On February 22, 2012, the Crossfit Games Open – the first stage of the Crossfit Games – will begin and San Francisco Crossfit will again be a qualified affiliate. Just like last year, this is your opportunity to compete in the Games and see how you fare against the projected 100,000 other competitors worldwide. The Open will be five workouts over a 5-week period, with a workout being published each Wednesday, beginning February 22nd. Competitors have until the following Wednesday to complete the workout, submit their score, and have it validated.
If you plan to compete in the Open at SFCF, you will need to complete a 2-step registration process:
(1) Register Here at the Crossfit Games website on or after February 1st and identify SFCF as your affiliate AND,
(2) Email firstname.lastname@example.org at SFCF to let us know you plan to compete this year.
The cost to register on the Games website is $10 and the cost to compete this year at SFCF will be $50 ($10/workout).
Here’s how it will work at SFCF:
We will be doing the Open WODs on FRIDAY NIGHTS from 6-8 or 5-8 depending on how many athletes register
Each time you compete, you’ll also need to judge another athlete.
We will be scheduling the heats in advance this year so you will know when you are judging and when you are working out – you will be expected to come early, warm up, and be ready to go at your scheduled heat time.
If you are out-of-town or can’t make one of the Friday workouts, we will help you figure out another time to complete the workout.
We will validate your score.
If you want to do the Open workouts but you don’t want to be a part of this Games scene, we’ll also be running the workout as our Saturday 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. group class workout but that will not be a judged/validated workout.
We plan to have a post-WOD potluck on Friday nights and a movie night after the last WOD in March.
We had a lot of competitors last year and we hope a lot of you will join the fun this year!
