2nd Annual CornFIT Tournament

Join us for an afternoon of "fun"draising at Green Mountain CrossFit's new Hyde Park facility.  $50 to register your team.  All profits to be donated to Green Mountain United Way.  Come prepared with your teammate and your gym's custom Cornhole boards!  

The tournament is based on the familiar backyard game Cornhole, but with a bit of a CrossFit twist. CornFit will be played in a double elimination format, a 10 burpee penalty for any player whose feet go past the front edge of the board and a Team Dance-off to resolve any disputes.  Each of the 32 teams will consist of 2 players and proceeds from the $50 per team registration fee will support the Green Mountain United Way.  Registration is open to the entire community, from competitive CrossFit athletes to those who simply love a game of Cornhole for a good cause.

This years tournament is at our new GMCF-North facility located at 576 E Main St., Hyde Park, VT. All profits from the event, raffles or silent auctions will benefit the Green Mountain United Way’s programs and services. We will be firing up the grill and providing Burgers & Hot Dogs for participants but you should plan to bring your own beverages.

The winning team will receive the title of 2018 Vermont CornFIT Champions, their names on the official Tournament plaque, and a custom trophy. 

“We are always surprised by the creative ways that our local community finds to support our agency, and this is no exception! Green Mountain Crossfit has always been such an exceptional supporter of Green Mountain United Way and we are thrilled to be a part of the tournament again, and this time we’re hoping to field some United Way teams that win!” said Tawnya Kristen, Executive Director of Green Mountain United Way.  “One of main initiative areas is Health and when GMCF came up with the notion of combining a game that anyone is able to play with a bit of competition and community building, I knew we wanted to be a part of it! The success of last year’s event has us looking forward to more fun in August.“

Mark your calendars for the 7th Annual Vermonster Challenge at Green Mountain CrossFit in Berlin! 

Vermont's premier CrossFit competition, The Vermonster offers a variety of challenges for all competitors whether Scaled, RX, or heavy-hitting Master.  Depending on the division, teams compete over the course of the day or the full weekend in workouts specifically designed for the unique indoor/outdoor facility. Workouts will be announced in the coming months, but don't wait to reserve your spot as space is limited and we tend to fill up pretty quick for this one!  Hope to see you all there!

If you want to participate as a Judge or Volunteer, scroll down for more information!  We are always looking for teammates to help run the day.

The Open Division:  September 8th and 9th - $380 Team Registration

The Rec Division: September 8th Only - $280 Team Registration

The Masters Division: September 9th Only - $280 Team Registration

*All teams should be comprised of 2 Males/2 Females.  Any exceptions to this will be taken on a case by case basis.

The Open Division is designed for intermediate to advanced level athletes who would consider themselves good candidates to compete in the CrossFit Open. If you have successfully completed a full season of Open workouts in the Rx division you will be at home in this category. There will be a minimum of 6 workouts that have no advanced gymnastics (HSPUs, Muscle-ups, Pistols) or prohibitive weights. Top teams will get a final workout where anything goes as far as movements and weights.

The Rec Division is for beginner to intermediate athletes who would feel at home doing the scaled version of the CrossFit Open. These are athletes who have good fundamental CrossFit skills but may not have more difficult movements like double-unders, squat snatches or unscaled pull-ups. All Scaled teams will get a minimum of 3 workouts for the day.

The Masters Division is designed for the 40+ intermediate to advanced level athletes  who would consider themselves good candidates to compete in the CrossFit Open. If you have successfully completed a full season of Open workouts in the Rx division you will be at home in this category. There will be a minimum of 3 workouts that have no advanced gymnastics (HSPUs, Muscle-ups, Pistols) or prohibitive weights. Top teams will get a final workout where anything goes as far as movements and weights.

The weights listed above should be considered working weights, not 1RM. We recommend that athletes can complete short sets of at least 3-5 at these weights. In most cases partners will be allowed to split up work as needed between partners, so don’t let one or two movements scare you off! We reserve the right to use weights above those listed or include movements not listed (but we won’t be too mean!).

The Recreational Division is a great chance to try your first competition! We want to be as inclusive as possible in the recreational division. If you can’t meet the standards for a few of these movements but still want to compete, we encourage you to go for it. We will work with you on any mobility or movement limitations you have so you can still get the competition experience and have fun! 

Please contact us if you have questions or concerns.

As you all know, good judging is critical to running a great event.  Judging requires a good eye for movement, a knowledge of basic standards, and just as importantly - the ability to count!  If you know anyone at your gym (member OR coach) who would be a good fit, and would be interested, please have them reach out to our head judge at gary@greenmountaincrossfit.com

Judges will all get a free T-shirt, free food, and $60 for the day.  We are looking to fill 10 judging slots - so any help is appreciated.

VOLUNTEER DETAILS

Not around the whole day?  Do you still want to help, but Judging not your thing?  VOLUNTEER!!  Please contact our volunteer coordinator at melissa@greenmountaincrossfit.com
