Intramural Open

CrossFit NBS will be participating in the CrossFit Open and we want all of our CrossFit members involved! In order to provide inclusiveness, we will run an “Intramural Open”, an idea adopted from Catalyst Fitness.

The Intramural Open is a fantastic way to build our community during the CrossFit Open. The focus of the Intramural Open is on inclusion and celebration instead of competition (though there’s a good bit of that, too.)

How It Works

Any CrossFit member interested in participating in the Open and being on a team will sign up. From there we will choose captains. Our goal is to have enough participants to have 3 teams so we will be choosing 3 captains.

Participants will then be selected for the teams.  Once everyone is placed on a team we will announce all of the teams and their members!

Each Team will then decide on a team name.

You are more than welcome to register on the official CrossFit Games site so that you can see how you do against the masses, however, we will have a $20 buy in for the entry fee to participate in our Intramural Open. This money will go into a ‘pot’ and be divided among the members of the winning team!! The more people we have signed up, the bigger the payout!!

Points and Scoring

Points are awarded to encourage participation and FUN and some friendly competition.

1. Teams are given 1 point for every athlete who completes an Open workout.

2. Teams are given 3 points for every athlete who finishes among the top 3 Rx women and top 3 RX men in the gym per workout.

3. Teams are given 3 points for every athlete who finishes among the top 3 Scaled women and top 3 Scaled men in the gym per workout.

4. Individuals are given 1 point daily for having the most spirit in your regular class! Spirit points will then be tallied for weekly team totals.


The Open workouts will be during all regularly-scheduled classes on Fridays. Athletes can attend any class and their scores go toward points for their Intramural team. Friday evenings we will get as many people in the building at once as possible to participate in our Open. We will try to have 1-2 members of each Intramural team represented in each heat on the Open workouts. I know scheduling can be challenging at times, so we will also have a “last-chance qualifier” on Sunday afternoons during an Open Gym time for athletes who can’t make any class on Friday or those crazy enough to attempt the workouts twice!

The goal is to have fun!! It DOES NOT matter if you’ve been CrossFitting for one month or 4 years, everyone can participate and have a great time!!
