PATRIOT GAMES LITE 2022
Patriot Games (LITE edition) June 11, 2022
CrossFit Frostbite – 24756 Crestview, Farmington Hills, MI 48335
For 2022 we are going to have a LITE version of Patriot Games. The amount of time on the floor will be the same as the FULL version, but workouts will be more approachable (lighter weights, less reps, easier versions of certain movements, more rest time, etc are all tools that will be used to program the LITE version). This doesn’t mean that you won’t have to do a pull up, a T2B, or a double under for instance, but you may have much lower reps to do OR provided an optional movement equivalent. (If you can do workouts like Grace, Isabel, Diane, Murph (sans vest) RX then then you should be looking at the FULL Patriot Games event, not the LITE)
Format will be TEAM OF THREE ATHLETES OF ANY GENDER. Yes, ANY GENDER!! You can have a team of 3 women, or 3 men, of 2 males and a female, or vice versa 2 females and a male. There will ONLY be 1 division, “3 athlete teams”.
Teams will only go onto the workout floor ONE TIME for 75 MINUTES STRAIGHT! Nice part is this event does NOT take up your entire day. Once you are done you can leave. This also limits the number of people in the building at any one time during the day.
Programming is one trip onto the workout floor for 75 straight minutes. Full programming write up can be found HERE once it is released.
There will be 5 heats throughout the day (8:30am, 10:05am, 11:40am, 1:30pm, & 3:05pm). You only need to show up with enough time to warm up prior to your heat time and you can leave whenever you like. Due to the nature of this event we do NOT have an on-site podium announcement. Winning teams are contacted directly and prize package pick up/shipping are arranged. There is an online leaderboard, but no data is made public until AFTER the last heat of the day has begun. This way, no team has an advantage of knowing what kind of times they need to shoot for.
Patriot Games is an event unlike most out there. Endurance and Grit play a much bigger role. That said, these 75 minutes can be a test for athletes of many skill levels. You get to push your OWN limits.

After you sign up for an event, the team captain (the person who signed up via Throwdowns.com) will have a Throwdowns Account (username and password). That team captain has the ability to login to www.throwdowns.com and get into the team details for the event. From there they can edit teammates, team name, shirts, division, etc. You do NOT need to email Lex Artis to make changes to your registration.
AT 30 DAYS PRIOR TO THE EVENT DATE THIS FEATURE IS TURNED OFF (this is when we export information to process shirt orders and make heat schedules)
**Lex Artis reserves the right to turn this editing feature off earlier than 30 days prior**

LEX ARTIS TRANSFER POLICY
Transferring your registration to another individual or team is 100% depending on the event itself. For some events this is a very easy swap. Other events can ONLY handle transfers when you are replacing yourself or your team with someone of the same gender, division, weight needs, etc. ALL TRANSFER REQUESTS must be emailed to INFO@LEX-ARTIS.NET. NO OTHER FORM OF COMMUNICATION WILL BE RESPONDED TO FOR TRANSFER REQUESTS. All requests are handled on a case by case basis. If we are able to accommodate your request there is NO FEE involved with processing a transfer.
LEX ARTIS WAITING LIST POLICY
Once an event sells out, the ticket option will automatically change to WAITLIST SPOT ONLY. There will be a 100% NON REFUNDABLE fee of $5/athlete (total fee will depend on individual or team size). Waitlists will be limit to 10% of the total capacity of the event itself. If/when a spot opens up, an invoice will be generated and sent to the email address that signed up for the waitlist. That person will have 3 days to pay the invoice to secure their (or their team) spot in the event. If the invoice is NOT paid, the invoice will be cancelled and they will be dropped back down to the bottom of the waiting list.
At 30 days prior to the event, the 3 day rule on the invoice will NO LONGER BE IN EFFECT. IF a waitlist still exists at that time ALL teams on the waiting list will be emailed and the spot will be given on a first come, first serve basis.
E-mails requesting to be added to waiting lists will NOT be honored.
LEX ARTIS WORKOUT RELEASE POLICY
Lex Artis Event Management reserves the right to release workouts for events whenever we see fit. Our general rule is 30 days prior to an event. If an event has multiple dates it will be 30 days prior to the FIRST weekend
LEX ARTIS PHOTO POLICY
By signing up for an event you are NOT guaranteed to get photos of yourself (or multiple photos of yourself). We do our best to capture the event, but there are 100-200 of you and only one photographer. If guaranteed photos of yourself are a priority you must bring your own photographer to shoot only you from behind the caution tape. This doesn’t change the fact that we do TRY OUR BEST to get photos of everyone competing.
Photos will ALWAYS be posted within one week (7 days) of the event taking place. Photos will be placed into an online album and shared via social media. The link will also be posted to our website. Photos can be downloaded from this link. You are welcome to download and use these photos however you wish.
