The fine print:

Advanced (Rx): You perform 90%+ benchmark workouts with Rx weights and movements. Muscle-ups, handstand push-ups, and all advanced movements are programmed in this division. Common WODs you should be able to do Rx are Fran, Elizabeth, Diane, Grace, Isabel, and Mary. Here is a list of common weights and movements that Advanced competitors should be able to do:

Snatch 135/95
Clean 185/125
Deadlift 255/185
Thruster 135/95
Back Squat 225/155
Kipping Handstand Push-Ups
Chest to Bar Pull-Ups
Pistol squats
Toes to Bar
Double Unders
Rope Climbs

Intermediate (Scaled): You perform roughly 50% of the movements Rx but modify many classic WODs due to strength or gymnastic necessity. People in this division can generally do a kipping pull up (but maybe not a strict one yet). Handstand push-ups are modified in this division. Traditionally scaling involves a reduction in the weight from Rx by approximately 25% (If the Advanced division was doing 95/65# thrusters, an intermediate would be doing 75/45#). 

Novice (Beginner): You perform 80% of the movements scaled. Pull-ups are all assisted (bands, jumping pull-ups, ring rows). Weights lifted are significantly less than Rx, 65/35# Thrusters for example. Full ROM push-ups may be difficult, box jumps are generally steps ups, wall ball shots are with a 10# ball to an 8′ or 9′ target. Single unders only or heavy rope singles. Toes to bar are not expected and hanging knee raises or sit-ups are substituted. ROM standards are encouraged but competition is friendly, mobility restrictions are tolerated, and we are here to have fun! 

Masters: 40+ in the calendar year of the event. Teams are typically a combined age but all team members have to be over 40. A hybrid between the Advanced and Scaled divisions. Weights will be classic Rx (95/65# thrusters) but will not be Rx+ like many competitions have in Rx divisions. Bodyweight and gymnastics skills are similar to Advanced-Rx with generally less advanced versions such as pull-ups instead of CTB pull-ups.
