17 Feb RCFM Intramural Open
This year RCFM will be doing an intramural Open! What is that? Glad you asked, check out the details below and sign up by Wednesday night to be added to a team!
What is the CF Open?
First you need to know what the CrossFit Open is. The Open is comprised of five workouts over five weeks, and it starts with workout “19.1” this year. Open workouts are identified by their year and the order in which they appear. The workouts will be released every Thursday at 8pm EST at games.crossfit.com.
How to Sign Up for the Intramural?
In order to participate in the Open you DO NOT need to register on the Games website, but you DO need to register on our event page HERE. Please note if you do want to compare your scores with friends or family around the world, you can register for the Open and also participate in our intramural Open as well!
While the purpose of the Open is to find the fittest athletes that will end up participating at the CrossFit Gams, it’s also an opportunity for any athlete at any level to participate in an atmosphere like none other throughout the year. It can add meaning and purpose to your training while also bringing our gym’s community closer together. The Open is the time of year where we see many people achieve important firsts: bodyweight snatch, muscle-ups, toes-to-bars, handstand push-ups, double-unders, etc. It is truly a fun and energetic time of year and we want to live it up to the fullest!
What is the RCFM intramural Open?
On living the energy to the fullest, this year we will be having our first ever intramural competition! The intramural Open is a team in-house Open comprised of RCFM members only! Teams will be drafted by coaches and be led by that coach throughout the 5 weeks of the Open. Teams will compete for points during each workout.
How does scoring work?
- Teams are given 2 point for every athlete who completes a given Open workout.
- Teams are given 3 points for every athlete who finishes among the top 3 women or top 3 men in the gym per workout.
- Teams are given 5 points if they win the “Spirit of the Open”* award on any given week.
* “Spirit of the Open” award is an award that acknowledges not only what a member accomplishes but how they accomplish it. It can be given for anyone who inspired, motivated or entertained that week with not only their performance but also, presence, attitude, attire and overall sportsmanship.
