Polarize CrossFit's First Annual

Intramural Open Team Competition

It’s that time of the year again PCF’ers where we put our fitness to the test with the CrossFit Open.We are doing it big this year with our First Annual PCF Intramural Open.

If you are new, I am sure you are wondering what does an Intramural Open mean? Internally we are going to be doing the 5 CrossFit Open workouts along with the whole CrossFit world. However the twist is each person who is committed to the Intramural Open will be on a team. Each team will have a captain and there will be points awarded each week.

 

Draft Day-

Draft Party – Friday Feb 12

We will be kicking off the Intramural Open with a good ol fashion PCF Party. It will be at the gym. Captains, Competitor Athletes and Coaches will be randomly selected out of a hat to keep teams fair Each Team will be randomly assigned a Color, That will be your Team Color and Name – Your team is welcome to add a “tag line” to your Name.

Here you will find out what team you are on and meet fellow team members who you don’t already know. You will be given a color badge to wear on your arm the night of the Draft.

Party Friday Feb 12 @ 7pm Potluck & BYOB

PCF will BBQ Burgers and Dogs (paleo of course)

Workout Days

Signup For a heat –

You will sign up for your heat each week in WodTogether. Heats will be 45 minutes.

You will need to arrive on time for your heat. If you arrive late, you may need to wait until there is an opening in another heat.

Friday Night Lights 5:30-8:30pm

Come in dressed in your team colors and show your team pride (this is very important when it comes to your team score)

Note* For this in-house competition, the main emphasis of points will be on participation- not performance! So if you’re worried about “not being ready” – don’t be! All that’s required is that you show up, do work, and cheer on your teammates! As you’ll see in the rules below, only the top 3 males and females in each division (RX and Scaled) will score additional points for their team! Our goal is to make this a fun experience for everyone, bring our community together while testing our hard work that we put in each week!
