Sunday 8.23.15 – CrossFit Team Series
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.
It’s similar to the CrossFit Open, where the elite will win, but everyone and anyone can sign up and see how they compare with the elite on a worldwide leaderboard. Compete against another gym, or with another team at The Compound, just have fun!
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.
To Do List:
1. Find three teammates.
2. Come back to Games.CrossFit.com between Aug. 18 and Sept. 8 to register your team.
3. Make sure all teammates accept your email invites.
At The Compound, we have people signing up on the board. Obviously we need an equal number of men and women and it may help to create a team of people that workout at the same time you do!
Continue to sign up on the board and then Phillip and I will help come up with teams.
Let’s have some competitive fun!
