What is the CF30518 Open Throwdown?
We piggy back the CrossFit Open and have our own internal competition based on the same workouts. This will give you a chance to have some fun competing without having to register for the Open. To ensure that this fun is inclusive to everyone we will have 3 divisions: beginner, scaled and RX.
How does it work?
We will have 3 teams consisting beginner, scaled and RX athletes. Each team will have a captain and a “party” captain. We will be awarding points to teams each week based on participation, spirit, grit, determination, etc. We will have extra ways to earn more points for your team throughout the week too. The teams will be competing against each other so let’s make this as fun as possible!
Entering the CF30518 Throwdown:
$25 gets you the following:
- A CF30518 open Throwdown t-shirt/tank
- Winning team picture displayed in the gym
- A chance to podium in your gender division
- A chance to be named CrossFitter of the Open
- Your best chance to PR’ing your workouts! Everyone is cheering for you!
- Camaraderie like you’ve never experienced before!!!
- And we’ll have a potluck cookout at the end of the open. Date TBD
Once everyone is registered, we’ll let you know what team you’re on.
Performing the Wods:
Wod will be performed on Saturdays starting at 9:30am. We will run through an explanation of the wod and all movement standards. We’ll go in several different in heats so that everyone can be judged.
