Scaled events will be held on Saturday, October 21. Rx and Masters events will be held Sunday, October 22.

Specific times will be posted closer to the event.

Teams

All teams must be composed of 3 males and 3 females. Divisions:

  • Rx
  • Scaled
  • Masters*

In the event that an athlete changes gyms (which were both eligible for the competition) athletes must be active members of the registered gym from July 21, 2017 to the date of the event. This need not apply for athletes who moved from a non-eligible gym into an eligible gym. Team eligibility requirements must be met per CrossFit Games Rulebook Sections 1.12, 1.13, 1.14, 1.15. The "more than half" rule applies beginning July 21st.

If gym owners are to compete, they are expected to do so with their own gym.

* Athletes from multiple gyms may compose Masters teams.

Rx Team: Athlete Standards

All members of team display competency in basic CF movements at standard prescribed loading and reps.

Females are NOT REQUIRED to be able to perform Muscle Ups in the Rx division, even if Muscle Ups are in the workout. Do not let muscle ups prevent your team from signing up in the Rx division. Scoring and WODs will be designed to reward competency in such movements but those who cannot will still be able to compete!

The following should be considered working weights for multiple reps and not a 1-rep max:

  • Snatch: 135/95
  • Clean and Jerk: 185/125
  • Kipping Pullups: Proficient
  • Toes to bar: Proficient
  • Double Unders: Proficient

Teams should have multiple athletes who can perform high skill movements (i.e. muscle-ups)

***Be advised: These loads and skills are recommendations. Triangle Invitational reserves the right to change or program heavier if desired. The above is by no means an all-inclusive list of movements one may see at the competition but is meant to serve as a guideline for the caliber of fitness that will be tested. Athletes who possess broad, general, and inclusive fitness will be rewarded.

Scaled Team: Athlete Standards

Not all members of the team display competency in basic CF movements at standard prescribed loading and reps. It is acceptable to have multiple athletes that fit the "Rx" competency level compete as members of a scaled team.

There is no "minimum movement requirement" for the Scaled division. That is, if a particular athlete cannot perform a movement, a suitable scale will be used for that athlete, and the scoring will reflect the scale used.

Scaled teams who made the podium in any past year may not submit any team with more than 3 athletes from the podium placing team.

Masters Team

Masters teams will all have the option to complete each event using Scaled movement standards. Some events may have movements which can be scaled further than the Scaled "standard". All members of each Masters team must be at least 40 years of age by October 21, 2017.

Members are NOT REQUIRED to be able to perform Muscle Ups in the Masters division, even if Muscle Ups are in the workout. Do not let muscle ups prevent your team from signing up in the Masters division. Scoring and WODs will be designed to reward competency in such movements but those who cannot will still be able to compete!

Each gym may send unlimited teams for any division. For more information refer to the Registration page.

Structure

Teams should expect 3-5 workouts over the course of 1 day. The first WOD will be released one week before the event, including video demos when appropriate, along with movement standards. At least 1 workout will be reserved for release on the day of competition.

All team members will receive a competition t-shirt and prizes will be award to the top three teams in the Rx and Scaled divisions. Prizes for the Masters division will be awarded to the top team, or the top three if five or more Masters teams register.
