The Open is upon us! We hope that you are excited as we are for this exciting community event. If you haven’t already registered, we highly suggest that you do! Whether you are brand new to our gym or you’re an experienced athlete hoping to advance to the next stage, the Open is a fun and exciting way to challenge your fitness and test your abilities and we would love to have you register with us. You can do so at games.crossfit.com.
With that being said, here is how we will be running things at NSCF this year…
Each Thursday at 5pm, there will be a live video announcement made by CrossFit of the workout and standards, immediately followed by well-known Games athletes performing the workout for the very first time. We will be displaying this live announcement via BoxHub at 5pm for the 5 weeks of this event. Resultantly, the class schedule on Thursday evenings will change to on-the-hour slots at 3pm, 4pm, and 6pm.
Although you have until each following Monday to submit your scores online by 5pm, we as a gym will be programming each Open workout as the class WOD for Friday. Friday’s class schedule will be as usual.
There will be an additional opportunity to perform your Open workout between the hours of 10am and noon every Saturday following the announcement. Saturday classes will be limited to 8am and 9am ONLY for the 5 weeks of the Open in order to provide this opportunity. We welcome you to invite family, friends, and coworkers to the Saturday event to watch you throw down! We will be setting up heats and hope that this will provide a fun and competitive event for our gym. Although we will have some judges available, we would love to have some of you volunteer to help out in this respect.
Any athlete planning to submit their scores online must have a judge count and validate their reps. You will be responsible to arrange someone to judge you if planning to . Ideally, find someone who attends your regular class and is also registered for the Open, that way you can take turns and judge each other.
Your judge does not need to be an officially certified judge, unless you expect that you may potentially qualify for Regionals as an individual athlete. Your coach will review the movement standards prior to the beginning of each class. Judges are responsible to enforce proper movement standards and report scores accurately.
Score sheets will be provided by Northstate CrossFit. Be sure that the gym’s copy of your results are returned to the class trainer and/or designated place of return. You are then responsible to submit your scores online by Monday at 5pm, after which we will validate your scores. If you forget to enter your scores, we cannot help you!!
