CrossFit Open 2017

The CrossFit Open registration is here! This is our Fourth year participating and we are so excited. Go to http://games.crossfit.com/, click on REGISTER, and make sure to join our affiliate CrossFit Fig and our team CrossFit Fig.  We will be doing the open wods on Friday evenings during an event called Friday Night Lights, which will be just like having an in-house competition. If you cannot attend our Friday Night Lights event, you can do the wod anytime during classes (Saturday or Monday) before the deadline, as long as there is a judge available. Once you have your final score, you will post it on the online leaderboard. You have until Monday at 7 pm CST to submit your scores. Heat assignments for the Friday Night Lights event will be created on Thursday evenings after the workout is announced. We will post heat assignments on our private Facebook Page and on the glass warm up board at CF Fig.

Friday Night Lights IV:

This year we will be drafting teams of 8 to 10 athletes (this will vary based on the amount of open registrations we will have). The draft will be done through a hopper, and everyone’s names including coaches will be placed inside the hopper. The draft will be at CrossFit Fig on Friday, February 17th at 6 pm and it will be also broadcast live on Facebook. Once teams are formed, we will post a roster at Fig so everyone is aware of who is on their teams, the team can assign a captain and share contact information (with everyone’s consent) so you can plan your team spirit fun.

Each week we will announce team total points and rankings, and the Wednesday after 17.5 we will announce the overall winning team. Each team member of the overall winning team will win a $25 Rogue gift card.

  • 1 points per athlete that attends to the “Friday Night Lights” Event.
