2016 CrossFit Games Open

Are you ready?!

Ladies and gentlemen of Badger CrossFit,

The 2016 competition season is quickly approaching and at our facility we set some standards that you need to be aware of before we begin the fun. And there is no better time to see what CrossFit community is all about than each Saturday for 5 weeks, starting, February 27th!

Here are details, and there are more to come as we get more info:

  • The first workout (16.1) will be done on Saturday, February 27th at 9am. We will not have any group classes this day except the FUNCTION class at 7am and Weightlifting
  • Any one of you can do the workouts on Saturdays, but priority will be given to those that have signed up for the Open HERE. Ask Tyler/Adam/Sara if you have questions.
  • There is a scaled division, teen division, RX division, and masters division. There is no excuse this year to not compete and have fun!
  • We will have opportunities for those that cannot compete with the gym on Saturdays. Fridays and some Sundays if necessary.

Team/Individual Competitors Information:

  1. Anyone who is a member at BCF can register and compete in the 2016 OPEN. Please go to http://games.crossfit.com/ and follow the links that say “REGISTER HERE” Log in/sign up.
  2. As a member of our gym, your scores will need to be validated by a judge at our gym and submitted through the games.crossfit.com website. If you intend to compete at Regionals, a registered judge will need to judge you and you must video all your performances.
  3. You will need to register for our gym/team, which will be labeled as “Badger CrossFit” when you sign up.

We need your help with the following:

  • We need judges that are willing to get certified from CrossFit HQ. Click HERE for more info about the certified judging process and then let Tyler or Adam know you completed this with your online cert sent to [email protected]. Once you complete this, we will give you a free 2016 Games Open t-shirt! Deadline for this is Feb 12th to get the free shirt.
  • We need volunteers to assist us with setting up, taking down, logistical help, judging, etc.
  • Only those who are interested in making Regionals need a certified judge. Otherwise you and your fellow athlete can judge eachother, the rest of the gym, etc. You must be a registered Open athlete to judge someone.
  • We want and need your family, friends, loved ones, etc. to show up, cheer you on and share in your amazing feats! Please spread the word and bring them! This is a community event.
