WHAT IS THE CROSSFIT OPEN?
The CrossFit Open is a worldwide CrossFit competition.
[Lear More HERE]
Our goals at KURA: to educate and inspire. Competition helps with the ‘inspire’ part: the pressure to perform pushes you to train harder; the social boost of dozens of your training partners cheering for you will help you reach a higher plane. Heck, watching your teammates GO is inspiring.
Can we bring that worldwide thrill home? Can we deliver all the fun of competition without causing any anxiety attacks? We think so!
Through the CrossFit Open, we’re going to have four intramural teams competing. And you’re going to be on one of them.
The Four Intramural team captains for 2017 are:
The Mathletes Led by Nou Sapone
The Progressive Warriors Led by Jigar Asar
I'm Not A Player I Just Squat A Lot Led by Dustin Markowski
Vicious and Victorious Led by Hannah Kam
…a GREAT group!
Our sign ups will happen between now and Monday night! Then the Captains are free to start recruiting you.
IF they try to recruit you before then, they’ll get a penalty...
Yep, we chose the FUN bunch to captain. We want you to sign up this year; are you really going to say no? I don’t think so.
Registration for the Open tournament can be done at the gym using the spreadsheet. The $50 registration fee will include your entry fee, teams shirt, last week's Saturday party and winning teams prize.
Members will be ‘drafted’ onto an Intramural team. We want to ensure even distribution for all of our athletes.
Once the draft has occurred (names will be drawn from a hat) we will notify the athletes of their team.
+1 Point – Attendance: every member of a team that completes an Open workout at KURA each week earns one point. Maximum one point per athlete per workout. This goes for Rx AND Scaled competitors!
+1 Point – Top 3: every male AND female member who places among the top 3 at KURA for each workout gets an extra point for their team. The top 3 SCALED athlete scores AND the top 3 RX athlete scores will count.
+5 Points (team) – Spirit: The team with the most noise, pride, and PRESENCE each week will receive 5 bonus points.
+8 Points (team) BONUS – Team Bonding: If your team gets together socially outside of the gym (ALL of you – pic posted on our FB page as proof)…you get points. This is a one-time bonus. It can be done at any point during the 5 weeks.
In 2017, The Open will have five workouts; we have a BONUS tournament planned, which may take place at any time DURING the five weeks or up until a week after the last.
The workouts are released on Thursday nights at 8 pm and then we throw down all day on Friday, starting February 27th. ALL workouts are voluntary for those, not participating. The first workout will be announced Thursday, February 23rd.
The top team will earn a GRAND prize. Details released soon!
Our focus is on FUN. We want participation because it will make you fitter, and it will get you high-fives and you’ll be happy and love life more and glow and stuff.
Register at the gym, and let’s start this party!
