The CrossFit competition year doesn’t end with the CrossFit Games. While the Games are in the offseason, CrossFit will host the CrossFit Team Series.
The two-part series starts in early September, and ends in mid October. The first set of workouts will be released Sept. 8, and the second and final set of workouts will be released Oct. 6.
In the Team Series, any two men and two women can form a team. You and your teammates don’t have to train at the same affiliate or even live in the same state or country. You do have to complete all of the Team Series workouts together, though.
This freedom led to several incredible rosters in 2014. Rich Froning, Sam Briggs, Jason Khalipa, and Julie Foucher formed the powerhouse team Rogue Fitness Black, only to be beaten by Ben Smith's Team Reebok East.
Affiliates also put forward teams that challenged the Games elite, earning spots in the top 10 and taking home part of the $151,000 prize purse. The Team Series proved to be a lot like the CrossFit Invitational, only anyone could sign up and compete with the world's fittest.
In 2015, teams will be able to choose between the Rx'd and scaled version of each workout. Choosing scaled for one workout will not prevent a team from doing the next workout as prescribed.
Teenagers (14-17) and Masters (40+) will be included, as well.
Registration begins on Aug. 18 at Games.CrossFit.com. Send your team captain to the site to register the team. As part of the process, the captain will pay and send email invites to their teammates.
Registration costs $80 for all teams except those that are sponsored. Sponsored teams pay $500.
