The Catalyst Games is back for 2017 and we are trying a twist on last years team competition, we will have 4 person same sex teams facing off.
There are always some great athletes that show up to test their fitness and to simply have a great time throwing down with their community. So don't be left in the dust, gather your squad and get signed up sooner rather than later.
We have made an attempt to keep the standards to help guide which division is best for you very simple, take a look at the list below when deciding if Rx or Scaled is the right open for you and your team.
Remember, these are minimum standards to help guide you in which division to choose…we made an effort to keep them very clear so you can choose to go Rx or Scaled. The final 2 workouts will involve higher skill movements and heavier weights than what is listed below as they will only be completed by the top teams in their respective divisions.
