Today is the day you have all been waiting for! (Ok... maybe not, but I know there are at least a few of you who have been biting your nails in anxious excitement) We have completed the new Level 2 standards sheet! Here is what you need to know:
Movements have been added. Others subtracted. Others, just the score has changed. New WODs have found their way on the list. We are even preparing to release a master's standards sheet. Basically, it's an entire overhaul.
Why change the standards?
More of you UB athletes have tried your hands at competition. Overall as a population you have stepped up your game. We would like the level 2 standards to reflect what we believe a well rounded, experienced CrossFit athlete should aiming to achieve in gymnastic, strength, aerobic, and mixed modal capacities.
One other change is the expectations of the Level 2 athlete, including engaging in competition and continuing to pass level 2 standards that the athlete was unable to achieve at the time they joined the class.
How will the new sheet be enforced (IMPORTANT!)
Please read how this will affect everyone:
Those of you who are already Level 2 - You will have 4 weeks to retest your standards and remain in the class. Last night was the first of a 2 week "Test Fest" in class where you got a lot of the different standards handled.
Those of you who are not yet Level 2 - While you still need 70% to test into the Level 2 class, the Level 2 class will be open as a "Level 2 to Prep Class" on June 2nd, 9th, and 16th to anyone who has tested over 55%. If you are interested, I strongly suggest downloading the sheet grab a coach and start testing so you can partake!
The new level 2 athletes can expect to see regular level 2 classes beginning June 23rd.
