Score validation

Participants will assigned at random to judge other teams at the event. Movement standards must be followed and there will be a head judge present at each box.

RX and Scaled on the same leaderboard

For each workout there will be a RX version and a Scaled version. For each workout you choose to do the version that matches your skill level. 

Scoring

The leaderboard will rank athletes based on the amount of points they score. The participant with the least amount of points wins. 1st place = 1 point, 2nd place = 2 points and so on. Scores in the different workout versions are prioritized: RX>Intermediate>Scaled. The lowest RX score - meeting the minimum work requirement - will be placed right above the best intermediate score on the leaderboard.

Minimum work requirement

There will be a minimum work requirement (MWR) for each RX version of a workout. If the MWR isn't met the score will be reduced du a scaled score. The intention of the MWR is to make sure that the participant who chooses a RX version of a workout is capable of performing all the excersises required.

We strongly encourage all participants to  choose the version that is best suited for his/her specific skill level. A better placement on the leaderboard should not be at the expense of a good experience and doing a good workout. The ability to meet the MWR doesn't necessarily mean that it's the right choice for a given participant, but it can help make the right decision between RX and scaled version.

Prizes

There will be prizes for the overall winners and for the local winners in the respectable boxes.
