Hey! Hey you! Have you registered for the house cup yet? Why not?
While we aren't ready to announce all the changes for this years 5 week House Cup smorgasbord, here are some things that are new this year to help you get on board:
Last year, registration for the CrossFit Open was required in order to participate in the United Barbell House Cup. Since then, the CrossFit Games has officially partnered with Glock handguns as a sponsor, handing out certificates for them as prizes at the event. So we have decided to only require members to register with us to participate in the House Cup.
We know many of you love participating in the CrossFit Open. There is a great sense of competition and community created by comparing yourself to athletes participating globally. You can absolutely still participate in the 2017 CrossFit Open... all we are saying is you don't have to.
If You Miss a Week
Last year we had it set up so that if you were out of town for a week or two, you cost your team the 100% participation point. This year we are working out a system so if you are out of town and cannot for a couple weeks participate, it will not penalize your team.
For those of you who are new to the House Cup or the CrossFit Open, there are both scaled and RX versions of each workout, so all can participate.... no excuses!
We are hoping to announce the teams as soon as next week! So stop thinking about it and register! (Captains - step it up!)
