The Intramural Open 2015
The CrossFit Open is a worldwide CrossFit competition.
Our goals at NSCF Treehouse: to educate and inspire. Competition helps with the ‘inspire’ part: the pressure to perform pushes you to train harder; the social boost of dozens of your best friends cheering for you will help you reach a higher plane. Watching your teammates GO is inspiring.
Can we bring that worldwide thrill home? Can we deliver all the fun of competition without causing any anxiety attacks? We think so.
Through the Open, we’re going to have Two intramural teams competing. And you’re going to be on one of them.
The Two Intramural teams don’t have names or captains yet. We need 4 volunteer captains by end of day Monday. The first 4 to volunteer will be your captains!
We want you to sign up this year; are you really going to say no? I don’t think so.
Free to register!
Registration for the Open can be done at the gym using the spreadsheet on the back board. If you do the workout on Friday and Sunday you will automatically be on a team!
Coaches and members will be ‘drafted’ onto an Intramural team. We want to ensure even distribution for all of our athletes.
The Draft will occur 5:30pm at Friday Night Lights. Teams will be totally finalized by Monday morning.
Once the draft has occurred (names will be drawn from a hat) we will notify the athletes of their team.
+1 Point – Attendance: every member of a team that completes an Open workout at NSCF each week earns one point. Maximum one point per athlete per workout. This goes for Rx AND Scaled competitors!
+1 Point – Top 2: every male AND female member who places among the Top 2 at NSCF for each workout gets an extra point for their team. The top 2 SCALED athlete scores AND the top 2 RX athlete scores will count. (That is 4 points up for grabs)
+5 Points (team) – Spirit: The team with the most noise, pride, and PRESENCE each week will receive 5 bonus points. (We will have a neutral party present to judge this)
+8 Points (team) BONUS – Team Bonding: If your team gets together socially outside of the gym (ALL of you – pic posted on our FB page as proof)…you get points. This is a one time bonus. It can be done at any point during the 5 weeks.
In 2015, athletes competing in the Open will have only four days to complete each workout. The workouts are released on Thursday nights at 8pm and then we throw down all day on Friday, starting February 27th. ALL classes will be programmed for this workout. You can come morning, noon or night. Friday Night Lights, however, will be the BIG night for teams to gather and have a fun time together. This is where the Team Spirit points will be awarded. We will also have Open Gym on Sunday morning at 8am for those who cannot complete the workout on Friday or who want to redo the workout.
*Sunday morning 8am sign up sheet! You must sign up ahead of time!
The top team will earn a GRAND Trophy prize with everyones name on it.
Our focus is on FUN. We want participation because it will make you fitter, and it will get you high-fives and you’ll be happy and love life more and glow and stuff.
Register at the gym, and let’s start this party!
