The 2019 Affiliate Cup

The 2019 Badger CrossFit Affiliate Cup!

Like last year, we are doing a new way of doing the CrossFit Games Open at BCF,  and we think you will like it! We have MANY new faces and it’s going to be an amazing event that EVERYONE can partake in.

The biggest change this year is we are doing it on FRIDAY NIGHTS! Aka “Friday Night Lights.”

How it works

If you’re unfamiliar with the CrossFit Open, it’s CrossFit’s largest annual online competition with over 275,000 people registered from around the world in 2015 and the 1st stepping stone to The CrossFit Games, the ultimate test of fitness. Workouts are released each Thursday night for 5 weeks. Read more about The Open. For most of us, the Open is a time to see how we’ve improved our fitness in the past year and push outside our comfort zones. Our community comes together and forms an amazing bond during this time.  This year, we go into battle each Friday with our teams as we compete in our version, The Badger CrossFit Affiliate Cup

The Badger CrossFit Affiliate Cup

For five consecutive weeks on FRIDAY NIGHTS, we host The Open at BCF in a team competition format. The event kicks off at 5:00 PM each Friday and athletes will represent one of four or five teams (depending on # of athletes). The teams will earn points for participating in a variety of activities listed below.

What are you competing for? The Badger CrossFit Affiliate Cup Trophy and a private BBQ for the winning team when the weather turns!

On one of the nights prior to the open, our team captains will get together and draft athletes to their teams.

Teams will form private Facebook groups and begin planning their team t-shirts, spirit ideas and other fun stuff.

Prepping for The Open / Don’t be Nervous

Every year, athletes get nervous or are uncertain about participating in The Open. Don’t be. The Open is an amazing experience and we have been preparing for this for the entire year, but definitely focusing on it the last few months (if you haven’t noticed).  If you end up not being able to do a movement, there is a scaled division that you can participate it each week at your choosing. Or choose Coach Tyler’s version of fun “Open” workouts.

If you are unable to make the Friday workout and still want to participate in that weeks event, you’ll need to make it up. We will be doing the Open WODs for the class workout on Fridays all day.

You must have a judge from the Open to validate your performance if you are officially registered with The CrossFit Games.

Partnerships

Our community features some amazing athletes and we have local businesses who we want to help connect with them. If you’re interested in partnering with us during the Open, please take a look at our sponsorship packet by emailing info@badgercrossfit.com

Final Thoughts

We look forward to another great year, and appreciate you all considering this. If you want to step outside your comfort zone, have fun, get fit, and meet awesome people, you’re in the right place.
