Introducing the 2016 CrossFit TT Main Event Series
For the last three years, we’ve challenged ourselves to devise a way to make the CrossFit Open – an event that historically fostered a sense of community, camaraderie, and achievement – into an event that engages our ENTIRE community. After a lot of hard work with our tremendous coaching staff and our partners at Factory Forged, we’re proud to present you all with our solution.
Welcome to the CrossFit TT 2016 Main Event.
About the Event. The wonderful thing about the open is that it gives individuals the opportunity to test what their truly capable of, and to see how much progress they’ve made since starting their fitness journey. The Main Event Series takes things a step further. In the Main Event Series, an individual’s score for a particular Open workout becomes much more than a number on a Global leaderboard; It becomes a contribution to the achievements of a team that’s comprised of your fellow community members. Because the event is structured in such a fashion as to enable everyone to make a significant contribution, individuals make valuable contributions to their team even when that week’s workout does speak to their strengths.
What it is. The 2016 CrossFit TT MainEvent Series is a 5 week long competition that provides everyone – from the recent On-Ramp Graduate, to the seasoned CrossFit competitor – with the opportunity to participate in a fun, meaningful fitness challenge. The Main Event series is similar to the CrossFit Open, in that participants will still perform CrossFit Open Workouts 16.1 – 16.5 at CrossFit TT, in a special environment with their friends, peers and coaches. Should participants elect to do so, they will still log their scores on-line just as they’ve done in year’s past. Unlike years past, an individuals score for a particular workout will mean more than their individual score on the Global CrossFit Open leaderboard – a LOT more. Because individuals participating in the Main Event will also be part of a team, their score stands to help improve their team’s standings against other similarly assembled teams within the CrossFit TT ranks. Individuals will also have the opportunity to contribute to their team’s score in additional ways beyond posting a high score for their respective division. Throughout the 5 week long competition, Teams can earn points through participation in the workouts, participating in each week’s lifestyle challenge, or even through showcasing their team spirit during each Saturday’s workout.
How it Works. Upon registering, athletes will be assigned a team. Each team will be assigned a coach; each team will nominate it’s own Captain. Athletes must choose whether they’d like to participate in the Rx or Scaled Division. Rx competitors will perform the CrossFit Open workout revealed the Thursday prior to each Main Event Session. Scaled competitors will perform a scaled variant of the CrossFit Open workout revealed the Thursday prior to each Main Event Session. Participants do not need to register for the Open in order to participate in Saturday Main Event unless they desire to log their scores on the Global CrossFit Open Leaderboard – registration for Saturday Main Event DOES NOT include registration to the CrossFit Open. CFTT recommends that all athletes who plan to participate in the Rx division also register for the CrossFit Open.
Divisions. Athletes will be ranked according to the following divisions:
· Rx Male / Female
· Scaled Male Female
· Masters (40+) Male / Female
· Veteran (50+) Male / Female
· Teen (13-18) Male / Female
Workouts. Each Saturday, athletes from all teams will face off against each other in the Main Event. CFTT will run heats of the CrossFit Open workout, both Scaled and Rx. Teams will be assigned points based on Place, Attendance, and Team Spirit.
Scoring. Scoring will be assigned as follows:
· Top 5 Athletes / Division: 5 – 1 Points;
· Attendance: Each athlete in attendance earns 1 point;
· Team Spirit: Each week, one team will be assigned the Team Spirit Award;
· Lifestyle: .5 points / Team Member
Lifestyle Challenge. Each week, all athletes will be assigned a lifestyle challenge. One week, you might be challenged to spend 10 minutes each day on mobilization; another, you might be challenged to get 10 hours of sleep each night. Any athletes who complete the challenge for the week will receive .5 points.
