2018 Crossfit Games Open Season

Have you signed up for the open!  Test your skills and challenge yourself this year. They have several divisons and even a scaled division.

18.2- March 1-5

18.3- March 8-12

18.4- March 15-19

18.5- March 22-26

Registration for the Open begins Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018.

The Open is the first stage of the CrossFit Games season and the largest community event of the year. Every year, hundreds of thousands of athletes come together to compete in the worldwide, online competition.

Anyone aged 14 or older can compete. All you have to do is sign up at Games.CrossFit.com and log your score each week. Workouts are released on Thursdays at 5 p.m. PT, and athletes have four days to complete the workout for the week and submit their score. Scores are due before 5 p.m. PT the following Monday. Complete the workouts at a CrossFit affiliate with a judge, or film your effort from anywhere in the world and submit a link as proof.

The Open offers two versions of each workout, scaled and Rx’d. The scaled option makes the event all-inclusive. All athletes can compare their results to others worldwide, regionally, by age or within their own gyms. An official CrossFit Games app will be available in late January, which will focus on your own personal performance in the Open.

At the end of five weeks, the fittest move on to the next stages of competition: the Regionals and the Online Qualifier.

Friday Night Lights @crossfitspringfield

While we are on the subject of the Crossfit Games “OPEN”. Be sure to sign up and then join the CFS community in completing the OPEN workout for that week.  Every Friday night during the OPEN season, CFS will be hosting a Friday Night Lights to create a competitive community and support for those athletes competing in the open. Whether your a high level or scaled athlete, sign up, compete and have fun.
