BAND OF SAVAGES - Let's go!
Maybe some new goals for 2023 :)
The goal of the BAND OF SAVAGES is to find and reward those who have dedicated themselves to the pursuit of elite, well rounded fitness.
There are 11 categories that hold different benchmarks.
New LEVELED Band of Savages
See all new Standards at bottom of post!
The BOS has been fantastic, BUT was not seen as realistic for most causing it to fizzle out! I have faith that we will see MORE FULL SAVAGES, but to increase effectiveness and participation....
I HAVE IMPROVED THE BAND OF SAVAGES TO INCLUDE 3 LEVELS OF FITNESS
Gold (these standards are the same as original)
To enter the “Band of Savages” you must obtain 30+ of the 51 benchmarks and at least 1 in each of the 11 categories EXCEPT gymnastic skill. This is meant to be TOUGH and reward the dedicated, LONG TERM pursuit of well rounded fitness
There are THREE levels to obtain in the BOS in each test and overall. BRONZE, SILVER, and GOLD.
to achieve the BOS BRONZE, you must have 30 or more of the BRONZE Standards
to achieve the BOS SILVER, you must have 30 or more of the SILVER Standards
to achieve the BOS GOLD, you must have 30 or more of the GOLD Standards
All movements and standards are held to COMPLETE standard
Performance measures must have been accomplished within last 24 months
Performance measures must be logged on the official “Band of Savages” scorecard and then your scorecard validated by a coach to enter the BOS.
“Band of Savages” is based on the honor system, but true savages never lie
Once you are in, you are in. This is a lifetime membership to the BOS. However, a true savage knows when they are no longer a savage and removes themselves
Open are under 40 years of age, Masters are 40+ years of age, Legends are 55+ years of age
YOU SHALL BE REWARDED AND RECOGNIZED
GOLD Members will receive a picture on the Wall of Savages, a Band of Savages tee shirt, respect from their peers, and a lifetime of honor
SILVER Members will a custom BOS Mug and Public recognition
BRONZE Members will custom BOS Sticker and Public recognition
