CFSL's 'Friday Night Lights': Are You Prepared for the 2014 CrossFit Games Season?
The first workout for the 2014 CrossFit Games season will be announced on Thursday 27 February, and the main event for CFSL athletes will be held on Friday nights. The question is… are you signed up and ready to go?
CFSL is still in our first year, so competitive CrossFit and the Open is new for many of the athletes here. CFSL will be hosting weekly competitions on Friday nights for all CFSL athletes hoping to compete / participate in the CrossFit Games Open 2014. Since this is our first year as a community taking on the Open, we’ve brought in amazing catered food and great sponsors who have donated prizes that will be given out to CFSL athletes… and maybe even one lucky and inspirational spectator.
Evolve will be on-site serving their famous Paleo-friendly gourmet meals. The prizes have been provided by our friends at Reebok, VitaCoco, and Upcakes, as well as several other local businesses.
Prizes will be given to participants in the following categories:
Top Male and Female Athlete – The top male and female CFSL members who participate in the workout on Friday night will receive some very nice prize packages. Scoring is simple, you just need to post the best score on the Open workout amongst those competing on Friday night. (Coaches are not eligible to win prizes).
Most Inspirational Athletes – Prizes will also be given, regardless of score on their workout, to the most inspirational athletes who participate on Friday night. The prizes will be given at the coaches’ discretion based on performances that exemplified the fortitude that we like to see in CFSL athletes.
Most Inspiring Supporter – We know that CFSL community gives our athletes a HUGE competitive advantage, so it seems only fair to also give a prize to the member who best exemplifies the support, sportsmanship and enthusiasm of the CFSL way.
Our Friday Night Lights event will start at 6 pm sharp for the next five weeks. (That does mean that there will not be a 6 p.m. session on those nights ) We will have sign-up sheets at the front of the gym. Please note on the sign-up sheet if you are intending to (1) participate as an athlete or (2) participate as an avid supporter of the CFSL athletes. Participating athletes will be assigned to a heat and notified of their heat assignment upon arriving on Friday night.
We hope to have at least 50 people there to create an atmosphere that will help our athletes to flourish in their first step in the 2014 CrossFit Games
It’s Games time = fun times.
