CrossFit Squamish Does The Open…. With In House Teams!!!

  Blog   0   

We are one week away from the start of the open and we have an exciting announcement to make!  For the 5 weeks of the CrossFit Games Open (register here!!) we will have 3 giant in house teams comprised each of 2 team leaders (coaches) and 1/3 of our registered athletes.  During the 5 Open workouts individuals will be eligible to collect points for their team.  The full list of categories is still under construction but will include things such as:

* Getting a PR in a workout

* Wearing your team colour to the workout

* Most unique/inappropriate attire for the wod

* Weekly judges choice award (for most enjoyable to judge)

* Doing the judges course

* Wearing your work uniform (including footwear) for the wod

* Biggest improvement from last year

* Doing a happy dance after the wod

* Highest male and female placing each week

* Lowest male and female placing each week

* Showing up to the Friday night event

* Most family numbers in attendance each week

* Judging another athlete the same evening you are competing

* First muscle up inside the wod

* Best social media post of your weekly Open wod

etc…. etc….

All team members including team leaders have the ability to contribute to their team’s points!!!! The more people sign up (come on people it’s only $20… US eep) the more fun it will be.  You can do the weekly workouts in either the Rx or scaled version and make your decision each week depending on the wod.  You really can’t go wrong.  Once you have visited the Games site to register add your name to our Affiliate Team list (there is no possible way for you to hinder our team even if you are brand new and worried about your scores!).  So far it looks like this:
