  • Top 3 scores from each event contribute to our team ranking
  • There can be different athletes for each event and anyone who is registered with our affiliate
  • We benefit from having as many athletes competing in events as we can, as if excel at 1 event, this score can help our team
  • For a team member’s workout to count toward the team’s total, they must still be “in the running” as an individual. This means that they have completed all previous Open workouts as prescribed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION :

Should I still compete if I don’t think I have shot at qualifying for Regionals or the Games?

Yes!  You should compete whether or not you think you have a shot at making it to the Games. The Open is for all of the CrossFit community, not just the people who may make it to the Games. You get a chance to compete in the same workouts as CrossFitters all over the world, and track yourself in worldwide standings–If you want to see how your training’s going and join a community wide event, it doesn’t get much better. The workouts are not going to feature outrageous programming, but rather be achievable for most practicing CrossFitters.
