random name drawing. Athletes names will be drawn by division.
Each week teams accumulate points in a few ways:
- Simply submitting a score racks up 1 point per person for your team! (It doesn’t matter how “good” the score is)
- Placing top 3 in a division will earn a little extra.
- Even more points will be earned for your team by doing things like bringing the most spirit and doing simple weekly bonus point “challenges”.
- We also have some fun new bonus point opportunities coming this year.
Even if you aren’t a top athlete you can still score HUGE for your team!
In fact, the team that usually wins is the one that participates the most and brings the fun!
There are many more details to come…including the announcement of our theme for this year’s Intramural Open. Stay tuned!
