CFQV Intramural OPEN
The OPEN is upon us. The CrossFit Games OPEN is where we put our fitness to the test. A 5 week competition to test fitness. Every Thursday night CrossFit HQ releases a workout to be completed by the next Monday. You will complete the workout, post your score online, and see where you stack up against friends, family, gym mates, and the world.
At CFQV we are doing things a little differently. We will be competing at the worldwide level, but we will also keep our competition “in house”, Intramural Style!
Within our gym we will do the Open workouts and each person competing will be on an intramural team. Each team will have a captain and there will be points awarded each week.
Note* For the Intramural Open, the main emphasis of points will be on participation; to show up, compete, and have fun – not performance! So if you’re worried about “not being ready” – don’t be! As you’ll see in the rules below, only the top 3 males and females in each division (RX and Scaled) will score additional points for their team!
Our goal is to make this a fun experience for everyone and bring our community together to testing our hard work that we put in each week!
Every Thursday will we host a CrossFit Open watching party at 7 PM to watch the fittest in the world complete the same workout as you!
Registration is now open at games.crossfit.com. Once registered, let your coach know and your Intramural season will begin. Cost of registering for the Open is $20 which you pay online on the CrossFit website.
Getting on a team
As soon as you register, your coach will inform the team captains you are ready to roll! Then the recruitment begins!
You guys are athletes and are available to your team’s success. Much like a high school student being recruited colleges.
Open Saturday’s will be our big event days for the #CFQVOpen. We’ll be at the box starting at 9 AM to warm up and get ready for the WOD. We’ll have a warm up and mobility prep work on the board. We’ll also have some strategy tips for you as well.
Team Spirit! Have fun! Come with your teammates, represent your team with team colors, and invite friends & family as your own cheering section! We will run heats of the WOD starting around 9:30 or so until we’re done. After that we’ll have a #CFQVFamily meal for some fuel and community time.

If you cannot make the Saturday Open WoD, you can have an opportunity to complete it on Monday.
