Ideas on how to score a scaled in house CF comp

Hey Guys,

I run a small affiliate in North Queensland in Australia. My clients are only newbies at CrossFit and to them signing up for the Open is something they would freak out about. I had an idea to run a little in house comp with scaled options of the open wod's just to give them the feel of what competition is like.

But.......having a range of people at totally different abilities, how could I score them to ensure everyone has a fair go?

I have one bloke who could do 14.1 as prescribed then the rest are women whom none have ever snatched or ever clean and jerked 25kg yet (they are still in the learning stage). I have a range of ages too, from early 20 to 40 year olds. I have 12 clients that would participate.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Ideas on how to score a scaled in house CF comp

Maybe make it a team competition. I have seen lots of gyms doing this during the Open, it makes for friendly competition inside the gym even for people who have to scale, are beginners, whatever...

divide the gym into 2 teams. Everyone's score earns points that correspond to your placement in the gym 1-12 pts. for 1st-12th place. Then you add each teams points up and find the winning team (lowest total score) each week, and keep the tally for the overall winning team at the end of the Open.

You decide how their scaling affects the scoring, maybe all rx's rank highest, then maybe double unders with scaled weight score below that, then single unders with scaled weight score below that... Anyway, everyone still has to try their hardest to place as high in their scaling as possible to help the team, and with point scoring like this, even the worst performer will only be one point behind the next person, so they won't be dragging the team down too much and there's always a chance to make a comeback the next week.
