Male and Female OPEN Divisions - $95 - GET A REGISTRATION TICKET HERE

Our goal for the Southern Crusade as an event has always been to remain inclusive for the CrossFit Community. Having the OPEN division structured in this way, we believe, achieves this.

This goes a long way to solving the age-old dilemma of "should I Rx the division or not?".

This event allows you to decide which version of the workout best suits YOU for YOU to get the best outcome for YOU, as you do day in and day out at your Affiliate when your coaching team write it on the board.

  • This division will be programmed and scored as per the CrossFit Games OPEN.
  • Athletes will be required to select which version of the workout they will complete, the "Rx" OR the "Scaled" version.
  • As with the OPEN, athletes completing the minimum work requirements in the "Rx" workouts will score higher than athletes who complete the minimum work requirements of the "scaled" workouts.
  • The workouts will be released in the week prior to the event and you will let us know which version you will be doing on the day.
  • 24 male + 24 Female spaces ONLY (1 division each)
  • All athletes will complete 3 Workouts with an "Rx" and "scaled" version available for each.
  • There will be a semi Final and a Final for "Rx" competitors.
    • $150 – 1st place, $100 – 2nd place, $50 – 3rd place.
  • There will be a Final for "scaled" competitors.
    • $100 – 1st place, $75 – 2nd place, $50 – 3rd place.

Other notes and interesting stuff

  • Other prizes will be available and will be announced closer to the event.
  • Athletes should talk to their Coach/Affiliate owner to determine which version, "Rx" or "Scaled", is the most suitable one for them as the WODs are released. As a rough guide, if you compete in the CrossFit Open and do a majority of the WODs as Rx, you would be suited for the Rx workouts. Similarly, if you compete in the CrossFit Open and require scaling on a couple of the WODs, then the scaled workouts would be more suited for you.

Movement Standards:

The movements listed are to be a guide only, some are programmed, some aren't. It's CrossFit, prepare for the unknown and unknowable, but the intention of the event is to be safe, fun and inclusive while providing all athletes with a suitable challenge.

 

Judging:

Our Wild South Coaching Team will be providing the Head Judges for each heat to ensure a consistent level of judging is achieved.

The Youth divisions will have the assistance of a dedicated Wild South Youth PYCC Coach for the day to further help brief the workouts and help with any other issues on the day.

All volunteers registered to help prior to the event will receive a free 2022 Southern Crusade T-shirt and a free feed.

We will be seeking a couple of volunteers from every affiliate that has athletes attending.

All judges are encouraged to have completed an online CrossFit Judging course (CrossFit OPEN standard) and will be thoroughly briefed and supported by our experienced Coaching Team.

 

Coffee fiends never fear, there will be a coffee cart available throughout the day so raid your money boxes and bring some extra cash.
