Intramural Open Rules
The Intramural Open is back in 2019! This year we are doing 3 teams, one for each gym (Uptown, Downtown, and Midcity)
The CrossFit Open starts on February 21st and goes through March 25th! It is five weeks and five workouts of camaraderie, fun, and challenging workouts!
The Intramural Open is our way of making the CrossFit Open Games season more fun and brings our community closer together! We are going to continue to build on the season we had last year. We can’t wait to see the 2019 teams compete in a fun, challenging five-week tournament!

Your team will compete against the other teams and will be awarded points for the following accomplishments based on a proportional scoring system system:
% Attendance - 100 points - every member of a team that completes an Open workout, and enters a valid score for that week. This goes for Rx AND Scaled competitors! (If your team has 20 members, and 15 complete the workout, your team gets 75 points)
PR’s: Did you PR in your workout? If yes, you earn points! We will release the PR performance goals each week depending on the workout
Performance: Top 3 Man or Woman in the overall CrossFit NOLA Leaderboard Rx and Scaled versions of the workout. Categories are Male Rx, Female Rx, Male Scaled, and Female Scaled
