Announcing the 2011 CrossFit Games Open.

Formally referred to as the CrossFit Games Sectionals the CrossFit Games Open will be a six-week qualifying competition that will begin Tuesday, March 15th at 17:00 PDT. This competition is the first step in qualifying for the 2011 CrossFit Games. Each week, one event will be announced each Tuesday, and everyone has until the following Sunday at 17:00 PDT to complete the event and record their scores.

There are two ways to compete:

1. Compete at a Registered Affiliate: Attend a workout session at a registered affiliate and submit your score for the affiliate to validate. 

2. Compete Anywhere: Perform the workout as prescribed anywhere you can or want, and videotape it. Submit your score and upload your video.

CrossFit is developing a comprehensive website to handle the technical requirements of the worldwide Open. That website will go live the week before the competition. It will have robust registration, scoring, and reporting capabilities. If you're an affiliate, you will have the opportunity to Opt-In each week. There will be a few criteria that you must abide by, but generally you will have a lot of freedom over how and when you host the competition.

CrossFit Verve will be Opting in each week to host the workouts, bring the community together and create that competative atmosphere that brings out the best in all of us.  If you want to compete on the team challenge this year you will be required by CrossFit to compete in the open as an individual.

Complete details are coming soon!

Until then, MBS CrossFit has invited any and all Verve athletes to a friendly workout this Saturday at 11am in their neck of the woods.  So if you are planning on competing, head on over with some friends to MBS this Saturday and enjoy a little friendly competition.


  1. Matt :

    I’ll be competing every Saturday at Verve (when not at the fire station). I hope that all of you join me.
    Much love!

  2. DH :

    Greetings from San Jose, Ca!
    I just wanted to say thank you for precisely blocked out and simple recipes here on your site. I really enjoyed your videos from the mainsite as well. I’m looking forward to more in the future.
    Hope you all do well on your Paleo challenge!

  3. Dan W :

    I’m in for this Saturday. I take it we don’t need to register with MBS??? Anyway, I can take 3 peeps with me for some carpool action if anyone wants a ride. If so, 10am take off from Verve.

  4. Ali Nichols :

    Yeah for carpools!! Count me in:)

  5. robyn :

    Boo 🙁 I have a basketball tournament that I have to coach on Saturday, so sad I can’t go.

  6. Sarah Lev :

    I am so in!!! Let’s show them who is boss!

  7. Jeff "CueBall" :

    This WOD punch-a-sized my face for free the last round with 10 wallballs & 20 PUs left. I was at 13:30 to this point and then fought for every rep after while trying to figure out how to breath…
    17:01 sub’d 20kg KB
    Stupid white board deceived me again….

  8. Rich :

    Thanks Jeff – I was already fearing this WOD…

  9. 16:00 flat. 16kg KB, mod’d the pull-up with a red band due to the higher number of reps (in the interest of speed) and used the lame-o red 10# wall balls with no label (no likey) but did well and did it faster.
    Cherie’s plan to get me moving more quickly instead of getting hung up on lifting heavier or RX’d every time is working! I felt successful today.

  10. Cherie :

    13:36 Rx very tired today ready for my day off and can’t wait for the day I can link 25 and 20 wallballs and pull-ups

  11. Andy :

    10:17 Rx. Fun WOD!

  12. Matt :

    8:05(?) on todays WOD. Goal was unbroken everything, but that didn’t pan out. Next time it will.
