2017 ACF Open Scoring System
ACF Open Scoring System
On Thursday, February 23rd at 5:30pm, CrossFit will release the Open workout for the first week. Subsequent workouts will be released over the next 4 Thursdays at the same time.
Competitors will have until 5:00pm PST Monday to log their scores to the 2017 ACF Open Scorecard. The scorecard link will be published prior to start of the competition.
Each event during the Open will have three levels that competitors may choose to complete.
Competitors have the option to choose which level of the workout they wish to perform.
Choosing a particular level of the workout for one event will not prevent a competitor from doing the next workout at a different level.
One rep of the Rx’d version of the workout will be ranked ahead of the best score of the Intermediate version of the workout, and one rep of the Scaled version of the workout will be ranked ahead of the best score of the Fun version of the workout—we want to celebrate and reward the hard-earned first-ever push-ups, pull-ups, muscle-ups, double-unders and lifting PRs.
Competitors earn points in each event based on their finish. At the end of the competition, the team with the least amount of points is the winner. Points are based on relative performances: A win is worth 1 point, second is worth 2 points, third is worth 3 points, no matter the margin of victory. The point margins between places are constant.
All Fun competitors will be assigned a score of “n+1”, where n = the score of the lowest placing Intermediate competitor. Based on different scaling options and the goal of allowing every member to participate, reps and movements may differ from competitor to competitor in the Fun division. We are rewarding all Fun competitors for participating.
For each event, teams are scored on an equal amount of athletes per team. Example: If one team has 16 athletes participate in an event, and others had 17, 18 and 19, only the top 16 scores are counted for each team. This way “no shows” do not hurt the team if they are not able to participate for any reason.
Any competitor who does not perform a workout, or does not log their score will not receive a score for that workout.
