*Important note from Armand*
The schedule above is subject to change. We will try to keep the flow of this going smoothly so, THERE IS ONLY ONE TEAM CAPTAIN ALLOWED TO ATTEND THE WOD BRIEFINGS! I know how many questions can arise so we will have just one athlete from each team doing the asking. We will NOT be corralling athletes prior to their heats. We will not be running early on any of the WOD’s (may be running late) so you are expected to report to your lane assignments as scheduled (Lane assignments will be released as the weekend continues). We will not hold any heats back to wait for a team that is not prepared. Please check back often for more updates.
We have the workouts ready! There are a total of 6 WOD’s. This one is going to be the real deal. If you are on the borderline of signing up but you are a bit nervous because of movements, don’t be! I think that the common CrossFitter can complete a majority of the movements. Just be sure you have a team mate that can complete basic muscle up and handstand skills.
You don’t want to miss this!! Get your team signed up TODAY!!
