The 2020 Affiliate Cup!
Another year of the Open with a few new changes at BCF! We have MANY new faces and it’s going to be an amazing event that EVERYONE can partake in.
How it works
If you’re unfamiliar with the CrossFit Open, it’s CrossFit’s largest annual online competition with over 275,000 people registered from around the world in 2015 and the 1st stepping stone to The CrossFit Games, the ultimate test of fitness. Workouts are released each Thursday night for 5 weeks. Read more about The Open. For most of us, the Open is a time to see how we’ve improved our fitness in the past year and push outside our comfort zones. Our community comes together and forms an amazing bond during this time. This year, we go back to our usual Saturday morning team battle as we compete in our version, The Badger CrossFit Affiliate Cup.
The Badger CrossFit Affiliate Cup
For five consecutive weeks on SATURDAY MORNINGS, we host The Open at BCF in a team competition format. The event kicks off at 8AM on Saturdays and athletes will represent one of four teams. The teams will earn points for participating in a variety of activities. This will replace Saturday morning classes during these 5 weeks.
What are you competing for? The Badger CrossFit Affiliate Cup Trophy, announcement and a private event for the winning team when the weather turns!
Who can Participate
ANYONE with ANY experience level (1 week to 10+ years) who wishes to have fun with this event. A link to register is below. On one of the nights prior to the open, our team captains will get together and draft athletes to their teams. Then we will announce teams at the conclusion of that evening and this is where the fun begins. Teams will form private Facebook groups and begin planning their team t-shirts, spirit ideas and other fun stuff.

Mindful Eating Challenge (During the Cup!)
Prepping for The Open / Don’t be Nervous
Every year, athletes get nervous or are uncertain about participating in The Open. Don’t be. The Open is an amazing experience and we have been preparing for this for the entire year, but definitely focusing on it the last few months (if you haven’t noticed). If you end up not being able to do a movement, there is a scaled division that you can participate it each week at your choosing. Or choose Coach Tyler’s version of fun “Open” workouts.
If you are unable to make the Saturday workout and still want to participate in that weeks event, you’ll need to make it up. We will be doing the Open WODs for the class workout on Fridays all day.
You must have a judge from the Open to validate your performance if you are officially registered with The CrossFit Games.
Our community features some amazing athletes and we have local businesses who we want to help connect with them. If you’re interested in partnering with us during the Open, please take a look at our sponsorship packet by emailing [email protected]
We look forward to another great year, and appreciate you all considering this. If you want to step outside your comfort zone, have fun, get fit, and meet awesome people, you’re in the right place.
