Grab a partner, the Team Series will use pairs.
The 2017 CrossFit Team Series, presented by Compex, has a new format. The competition is simpler, but just like an elegant couplet, that doesn’t mean it will be any easier. Two women, two men or a man and a woman are allowed. Age groups have been added for all divisions. 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.
The series will take place over two consecutive weeks, starting in late September.
PAIR UP AND WORK OUT
Two sets of partner workouts will be released with a live announcement on Wednesday, Sept. 20, and Wednesday, Sept. 27. In Week 1, pairs will have until Monday, Sept. 25, to complete the workouts and submit their scores. The deadline for Week 2 will be Monday, Oct. 2. This means pairs have five days to complete the workouts once they are released.
Pairs 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.
This year, the competition will offer the same age groups as the Open: All, 14-15, 16-17, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59 and 60+.
If two people of different age groups team up, they’ll be listed in the most competitive age group. For example, if two athletes aged 36 and 61 team up, they’ll go in All Ages and 35-39. If two teenagers aged 17 and 14 team up, they’ll go in All Ages and 16-17. If a teenager and a masters athlete team up, they’ll only go in All Ages.
Also like the CrossFit Games Open, pairs can perform the events in front of a judge at a participating affiliate or film their performances and submit a link to the video on YouTube with each score.
The prize amounts listed below are for teams and not payable to each participant on a team.
