416 League 2020
416 League is an in-house members-only competition that runs inline with the CrossFit Games “Open”. It’s our way to way to amp up the fun during the Open and encourage camaraderie and gym spirit of our CF416 family.
WHAT IS THE “OPEN”?
“The 2019 Reebok CrossFit Games Open is the largest fitness competition on Earth and an exciting showcase of the CrossFit community. Here, athletes like you, from all around the world, show up weekly and push themselves further than they ever thought possible over a five-week period. Challenges, PRs and the unknown await.” (www.crossfit.com)
This year, we will not require our members to register for the CrossFit Open online. Instead, members will be registering for the 416 League and joining a team to share the excitement each week when a weekly WOD is release. We have assigned four Team Captains (Zeynep, Jed, Amie, and Andrew) who will need to recruit their teams – and that’s where YOU come in to play! Be prepared for Captains and Team Members to ask you to join their team. Hold out for the best offer!
Don’t forget, the Open is not just for “competitors!” The Open is just another workout, and we want to use it as a chance to celebrate all of the awesome people in our gym and our unique culture.
CF416 will host 5 Events during the CrossFit Games Open on various days of the weekend. We will host 2 Friday Night Lights (FNL) during Week 2 and 5. We will have a maximum of 50 people participate. Sign-up will be open 48 hours before. Aside from that you can be tested during any Friday class, during any Open Gym time, or one of the other events we will host throughout the open.
Your job on your team is to complete the WOD (Rx or Scaled)!
As team members complete the Open WOD for the week, each member will be required to submit their own scores. Team points will be tallied based on the criteria outlined below.
+1 Point – Attendance: every member of a team that completes an Open workout at CrossFit 416 each week earns one point. Maximum one point per athlete per workout. This goes for Rx AND Scaled competitors!
+1 Point – Top 3: every male AND female member who places among the Top 3 at 416 for each workout (Rx and Scaled) gets an extra point for their team.
+5 Points (team) – Spirit: The team with the most noise, pride, and PRESENCE each week will receive 5 bonus points.
To sign-up for #416League, members can register online via Wodify starting September 18th. Each team captain will have a specific Wodify link to join their team. Once you’ve registered, stop by the front desk to get your photo taken! If you don’t know which team to join, we will put your name on a list and have the team captains contact you!
The fee is $25 + tax per participant.
We’ll have some random draws each week for prizes, including gear, supplements, and training packages. The top team will also earn a GRAND prize. Details released soon!Our focus is on FUN. We want participation because it will make you fitter, happier and healthier!
