Open Intramural 2018
ARE….YOU…..READY! It’s time to get ready for CrossFit St. Charles Annual Open Intramural Competition! This is our 3rd year and we are doubling down our efforts to go bigger and better this year! Check out the updated format of the intramural!
For the seasoned vet, you already know what the CrossFit Open is, but here is the down low for the CrossFit newcomer. Each year the journey to the CrossFit Games begins with the CrossFit Open. The Open is a worldwide competition that every gym across the globe participates in. The competition lasts for 5 weeks and each week, a workout is announced on Thursday and you have from Thursday to Monday to complete the workout and enter your scores. It is a freaking blast and we do it every year!
Competition drastically helps with inspiration. 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.
We will have 2 Intramural teams competing against each other and YOU will be on one!
We will have:
AM Class Teams (5:30am, 8:00am, 9:00am, 11:30am)
PM Class Teams (5:00pm, 6:00pm, 7:00pm)
Each class will have a Captain represenative who will be your team leaders! These Captains will be recruiting you to be a part of either the AM or PM teams once we announce who they are. Then the fun happens. Team names/ t-shirts/ and planning are all about being included and having fun!
To participate, all you have to do is sign up for the Open (click here) and select CrossFit St. Charles as your affiliate. You don’t have to be on a team in order to sign up for the open, you can sign up and then be recruited.

- 1 point is awarded for every member of the team who participates in an Open workout.

Registration for the Open can be done at games.crossfit.com. Choose CrossFit St. Charles as your affiliate. The price to register is $20.00
The captains will hold a draft of coaches. Once this is completed, these captains will be coming for you to recruit you on their team! (It will be soon!)
The Open goes from February 23th to March 27th.
Workouts will be done at our weekly Friday Night Lights Throwdown we will hold! However, that weeks event will be Friday’s workout for the gym, so even if you can’t make it to the Throwdown, you can still participate and get points to your team. You can contact a certified judge (they will be known during the open) and set up a time to complete the workout during the weekend open gym hours as well. Look for upcoming Friday WODs that will prepare you for these kind of workouts!
Alrighty guys, are you in?! Go sign up for the Open! A captain will snag you up in no time!
