What is all this fuss about?
The CrossFit Games Open has returned and with it the Second City CrossFit Intramural Open. The Intramural Open is designed to get everybody involved and keep the spirit high over the course of the 5 week Open.
Just like in previous years, for five weeks there will be two versions of the same workout released for anyone to complete and see how they stack up not only within their gym, but worldwide against all other competing CrossFitters.
How will it work?
Three teams have been formed within the walls of SCCF. Each is captained by two members. These members have been on a recruiting drive over the past few weeks and have signed up 30 members (at the time of writing) to each of their teams.
Each and every team member is valuable as they can all earn points towards the team total regardless of their score on the actual Open workout.
As a bonus, every team member will have the opportunity to buy a limited edition SCCF shirt from here before the deadline on February 11th.
For 2018, your SCCF teams are:
Team Aromas - captained by Sophie and Ash
Team Madison - captained by Danni and Matt
Team Carson - captained by Zuber and Gaby
How do you earn points?
Team members will then participate in the CrossFit Open workouts each week and have an opportunity to earn points for their Intramural Open team in a number of ways. They are as follows:
1 (+1) Each team member that completes an Open WOD with a judge and has their score validated online will earn a point for their team’s total. RX workouts and scaled workouts score the same.
2 (+1) The top three male and female RX scores for each week will earn an additional point for their team total.
3 (+5) The team that is deemed to have shown the most spirit during each Friday Night Lights will earn 5 bonus points.
4 (+1) Any team member completing an Open WOD during Friday Night Lights will earn an extra point for their team.
5 (+2/+1) Athletes who challenge an athlete from another team to compete in a head-to-head throw down during Friday Night Lights will earn their team an extra 2 points for a win, whilst 1 extra point will be earned for a loss. All head-to-head match ups must be submitted to Mike via the team captains by Friday 1530.
6 (+1) Hitting a PB during any of the Open workouts will earn an extra point for their team.
7 (+1) Judging a member of a different team during an Open workout.
