2024 CrossFit Open – Friday Night Lights – Everything else you wanted to know about the Open
THE WORLDWIDE OPEN
The road to the CrossFit Games starts with the worldwide Open, the largest participatory sporting event on Earth. During the three-week competition, one event will be released online each Thursday, and athletes have four days to record and submit scores. Anyone who is at least 14 years old can sign up and join in the first stage of the CrossFit Games season with special divisions for teenagers, age groups, and adaptive athletes.
The Open allows hundreds of thousands of individual athletes to quantify their performance and rank themselves with peers. Separate hashtag-based leaderboards will be available for teachers, military service members, healthcare workers, firefighters, college students, law enforcement officers, and hundreds of other professions, interests, and groups. The leaderboard will also be searchable by continent, country, or user-generated hashtags. For example, athletes can search for the fittest in South America or Switzerland. (Please note: Countries are assigned to athletes based on citizenship and assigned to teams based on location.)
The Affiliate Cup competition allows teams of athletes from each gym to compete with one another and potentially advance to the Quarterfinals, Semifinals, and Games.
The 2024 CrossFit Games Open takes place from Feb. 29 – March 18, 2023.
The top ten percent of individual Open athletes on each continent advance to the second stage of the competition, the Quarterfinals.

2024 Everlasting In-House Team Competition!
Congrats on signing up for the 2024 CrossFit Open! In doing so you are also part of our annual Everlasting Intramural Open Team Competition!
You all will be divided up into teams by Bret and will compete for the in house crown!
Every Friday – Mar 1st, Mar 8th and Mar 15th. The workout of the day will be the open workout. So if you come on a Friday you will be doing it anyway (so you might as well sign up 🙂
You may do the workout at any class on Friday but we encourage you to come between 4-7pm for Friday Night Lights. We all get together, cheer, judge and compete with each other – it’s a blast!
If you cannot attend on Friday it will be your responsibility to secure a judge and schedule a time on Sat, Sun or Mon to complete your workout. You cannot interfere with any classes on those days. All scores must be logged into the CF website by YOU by Monday 8pm. Do not wait until the last minute to submit, if you are late it will not count. Redoing the workout is not recommended unless you have a shot at advancing to the next round. Give it your all the first time and have fun doing it.
Here is how you earn points for your team:
-Complete the workout each week in the allotted time frame (1 point per person)
-Complete the workout at Friday Night Lights (4 points per person)
–Complete the Judges course and help judge (1 point per person judged – this could add up!)
