THE EMPIRE GAMES FAQS
HOW DID THE EMPIRE GAMES START?
The Empire Games were born amidst the 2020 Covid Lockdown Restrictions out of desperation for Connection + continuing Momentum for our Crew at the time.
As you would have experienced yourself during this time, the feeling of loneliness, isolation + helplessness, we too felt it + saw our Crew suffering because of it.
The Empire Games were designed to include any of our Crew at every entry level possible, a Team Competition of all Team Competitions – an opportunity to bring our Crew back together + give them something to look forward to!
Since then, The Empire Games have grown into one of the biggest Competitions at Empire which sees all walks of life teaming up; from Grandma + Granddad to Juniors, Mums, Dads, Powerlifters + Strong(wo)man.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Empire Games are comprised of 16 Events that are announced over the months leading up to Game Day. What will be announced are the Events, but Teams are not told how the Event will run, nominated weights, the Event Sequence or how each Event will be scored; until Game Day.
When Teams arrive onsite on Game Day, all Teams will be told the Event Sequence, Scoring etc at the same time + be given 10 minutes to select the appropriate Team Member to complete that Event.
HOW DO THE GAMES WORK?
The Empire Games are broken into 4 Key Stages, with 4 Events within each Stage.
A maximum of 1 Event per Stage is to be completed by a Single Team Member. I.E.; 1 Team Member cannot complete more than 1 Event per Stage, all Team Members must be allocated an Event each.
|1||STRENGTH EVENT 1||CONDITIONING EVENT 1||AGILITY EVENT 1||ENDURANCE EVENT 1|
|2||STRENGTH EVENT 2||CONDITIONING EVENT 2||AGILITY EVENT 2||ENDURANCE EVENT 2|
|3||STRENGTH EVENT 3||CONDITIONING EVENT 3||AGILITY EVENT 3||ENDURANCE EVENT 3|
|4||STRENGTH EVENT 4||CONDITIONING EVENT 4||AGILITY EVENT 4||ENDURANCE EVENT 4|
Events will be scored across all Teams, with each Team’s Stage Scores tallied at the end of the Games Day. In the event of a Tie-Breaker, Teams who equal the same point score at the end of Games Day 1, will be invited back onsite at for the Unparalleled Tie Breaker Event for Poll Position.
BUILDING YOUR TEAM
Entry into the Games is with a Team of 4 People.
Your Team will participate in each event, side by side, with 1 or 2 other Teams of 4 until all Stages & Events are completed.
All Teams will be allocated points per Event within each Stage of the Games.
When selecting Team Members, you want to look for people who are:
- Great Team Players
- Have strengths in areas of the Gym that perhaps you don’t
- People you enjoy the company of
- People who enjoy having a good time + meeting new people!
WHAT EVENTS DO WE PREPARE FOR?
As the Events are announced in the lead up to Games Day, this will allow for a reasonable amount of general preparation for all participants.
Empire Games Events usually have a little flavor for:
- Cardio Kings
- Footy Lads + Dads
- Crossfit Queens
- + the list goes on!
Every Event selected are added to each Stage with consideration for every entry level, with modifications where required.
This provides a fair playing field for all Participants to encourage enhanced Team Work strategizing, opposed to Egocentric participation – Leave Your Egos Behind.
