The Open narrows the Masters field from the thousands to the hundreds. The world's top 200 masters athletes in each age division in the Open will be automatically invited to compete in the online Masters Qualifier in April.
This four-day competition will further test the athletes. This time, it's not one workout per week but several workouts packed into a long weekend.
Land a spot in the top 20, and you will be invited to compete in Carson, California.
At Southern CrossFit we are always looking for new ways to cater to all our members.
With that being said and with the recent boom in the SXF Babies we are going to be trialing a Mums & Bubs Class on Tuesday the 22nd of March at 10:30am @ SXF Willetton!!
If there is enough interest we would be looking at holding this class 1-2 times per week during April.
This class will be open to all mums of any level and no foundations course is needed.
The classes will be tailored to suit new mums with babies as well as expecting mums.
The workouts will be lightweight, low impact and loads of fun.

2016 REEBOK CROSSFIT GAMES SEASON SCHEDULE
STAGE 1: The Open
Five Weeks | Feb. 25 - March 28, 2016
16.1: Feb. 25 - 29
16.2: March 3 - 7
16.3: March 10 - 14
16.4 March 17 - 21
16.5 March 24 - 28
More than 272,000 people from around the globe competed in the Open last year. As the largest CrossFit community event of the season, the Open ties together athletes from within the same gym to those in their broader city, country and world.
For five weeks, you—and the hundreds of thousands of other people who signed up—are at the whim of the Director of the Games Dave Castro, taking on workouts that may push you to learn a new skill, improve the skills you already have or go into a darker place than you’ve ever been before.
The Open welcomes anyone 14 to 100 years old. (We’ll take any centenarians, too.) All you need to do is sign up, and enter a score each week. You can complete the workouts at a participating CrossFit affiliate in front of a judge, or film your performance from anywhere you want and submit a link as proof.
To make the Open even more accessible, we introduced a scaled option in 2015. Each time a workout is released, athletes will be given two versions: Rx’d and Scaled. The Scaled-workout option is designed to be accessible to the majority of people who attend CrossFit affiliates. If you do CrossFit, there’s a very high chance you can do the Open, too.
Workouts are released each week on Thursday at 5 p.m. PT, and athletes have four days or 96 hours to complete the workout and submit their score. Scores are due before 5 p.m. PT that Monday.
The fittest athletes will advance to the next stage of the season.
Due to the success of the CrossFit Kids trial classes held last year we are looking to run the classes in the upcoming school term - Feb 1st - April 8th.
If you are interested or know someone who is contact me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org
Age groups will be as follows:
4-8yrs - 3:30pm - 4pm
9-13yrs - 4:15pm - 5pm
And the classes will be taking place at Southern CrossFit Willetton

This September Southern CrossFit is going to participate in Footy Colours Day on Friday September 4th, to raise money for the Fight Cancer Foundation.
Each year, Fight Cancer Foundation asks all Australians to unite and wear their favourite football team's colours on the first Friday in September and help support the fight against cancer.
Football unites communities – whether you follow AFL, NRL, Soccer, Rugby Union or any other sport – unite, stand shoulder-to-shoulder with your fellow Aussies and support young Aussies living with cancer.
On Friday the 4th, we ask that all the members come in ready to workout and have some fun, dressed in their favourite footy teams colours and make a small donation to this great cause.
