I got these awhile ago from Tony Budding. You may want to adjust accordingly ...

Barbara - sub 14 min
Chelsea - +4 rounds
Cindy - +27 rounds
Diane - sub 4 min
Fran - sub 3 min
Grace - sub 3 min
Helen - sub 8 min
Jackie - sub 6:30 min
Karen - sub 4:30 min
Mary - +13 rounds
Tabata Squats - 27 (lowest round)

Anthony -

I agree about "adjusting accordingly". Those standards look quite high...maybe they are more appropriate as standards for "Elite Crossfitter" status rather than something to earn high school football player's a t-shirt.

Not that it really matters to me, I have a ways to go no matter what :-) Either way, it's something to shoot for!

While having a set time would be nice. I would say you need to scale the times down for high school athletes. Also having a set time takes the fun out of reaching PR's. I think a person would not try as hard once they reach that level. The goal is to beat the time that you previously had.

These are high school kids unfamiliar w/ CF movements. For example, a good Fran score requires you kip your pullups. Why not let them compete against each other in the Wod's rather than against beasts like OPT? Keep it fun.

T-shirts are cheap. Pick a benchmark and test it every couple months. Top 3 finishers get a FRAN t-shirt (or whatever else). You can do it outright, or do it by position. Those shirts will become very meaningful.

You might also consider choosing a couple benchmarks, like Cindy and Diane, and make it possible for any kid to earn it. Scale them according to position, e.g. 18 rounds of Cindy for DBs, 12 for linemen. You could set up Diane with the same target time for everyone and pick a "standard" weight for each position to do the WOD, e.g. RBs do Diane at 190, OL do it at 225 (once you get over 200, it gets hard).

Just some thoughts.

I took a stab at creating benchmark times for the named routines. I reviewed the data from James and Anthony (thank you gentlemen) along with the CrossFit North standards. I am presenting it as an Excel file to this august body of athletes more commonly referred to as crossfitters.

Please review, critique, fill-in the blanks, and add to as needed so that all of us here can set short term and long term goals with the named WODs.

I'm looking to put together a list of the named WODs and what a level 1-4 standard might be.
I'm doing the exact same thing here for a tracker program.
Is this list alive somewhere ? I've ony got this one :

thank you in advance!
