Great Lakes Games 2018
Saturday January 20th, 2018



So, you want a chance to compete like a CF Games Team, THIS IS IT! This is our ONLY 6 person team event!    In the past we have had teams show up and use this event as a “tune-up” for their CF Regional contending team.  We have also had teams from gyms just looking to compete and have fun in the 6 athlete format.  Bottom line: You want to compete as a team of 6, THIS IS IT!


LOCATION - Just like the last two years we are going to be back at CROSSFIT in the “D”

Date - JANUARY 20th, 2018

FORMAT - 3 Males - 3 Females (many teams do compete as a gym, but this is not required)


WODS - Expect 3-4 trips onto the floor as a team.  Expect to see multiple parts.  Expect to have 2 or more teammates working at a time (each team will have two judges per workout assigned to them).

CAPACITY - 36 total teams


*DIVISIONS - RX & JV:  RX better have movements in their tool box that could be seen on a regional floor.  Expect to see regional level weights.  JV, no need to worry about things like Muscle Ups, Handstand walks, Pistols (this is NOT a “scaled” division, things like pulls up, T2B are fair game).  




To register a team for the 2018 Great Lakes Games you ONLY NEED YOUR TEAM CAPTAIN TO PROVIDE THEIR INFORMATION.  Team captains will be provided a link to fill out the remainder of their teams info (names and shirt sizes).  In order to have shirts ordered for your team, captains must have provided all team information by JANUARY 5th, 2018.  As for teammate names, as long as you show up with 3 men and 3 women and they all fill out their waivers, we are good.  


Payment Changes for 2018


  • Pay $327.05 on October 24th.  This option is going to be a ONE DAY ONLY, 20% regular registration fee.  This will be open by minute one of 10/24/17 and will close before the morning of 10/25/17.  This will cover ALL members of the team and the price includes ALL processing and platform fees.  



  • Regular Registration OPENS on 10/27/17 and to secure your team a spot we will collect a ⅓ DOWN-PAYMENT of 136.27.   The ONLY information you will need to register is TEAM CAPTAIN INFO!  (You do NOT need all team members names, emails, shirt sizes, etc).   

  • Within 24 hours of registering the team captain will receive TWO invoices via the Lex Artis company Square account.  Your second ⅓ payment will be due by DECEMBER 1st, 2017 and you FINAL ⅓ payment will be due by JANUARY 3rd, 2018.

  • These invoices may be PAID EARLY if you like.  (I sign up by paying my 33.3% down and then I just pay both invoices as soon as I get them.  I am 100% sure that my team is in, I just pay them immediately, I am done).  If you decide to wait, you will receive weekly reminders that will always include the link to pay your invoice.  (this way you don’t have to email us because you lost your payment link).
