Notice, the blog title has the word "participate" in it. Whether you have decided to prove your fitness (Rx, Scaled, a combo of the two, or Masters) with the other athletes around the world by officially registering at  games.crossfit.com or not, we highly encourage, suggest, and pressure you to join our intramural team competition.

What exactly is the Intramural Open? Your captains will be a pair of coaches. The official draft will begin at 8pm Monday 2/19.  Watch our instastory as it goes down. On Tuesday 2/20 you'll find out which team you're on and who your captain are.  At the end of the 5 weeks, with 18.5 being our final event, the team with the most points will be declared 2018 MO2DT Intramural Champs.  Check out how you can earn points for your team here. There is also a very special award, The Spirit of the Open,  that will go to the person that demonstrates the true essence of the Open. Someone who is excited to complete the workouts, whether that week's workout is something challenging or in his or her wheelhouse, participates in the events, cheers and celebrates others accomplishments, shows up on time, is motivating, encouraging, and supportive of others and there's a smile on his or her face.  Each will the coaching staff will cast their ballot for The Spirit of the Open

Remember, this isn't about your score on the 5 workouts, if you do the workout, you will earn points for your team. If you dive into the community and get involved in the weekly events, you'll earn a lot of point for your team and you'll have the best time doing it.

You have until 7:30pm Monday to sign up to be on an intramural team, if you are not at the box Monday, please email Jess to get yourself signed up.
