Event Description The Faction Games is a first of its kind team competition for our area. Teams will compete online and onsite in a series of 7 workouts. These workouts will test every facet of fitness and force the teams to strategize on who on the team will perform each of the workouts. Team make up will vary as teams can have anywhere from 4 to 6 members and the only requirement is that each team have at least 1 of each gender. Teams will have 2 months to complete the 3 online workouts and will be validated by their gyms. They are allowed to repeat the online workouts as many times as they desire to maximize their scores in the online portion. All teams will then advance to the onsite portion of the competition which will be hosted at beautiful SentryWorld in Stevens Point and also Goerke Field where they will compete in 4 more workouts. All workouts will count towards the final leaderboards in this winner take all, no holds barred competition. Team Makeup Team is required to have a minimum of 4 athletes and must have at least 1 of each gender. Teams may add up to 2 additional members. Think of these as both substitutes and athletes who specialize. This allows teams to sub in someone that might be stronger on certain events (a specialist of sorts) and also provides built in subs in case of injury. This brings a real element of strategy and allows the teams to really maximize their scores on certain workouts. Be advised the programming will reward BALANCE, meaning it is not advised to only have 1 of a gender. While you can compete with this makeup be sure that if this is the make up of your team that the person is prepared to shoulder that load as they will most likely require them to participate in all events. New Masters Subdivision Masters subdivision will compete alongside their younger brethren but will be eligible for some extra podium prizes, the top Masters team in each of the Rx and Scaled division will receive prize package from our sponsors. Masters Rx will compete with the Rx division and Masters Scaled will compete with the Scaled division. Same workouts, same weights, same requirements. All member of the Masters team MUST BE 40+ as of APRIL 15TH 2019. Masters teams are also able to double and win the Rx and Open division podium spots.

Just like the Bullet Point Open, workouts will be completed at, judged by and validated by their affiliate/gym. Independent teams may register as such and submit video for validation. Video is required by ALL teams, however, in addition to the gym validation. The teams will then have until June 1st at 11:59 PM CST to submit their scores.
