2020 is different to all the years that have gone before because The CrossFit Games Open has moved from its traditional home of spring to autumn. This means that although there was the 2019 Open in February and March of this year, next week the 2020 Open starts!
Within SCCF, the Intramural Open is designed to get everybody involved and keep the spirit high over the course of the 5 week Open.
For full details and dates, please head over to games.crossfit.com where you can sign up to the worldwide leaderboard and join the Second City CrossFit affiliate team #SCCFstrong
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.
The first Friday Night Lights event will be October 11th.
The timetable will be slightly adjusted to make this work with Open workout slots being set up each Friday morning with SC30 classes remaining in place.
How will it work?
Three teams have been formed within the walls of SCCF. Each is captained by two members. These members will be on a recruiting drive as soon as you read this! If you’re looking for a team to join then grab one of the people shown below and see if they have space in their cap!
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.
For 2020, your SCCF team captains are:
Team Carson - Cam and Charlotte
Team Madison - Rory and Liz
Team Aromas - Ry and Ema
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 from a different team will earn a point for their team’s total. RX workouts and scaled workouts score the same.
2 (+5) The team that is deemed to have shown the most spirit during each Friday Night Lights will earn 5 bonus points.
3 (+1) Any team member completing an Open WOD during Friday Night Lights will earn an extra point for their team.
4 (+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.
5 (+1) Hitting a PB during any of the Open workouts will earn an extra point for their team.
6 (+?) Discretionary bonus points can be awarded at any time by members of staff for anything that is super special.
7 (+1) Judging a member of a different team during an Open workout.
