The Intramural Open || Fall 2019
2019 is the year of the NEW CrossFit Competition format! Out with the old, in with the new and the new that WE are focusing on is the very first FALL Open.
The 2019 Fall CrossFit Open is actually the first step of the 2020 season and begins on October 10. We’re already taking some steps to help get you ready. We’ll be offering weekly skills classes, working past Open WODs into the programming, doing some extra PT sessions… all in hopes of preparing for the next Open. If you’ve been with us for more than a year, you may have caught the Spring 2018 Open with us which was our first year doing it Intramural Style! Well, we’re bringing it back!
More details will come soon with specifics on registration and teams, but for now we just wanted to get the word out because when the time comes, we’re going to have to act fast!
Open to all CFA members of all skill levels.
The Intramural Open experience is a team format take on the CrossFit Games Open. All participants will be placed into a draft and then drafted into different teams managed by your Team Captains.
Points will be earned by things like:
Participating in the Open Workouts
Top performance in the Open Workouts
And more… To be determined, but will be established before we begin!
Starting on October 10, one workout will be released from CFHQ each week for 5 weeks on Thursday evenings. We will program the workouts as part of the normally scheduled programming on Fridays AND we will have an additional schedule that will be the BIG time for teams to gather and have a fun time together. Special make ups outside of the classes/events may be requested and addressed on a case-by-base basis. The Intramural Open experience will wrap up with the final WOD announced on November 7th and we’ll have our big wrap party!
The workouts will be run at the gym as part of the normal class sessions and during a special events schedule. If you are traveling during this time period, you may also find an affiliate to complete the standard workouts with to earn your participation points.
Because it’s fun and we believe it’ll make you better in more ways that just improving your health and fitness. Cheering each on other on in this environment gives you an experience that you can’t find anywhere else. The Open is a great way to test to see where your current potential is. I encourage everyone to participate because it’s the path that’s going to allow you to pursue your most positive potential and be able to connect with other fellow CFA family members.
For those that want to submit scores via the CFHQ Open, please feel free to do so, make sure you have a judge for your workout, and we will validate your scores via the CFHQ system accordingly. Please note, it is NOT a requirement that you sign up through HQ in order to participate with us. Signing up through HQ will allow you to see how you rank with the rest of the world, but we don’t require it for IMO.

REGISTRATION DEADLINE – Friday, September 20th – This allows our team shirts to be ready by go time!
Again, you DO NOT have to register through CFHQ to register for the intramural open. You ONLY need to register with HQ if you want to submit your scores worldwide.

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.
Please don’t hesitate to ask questions or if you have any reservations about any unique challenges, I’m positive we can work it out.
