So the CrossFit Games Open Registration started yesterday! This is huge! This marks the beginning of the CrossFit season. In a short couple of weeks we will officially begin five weeks of Open competition! The top 20 men and 20 women in each region will continue on to the CrossFit Regionals Competition.
Over the course of five weeks, CF Head Quarters will release 1 workout a week. We will find out what the WOD is on Thursday evenings, as a gym we will complete the WODs on Friday evenings, and have until Monday to input our scores into the online database. This is a real competition, which means that every athlete will have an assigned judge, reps will need to be to standard, and we will all follow the prescribed weights and movement standards provided to us by CFHQ. There is both a scaled and RXed division this year which is a huge change to the competition format.
The Open provides every athlete an awesome opportunity to be push themselves and truly test their limits!
If you are interested in becoming a registered Judge, the Judging exam can be found here. This exam needs to be taken by anyone who would like to judge for an athlete who is hoping to qualify for regionals or anyone who intends to volunteer as a judge at regionals or the Games!
If you are interested in participating in the Open please mark your calendars for Saturday, February 7. We will plan to have a group meeting after the team WOD to discuss what the Open looks like, how we run it here at Connex, talk about any changes we will be making this year, and answer any other questions folks may have about what this Open season will look like!
This is an exciting time to be a CFer!!! Lets get it Connex!
