What is the CrossFit Open?
The Open is the first stage of the CrossFit Games season and the largest community event of the year. Each year, hundreds of thousands of CrossFit athletes, like each and every one of you, come together to participate in a worldwide, online competition. It is 5 weeks of FUN that will run from Feb 22-Mar 26 and is comprised of one new WOD released per week that must be completed.
18.1 - Feb 22-26
18.2 - March 1-5
18.3 - March 8-12
18.4 - March 15-19
18.5 - March 22-26
At BICF, we encourage EVERYONE to participate. We will host a high energy, family friendly event on each of the Friday nights @6:30pm and it will also be the workout of the day. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain!
Anyone aged 14 or older can compete and there are various age divisions. Registration is open from Thursday, January 11 - February 26, and all you need to do is sign up at Games.CrossFit.com ($20), select Bainbridge Island CrossFit as your affiliate, and join the #BIslandstrong team.
You will complete the specified workouts each week and log your scores (we'll show you how). Workouts will be released Thursdays at 5pm PT, and you have four days to complete the workout for the week and submit your score. Scores are due before 5pm PT the following Monday. You will enter them and we will approve them. Workouts will be completed at BICF with a judge. If you cannot attend, you can complete your workouts at any CrossFit affiliate in the world. The Open offers two versions of each workout, scaled and Rx'd. The scaled option makes the event all inclusive and all athletes can compare their results to others worldwide, regionally, by age, or within the gym.
At the end of the 5 weeks, the fittest move onto the next stages of competition: the Regionals and the Online qualifiers for teens and masters. At BICF we will also be hosting an intramural team competition to make this event even more fun! At the beginning of February we will announce team captains and randomly draft teams. Stay tuned for more details and be prepared to accomplish amazing things!
