This year, we will be running an “Intramural Open competition” to make things even more FUN. What was once an intimidating event is no more.
The CrossFit Open is an annual worldwide CrossFit competition. We participate every year at CrossFit Salus. It’s a lot of fun. And best of all, with the new scaled division, anyone can do it. Last year, almost 40 Salus members participated- read last year’s shout outs for a bit of inspiration.
This year, we decided to take it up a notch.
Intramural Open at CrossFit Salus
The Intramural Open at CrossFit Salus will focus on inclusion and celebration… not just competition (though there’s a good bit of that, too).
Our first step was to select three Team Captains. These three Captains are fun, supportive, positive and are huge parts of our Salus community. They work hard, have great attitudes and are ready to help us keep things interesting!
So, without further ado, your 2018 Intramural Open Team Captains & Team Names are:
Intramural Open Team Captains
- Scott Brownfeld, Team Captain of “The Wod Squad” (Blue)
- Sue Mulvaney, Team Captain of the “Flexy Beasts” (Red)
- Alicia Zink, Team Captain of “2 Fit 2 Quit” (Green)
Draft for the Intramural Open
We have already met with the team captains. All coaches and athletes who were registered for the CrossFit Games Open before that date were automatically put into a Draft pool and selected onto their teams. They will be in contact with you ASAP so you know whose team you are on.
And now, your three Captains have the freedom to recruit the remainder of the box…and guess what? They’ll be asking YOU!
Intramural Open Shirts
Order your team shirts online now and be sure to choose your team color. Please note, to get the shirts in time for the first workout, we have to close the order February 6.
Shirts are not mandatory, just part of the fun. Get your team name on the back, your name or whatever your heart desires! 🙂
Points and Scoring System for the Intramural Open
The Intramural Open at CrossFit Salus is designed to encourage participation and, you guessed it, fun. Scoring reflects those goals:
+1 Point – Attendance
Every member of the team that completes an Open workout at CrossFit Salus each week (or submits their video and score to games.crossfit.com if traveling) earns one point for their team. Maximum one point per athlete per workout. This is applied for Rx AND Scaled competitors!
+1 Point – Top 3 At the Box
Every male AND female member who places among the Top 3 at CrossFit Salus for each workout (Rx only) gets a bonus point for their team.
+3 Points – Hardest Worker
Each week we will choose one athlete who we believe worked the hardest in that week’s Open workout. This athlete can be Rx or scaled will earn their team 3 extra points.
+5 Points – Spirit of the Open
Each week we will identify one athlete who displays overflowing SPIRIT during that week’s workouts. You’ll notice this person always cheering others on, volunteering to judge others, helping people get prepared, doing something amazing they never thought possible, etc. This person can be Rx or scaled and will earn their team 5 extra points.
