Fight to Flourish – CrossFit Competition
Grab a partner and join us September 12, 2020!
CrossFit Salt de Terre and The Youth Crisis Center invite adults and teens to compete together, at our first ever Fight to Flourish event, raising funds and awareness for Teen Suicide. This event is inspired by the passing of a fellow CrossFitter, Cora Schryver of Ojai, CA who took her life at age 13. Cora loved animals, the outdoors, and CrossFit. In her gym, she was known for “pushing people past their comfort zones,” always giving it her all, and for wearing only Converse sneakers when working out. Through this partner style competition, our aim is to honor and remember the teens, families, and loved ones, like Cora’s, affected by teen suicide. Event proceeds will be donated to The Youth Crisis Center, to aid in their mission of caring for those “who have been exposed to traumatic situations such as divorce, homelessness, relocation, loss of life, bullying and abuse” and in their efforts to build a recreation center for their teen residents.
Event participants are encouraged to workout in Converse sneakers, in remembrance of Cora, if they have them.
Event registration opens May 4th and will run through September 4th. Event capped at 50 teams. Cost is $40 per team that registers before August 16th and $50 per team that registers after August 16th. Team scholarships are available.
During the event, we will have a vendor village on-site, featuring local health and wellness products for teens and adults, as well as a food truck and smoothie station. Spectators are free and we encourage all attendees to patronize our neighbor brewery, Tabula Rasa Brewing.
This event will have six divisions: Adult Male/Teen Male, Adult Female/Teen Female, Adult Male/Teen Female, Adult Female/Teen Male, Adult Female/Adult Female, Adult Male/Adult Male. Fight to Flourish is designed to be a fun, approachable event. This means you won’t see any super high level gymnastics skills like muscle ups, pistols, handstand walks, etc. and the weights will be manageable for the majority of skill levels. That said, scaling is absolutely allowed (see below).
T-shirts are included in the price of registration. Registration closes one week prior to the event date, or when the event sells out (whichever comes first).
There will be one written movement standard for each movement for this event, but scaling will be allowed. If you do scale a movement your team is just eliminated from prizes. Scores will still be shown on the leaderboard. Only the workout scaled will be denoted on the leaderboard as “scaled”. “Scaled” scores will fall below all “Rx” scores on that workout. Scaled movements will still be judged on your standard.
This is the first of many CrossFit events and competitions we look forward to hosting in the future!
