Eligibility

In the event that an athlete changes gyms (which were both eligible for the competition) athletes must be active members of the registered gym from July 21, 2018 to the date of the event. This need not apply for athletes who moved from a non-eligible gym into an eligible gym. Team eligibility requirements must be met per CrossFit Games Rulebook Sections 1.12, 1.13, 1.14, 1.15. The "more than half" rule applies beginning July 21st.

Athletes competing for a team must train primarily at that team’s gym for the duration of the Triangle Invitational registration period through the date of competition. The team members' training days and workouts should take place at the team gym starting on July 21st or earlier. Team athletes must train at the designated team location for a minimum of three (3) days a week. The minimum requirement must be met for the duration of the Triangle Invitational registration period. Reasonable accommodations for temporary travel or schooling are permitted but must be documented in the athlete’s training journal or log, and the athlete is advised to email judges@triangleinvitational.com.

Tracking Weekly Workouts

The minimum requirement is evaluated on a weekly basis to ensure athletes are training regularly and consistently at their team location. Athletes CANNOT take the sum of all of their workouts for the entire season and then demonstrate that, over the course of the season they performed on average three workouts a week at the team gym.

Any athletes who believe their team eligibility may be brought into question should document their training in two methods:

  • Detailed training log - a detailed training log stating the gym location, date, and training time for each training session
  • Photos - The athlete’s training log must be accompanied by supporting photographic evidence. An athlete must take date stamped photos or "selfies" (sample photo link) that include an identifying feature of the gym, for every training session. These photos are to be stored in a dedicated email or document folder to be retrieved as necessary.

If an athlete's team eligibility is called into question at any point before or during the competition, the athlete may be asked to provide the proper documentation of team eligibility. If the athlete is unable to adequately prove the validity of their team eligibility the athlete and team will face possible disqualification from competition.

If gym owners are to compete, they are expected to do so with their own gym and also meet the "more than half rule" starting July 21st 2018.

Rx Team: Athlete Standards

All members of team display competency in basic CF movements at standard prescribed loading and reps.

Females are NOT REQUIRED to be able to perform Muscle Ups in the Rx division, even if Muscle Ups are in the workout. Do not let muscle ups prevent your team from signing up in the Rx division. Scoring and WODs will be designed to reward competency in such movements but those who cannot will still be able to compete!

The following should be considered working weights for multiple reps and not a 1-rep max:

  • Snatch: 135/95
  • Clean and Jerk: 185/125
  • Kipping Pullups: Proficient
  • Toes to bar: Proficient
  • Double Unders: Proficient

Teams should have multiple athletes who can perform high skill movements (i.e. muscle-ups)

***Be advised: These loads and skills are recommendations. Triangle Invitational reserves the right to change or program heavier if desired. The above is by no means an all-inclusive list of movements one may see at the competition but is meant to serve as a guideline for the caliber of fitness that will be tested. Athletes who possess broad, general, and inclusive fitness will be rewarded.

Novice Team

Novice teams should generally be comprised of athletes who have 3-12 months of CrossFit experience. This is more of a guideline than a standard. All athletes should be capable of an air squat.

Intermediate Team: Athlete Standards

  • Deadlift: 185/125
  • Clean and Jerk: 135/95
  • Overhead Squat: 115/75
  • Kipping Pullups: Most members proficient
  • Toes to bar: Most members proficient
  • Double Unders: Most members proficient
  • 35+ and 40+ Teams

    These divisions will have similar movements standards as Intermediate with slight changes based on each division. Some events may have movements which can be scaled further than the "standard" in each workout. All members of each team must meet the minimum age requirement by the date of the competition (October 21st).

    Please note: 35+ and 40+ Teams may include athletes from up to two physical-location gyms.

    Each gym may send unlimited teams for any division. For more information refer to the Registration page.

    Structure

    Teams should expect 3-5 workouts over the course of 1 day. The first WOD will be released the Monday before the event, including video demos when appropriate, along with movement standards. Workouts will be released each day until all have been announced.

    All team members will receive a competition t-shirt and prizes will be award to the top three teams in each division.
