Open Season

The 2011 CrossFit Games season will begin on March 15th as the first event of the 2011 CrossFit Games Open is announced. The Open is a six-week-long competition open to anyone in the world. There will be one workout per week, and athletes must submit a validated performance, either by uploading a video of the workout or by performing it at a Registered Affiliate. Everyone will be ranked instantly with everyone else in their region and with everyone else in the world.

The new website is set to go live soon, and will have all the rules, regulations, and registration options in full detail. The cost will be $10 in the US and Canada, $5 in the rest of the world. The Open will also screen the top athletes and teams for Regional Qualifiers, and Masters athletes directly for the Games. All aspiring Regional and Games competitors must register on the Open Website no later than March 20th at 17:00 PDT. Each week athletes from around the world will complete the same workout, and submit their validated times or video proof to the Open Website. The best athletes and teams will progress.

CrossFit Fenway, CrossFit Southie, and CrossFit New England will be taking turns hosting The Open events for the 6 weeks. The workouts will be held at 1 PM on Saturdays starting on March 19th.  We are expecting to have over 100 athletes competing every weekend, and your affiliate must submit an athlete roster the Tuesday before the event.  Scaling will not be allowed.  Certified Level 1 athletes will be asked to judge as well as compete.  If you are a Level 1 Coach but don’t plan on competing we could use your help judging, as well as the assistance of any other willing volunteers to keep each event running as smoothly as possible.  Please e-mail Eric if you need further information about competing, judging, or volunteering.
