Rx: This is for the highly competitive athletes. Those who are both strong, and skilled in gymnastics movements. Signing up for Rx means you're ready to be tested at a high level no matter what is thrown at you! 

Intermediate: This division is for those who have been CrossFitting enough to have a decent skill set, but cannot quite Rx every workout. You may lack some high end gymnastic skills or elite strength, but you can push yourself in workouts and enjoy a competitive environment. Experienced competitors should choose Rx if they are in doubt of which division to do. The intermediate division is meant for athletes looking to move from the scaled/beginner division, but not quite there yet.

Beginner: As a beginner athlete, you are newer to CrossFit and competing. These events will be doable by anyone who has been CrossFitting for at least a few months, and no high level skills will be required. That doesn't mean the workouts will be easy though! Ideally, only those new to competing will choose the beginner division. If you've done beginner before, try intermediate!

Cash prizes for Rx winners (TBA), product prizes from our sponsors will be given to all podium finishers.

Rx and Intermediate divisions will do 3 events, Beginner division will do 2. (pre-event WOD may be added to establish heats and lanes. Floater WOD may also be added on top of listed events. Be sure to follow our facebook event page!)
