Registering for the 2017 Open:
- Navigate yourself over to http://games.crossfit.com/
- Scroll down to where it says “REGISTER” in red, then click it.
- If you signed up for the 2015 or 2016 CrossFit Open, you already have a login. So there is no need to create one. Just go ahead and sign in with that information. If you did not sign up last year, you will need to go ahead and create a login.
- Once you login, either with you already established login or with your newly created one, they will ask you for some information, then have you sign the liability waiver. Then they will ask for payment; the cost for the Open is $20.
- After the payment is submitted, you will be brought to a screen that will ask you to designate your affiliate, please select CrossFit 808. Do not worry about the "team" portion, you can leave that blank, unless you plan on putting up scores for our CrossFit 808 Plan B team in the Open.
- Judges Course: we highly recommend that all participants in the Open complete the Judges Course. It is very helpful for the athlete to understand what a judge is looking/asking for when competing in the Open. It will also help your fellow athletes out when you are able to judge them in the class ("I do for you, you do for me"). Please go to the following link to take the official Judges Course: https://oc.crossfit.com/course?id=12. Upon completion, email the certificate to Coach Elyse (email@example.com).
Just like in the past, workouts will be announced on Thursdays, which means we will be doing the "Open Workout" of the week on Fridays. The 6:00am, 8:30am, and noon classes will have the "Open Workout" programmed as their workout of the day (WOD), if you are a registered athlete needing validation, you must sign-up for a class/time every week.
In the afternoon/evening we will hold our "Friday Night Lights" event with the first heat beginning promptly at 5:30pm. The box will open at 5:00pm for athletes to come in and warm-up/mobilize. Heat schedule will be posted Thursday evening, so don't forget to sign-up on the MINDBODY schedule by Thursday at 5:00PM.
If you wish to do the workout a second time, there will be an opportunity to re-do the workout on "Second Chance Sundays" at 10:00am. You must find street parking for this event as New Hope holds their Sunday services in the morning.
All scores must be submitted by Monday at 5pm (Pacific Time) for the respective week. Be aware that DST occurs on Sunday, March 12th, which will bump our time difference to 3 hours from Pacific Time.
If you still have questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We love hosting the Open at 808 and enjoy watching everyone challenge themselves. REMEMBER TO ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE and FULL EFFORT IS ALWAYS FULL VICTORY! Oh, and don't forget to thank your coaches and judge throughout the 5 weeks. They put a ton of time and effort into making sure the Open runs smoothly for everyone.
