Battle on the Yard 2.0!

We are excited to announce more details on our upcoming in-house team competition, the 2017 Battle on the Yard 2.0! This should be a fun day to compete and challenge yourself with, and against, your friends. It’s also a great way to prep for the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Open, starting in late February.

Here’s everything you need to know:

When:
Saturday, February 11 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

CrossFit 312

You and a partner (teams can be same gender or mixed, your choice! You just have to be in the same division RX or scaled.)

Why compete?
It’s a great way to challenge yourself and to have fun with your fellow 312 members!

How do I sign up?
We’ll have a whiteboard at the gym for team registration, or register online here.

Please register by Wednesday, February 1.

How do I know which division to sign-up for?
All skill and experience levels are welcome! The weights and movements below may not be a part of the competition, however, they can be used as a general guide to determine what division is best for you. These are working weights, not one rep maxes. (These are guidelines, not strict rules, so use your best judgement.)

RX:
Thruster (95/65)
Clean and Jerk (135/95)
Toes to Bar
Unassisted Kipping-Pull Ups
Deadlift (185/135)

Thruster (75/45)
Clean and Jerk (95/65)
V-Ups
Jumping Pull-Ups / Ring Rows
Deadlift (135/95)

What if I don’t have a team but still want to participate?
We’ll have a Free Agent sign-up section on the whiteboard and online. Sign up, and the CF 312 staff will help you pull together a team.

What should I plan for on the day of the event?
Plan on arriving early on that Saturday. Athlete briefing will start promptly at 8 a.m. and events will follow immediately after. Bring plenty of snacks and fluids.

Should our team have a name and make t-shirts?
Yes! Coordinating your outfits, fun team names and other friendly gamesmanship is strongly encouraged.

What if I don’t want to compete but want to judge or volunteer?
We’d love to have you help! Please email info@crossfit312.com for more information.
