Division Descriptions

There are a ton of DIVISIONS.  Other than pricing above, the information to the right is correct for current registration prices.

$4,000 to top ELITE level Male and Female, $2,000 to top RX 2 Male/2 Female Team.  No other cash prizes at this time (unless we can get some more sponsors, or if registration takes off).

  1. Elite Male/Female – not scared of anything, if we ask you to do a circus trick, you’ll do it, though our facebook post has us thinking no circus tricks this year.
  2. RX Male/Female – you do the WOD’s RX in your box, but you look a little hesitantly at the Games Programming, not scared, but you wonder… I might not look that good when comparing my max CJ, or those bar muscle ups.
  3. Masters Male/Female RX- The 40-44 year old group will be right behind the RX in their requirements.  Yeah, we expect you could do Chest to Bar Pull-ups, and muscle ups.  By the time we get to the Masters RX 60+ group, we will be thinking pull-ups, but most everything will have scaling.  This is for a 60 year old who can move loads comparable to scaled weights, but doesn’t have all the skills… contrary to the original post, no double unders in this group!
  4. Masters Male/Female Scaled –  Basically take the scaled level of competition, and scale it down further.  Less load, less reps perhaps, and less skill.  Catch all for ANYONE from 40 years and up who are scaled.
  5. Scaled Male/Female – Typical scaled athlete.  You can CrossFit, oh yes you can, but the pull-ups might be tough, chest to bar are a stretch for sure.  You might be strong, but you might not, so we’ll make sure you are comfy regardless.  If you step up on a box, yeah, sure, no prob.
  6. Beginner Male/Female – You have been in CrossFit 6 months or less typically, or a couple years, but it has been a long road to get where you are, and most movements and weights pose problems.  We’ll take care of ya!
  7. Youth All Ages – following the guidelines of CrossFit HQ on the programming.  This will be FUN!  Just like last year, you’ll have a volunteer that will be your CRUISE DIRECTOR taking you from WOD to WOD, and making sure you are loving the day (Saturday Only).
  8. Teen All Ages – We expect you can do work, sometimes incredible amounts of it.  If you RX all the WOD’s in your box, and hang with the top dogs, then go RX.  But if you do them RX minus loads, and you aren’t quite able to keep up at the top of the heap, then the Teen group is for you.  The younger teens will NOT max out, or test that arena.  But you’ll be called to show us you can do work.  Skills will not be tested in younger teens, but older teens could be double undering, and pistoling like the RX.
  9. RX Teams – 2 Men/2 Women – You want to go to the Games one day.  Perhaps its a stretch, but you know it would be awesome.  You are here to compete.  You know we aren’t going to throw crazy stuff at ya, but you also know we are going to test your ability to do work, as well as work as a team.
  10. RX 4 Men – we just added this due to demand.  This is our second level of RX Competition, meaning – bigger prizes to the mixed team, smaller prizes to this group.
  11. OPEN Teams – from 4 women, to 0 women (this is how our registration page lists it, so if you are 4 guys, you pick the 0 women option) – This is pure fun!  You will be tested, but there will be scaling so any beginner COULD jump on a team.  Just don’t put 4 together, or you might not finish anything.  But expect a great time in this division!  You will only be competing for medals in this division, 1st, 2nd, 3rd in each division separately, so if you are 0 women, you only compete against 0 women… same for every other division along the way.

ELITE – This will be the highest level, thus the greatest prizes.

RX, Beginner, Scaled and RX Team (2 Guys and 2 Girls ONLY for RX), OPEN Teams of 4 (4 girls, 3 girls, 2 girls, 1 girl, 0 girls) – in OPEN you are competing against your division only.  The most populated divisions will be all one gender or equal mix (historically). Additional Divisions now open: Youth 7-9, 10-12; Teen 13-14, 15-17; Masters 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60+

WOD Set-up

Three WOD Areas inside and one outside  (Youth and Teen have a separate inside WOD area) – 3 WOD’s guaranteed for all divisions.

Teams – RX = Mixed Gender 2/2 or 4 men, OPEN = scaled/RX competitors.  Scaled competitors will be fine, but having RX quality competitors could be an advantage in weights (accomplishing total load in WOD’s with different weight options) and in skills (reduce reps by doing chin over bar pull-ups, etc).  When registering, you will pick your team based on the number of total women on your team.

0 Girls, 1 Girl, 2 Girls, 3 Girls, 4 Girls… which would mean you would have 4 men, 3 men, etc to 0 men.
