COMPETITOR CLASSES

Some opinions on this please RCFV members:
We are thinking of introducing a ‘competitors class’ to potentially run for an hour or an hour and a half every other week possibly on a Wednesday between 7:30pm and 9:00pm.
However, it must be highlighted that this would not be an advanced class as such, as CrossFit is universally scaleable to all abilities. Through following the programming of RCFV together with utilising open gym sessions to further work on skill development, members can and will progress in competence.
It is proposed that the ‘competitors class’ will provide the opportunity for those members who proactively enter CrossFit competitions to have some more coaching/time to work on more complex skills and competition strategy in a competitive environment. Sessions would consist of skill/strength work with workouts included as well.
There would be a few proposed criteria to provide entry to these classes to ensure maximum benefit to all involved:
1. As stated previously, to be proactively entering CrossFit competitions.
2. To be of a standard of CrossFitter who possesses the ability to perform (well!) the majority of movements commonly used in CrossFit workouts.
3. As a guide, to be able to perform the majority of the named ‘girl’ WODs as Rx and at the intensity they are intended (I.e. rxing Fran but taking 12 minutes is not the aim here).

So would anyone be interested? Again, this is not an advanced class and should not be treated as such. Simply a way to prepare for competition with others who are keen to compete.
