THE ROOKIE RUMBLE 2023
Saturday April 8th – Crossfit Maven, Rochester, MI
Saturday April 15th – CrossFit Frostbite, Farmington, MI
Saturday April 15th – CrossFit Cornerstone, Cincinnati, OH
Are you new to all of this functional movement performed at high intensity? Have you ever done a competition before? Are you coming off your very first Open? Well, this event is for you!
This will be a partner event with two divisions:
“Full Rookie” Division. Two “Rookies” get together and form a team. This can be male-male or female-female.
“Pro-Am” Division. This is where two people form a team where one person has been around the block and has more experience, but the other person is fairly new to all of this stuff. (again, male-male or female-female teams ONLY)
The big question becomes…what do we define as a rookie?
“Am I a Rookie?” – SEE BELOW!
Programming will be written to be challenging, but approachable.
T-shirts are included in the price of registration. Registration Closes two weeks prior or when the event sells out (whichever comes first).
There will be one written movement standard for this event, but scaling will be allowed. If you do scale a movement your team is just eliminated from prizes.
LEX ARTIS SCALING POLICY
Lex Artis events will have ONE WRITTEN STANDARD for an event. If you perform the workout as we have it written in the full event write up, you have competed as prescribed.
Unless we state otherwise, WE ALLOW SCALING AT ANY OF OUR EVENTS! Athletes can choose to scale ANY MOVEMENT, ANY REP COUNT, ANY WEIGHT to meet their own personal abilities. Once you scale any part of the written workout your score will be entered into the leaderboard as a “scaled” score and it will fall below any team’s score that did that workout (scored part of a workout) as prescribed. We will still judge you on your new standard, we will still keep your score, and it will still show up on the leaderboard. You will not however be eligible for the podium. If you only scale one scored part of one workout, that is the ONLY score that will show up on the leaderboard as “scaled”, all others will show that you did them as prescribed.
IF you choose to scale a workout or part of a workout, YOU MUST LET YOUR JUDGE KNOW PRIOR TO STARTING THE WORKOUT. You do not need to email us days or weeks ahead of time letting us know (this can be 100% a gametime decision.

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.
