08/21/2016 Subway Series at CFSBK

The 2016 NYC Subway Series at CrossFit South Brooklyn

Another year has gone by, and it's time once again for an NYC affiliate throwdown: the sixth annual Subway Series! All NYC affiliates are invited to participate—the affiliate with the best overall score at the end of four events wins the Subway Series Trophy and bragging rights for a whole year! The second event of the year will take place right here at CFSBK on Sunday, August 21st.

Scoring
Scoring will work "Open-style": top 3 male and top 3 female athletes from each affiliate will score based on their place finish in each event. Athletes may score in any event regardless of attendance at other events. 

The ultimate series winner will be the affiliate with the least points after all 4 events have been completed. In the event of a tie, a 5th tie-breaking event will be held. 

As last year, an Rx division and Scaled division trophy will be awarded. 

Registration
All athletes MUST register for each individual event in advance via the Subway Series website in order to participate. Each event will be capped at 100 total participants, so we strongly advise you to register ASAP. These events sell out quickly. 

REGISTER HERE!

10/15/16 Fight Gone Bad!

It's almost that time of year again...

Fight Gone Bad 2016!

Since 2008, CrossFit South Brooklyn has conducted a yearly fundraiser in the form of a workout called Fight Gone Bad. Last year, we raised nearly $27,000 for the Brooklyn Community Foundation (BCF), a local organization dedicated to improving the lives of people in Brooklyn by strengthening communities through local giving, grantmaking, and community service. This year, we'll be partnering with BCF again and hope to surpass last year's donation numbers.

Last year we had 160 members participating and this year, we’re capping it at 200. 

The registration deadline is Monday September 5th, 2016.

Tell Me More… 

When is Fight Gone Bad? 
Saturday, October 15th, 2016. First heat begins at 9am

What is Fight Gone Bad?

Three rounds, as many reps as possible, of:
Wall-balls, 20lb, 10ft / 14lb, 9ft 
Sumo deadlift high-pulls, 75/55 pounds
Box Jumps, 20" box 
Push-presses, 75/55 pounds 
Row
 

In this workout, you move from each of five stations after a minute. The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. When the announcer calls "Rotate,” athletes must move to next station immediately. Each of the three rounds is five minutes, followed by a one-minute rest. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.

What does the registration fee cover?
The $30 fee covers the cost of a team tshirt.  You and your team will be able to create a unique team name and decide on tshirt colors.  We also give prizes for the team with the most spirit...think costumes, props, etc!!!

Why are we fundraising?
In the past, our annual FGB fundraiser has been a great way to bring our community together to support great charities—and we chose to support the Brooklyn Community Foundation because Brooklyn has been exceptionally good to us and we want to help give back to the community that CFSBK is proud to call home. If you're not familiar with BCF, make sure you visit their website to check them out. Or if you're lazy, at least check out their list of Grantees; we're sure you'll find one or two not far from you!

Will there be a fundraising minimum? 
 
While we'd love for everyone to make wholehearted attempts to raise funds, there is no fundraising minimum to participate. However, as in years past, there will be some sweet prizes awarded to the top Individual Fundraisers!  

Ok, you keep talking about fundraising but how should I do this and when should I begin?

Once our registration deadline ends on September 5th, we'll create teams consisting of six athletes. Shortly after, athletes will get an email from us with their team assignments and all of the details to set up their fundraising pages. We'll be using Crowdrise as our fundraising platform again and participants will have individual fundraising pages that will be super easy to share with friends and family.  (Check out last year's main fundraising page HERE!)

Tell me more about the workout. What if I can't do it Rx'd?
Here's Coach Glassman explaining FGB in detail. And don't worry, we have scaling options available!  

So the day begins at 9am, but how long will it last? When will my team go?

The length of the event depends on how many total athletes/teams we have. We run two teams through the workout simultaneously and new heats start every 20 minutes.  Unfortunately, we can’t tell you exactly what time your team will be going until we get closer to the event. Of course, we hope that you plan on spending a few hours with us, not only competing but also supporting your fellow teams.  And per usual, we'll have some tasty adult beverages to enjoy!

What if I can't attend that Saturday, October 15?
You can still sign up to be a part of a team to participate in fundraising and get a team tshirt.  Unfortunately though we won't be running a Fight Gone Belated this year.Sign up anyway and select the option to be on Fight Gone Belated! 

Ok, I'm sold.  Where do I register?
Sign up here for Fight Gone Bad 2016!
