The CrossFit Open is a worldwide CrossFit competition. We do it every year. It’s fun.
Last year, many Torva family members tried their hand at this CrossFit “competition” for the first time and had a blast!
Our goals at Torva: 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. Heck, 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.
You’ll be entering your score to CrossFit as an individual, but through the Open, we’re going to have intramural teams competing. And you’re going to be on one of them.
The Intramural Captains (we chose some fun ones!) will chose one coach for their team before the Draft.
Registration for the Open can be done at games.crossfit.com, and choose CrossFit Torva as your Affiliate.
Everyone registered for the Open before the Draft will be ‘drafted’ onto an Intramural team.
Following that draft, every other athlete registered for the Open will be a free agent and be courted by one of our Team Captains to join their team.
+1 Point – Attendance: every member of a team that completes an Open workout at Torva and summits score to Games.CrossFit.Com each week earns one point. Maximum one point per athlete per workout. This goes for Rx AND Scaled competitors!
+3 Points – Top 3: every male AND female member who places among the Top 3 at Torva overall gets three points for their team.
+5 Points (team) – Spirit: The team with the most noise, pride, and PRESENCE each week will receive 5 bonus points.
In 2019, athletes competing in the Open will have only four days to complete each workout. Our Friday Night Lights event will be each Friday night during the Open (This is where you win spirit points!). The Open will have five workouts but Torva has a special sixth week event each year.
As usual, you can be tested at other times as long as you make arrangements with a coach. Friday Night Lights and other test days will count towards your membership attendance.
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 online at the CrossFit Games site, and let’s start this party!
