The 2013 CrossFit Games season is upon us as CrossFit HQ has announced the start of the 2013 CrossFit Open on March 6, 2013!
CrossFit Rockland will again be one of the registered CrossFit Affiliates to host all 5 weeks of the CrossFit Open which run from March 6 to April 7. We will be doing things very similar to last year with a few changes along the way. So here is the deal….
We want everyone to participate, but understand that formal competition is not everyone’s thing, so to accommodate everyone, the 9AM class will be used to offer scaled versions of the CF Open WOD or allow athletes to do the CF Open WOD in a non-competition environment (basically those not registered to compete in the Open).
For all REGISTERED CrossFit Open Competitors heats will run during the 10AM & 11AM classes or until everyone has finished. To help us stay organized, we will still use MBO (our class sign-up system) to have everyone sign-up for which class they will attend and heats will be assigned accordingly. Based on the number of folks registered to compete with CrossFit Rockland for the Open, we might add an additional 12PM session on Saturday or a Friday night session.
Of course, we want EVERYONE to join in the fun! So whether your registered to compete or not, all are welcome at CFR during the Open! So come on down and show your support for the athletes!
If you would like to COMPETE in the 2013 CrossFit Open, Registration OPENS ON JANUARY 30, 2013! Registration can be completed via the CrossFit Games website, but we will also have a link available through our events section once it goes live.
We will be looking for volunteers and judges to help us with each weekend. If interested, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
