“This will be the best team year ever.” —Chase Ingraham, CrossFit Games commentator

In 2015, four-time CrossFit Games champion Rich Froning Jr. went team, as did seven-time CrossFit Games competitor Jason Khalipa. Back-to-back champion Ute CrossFit is returning from a one-year hiatus, and 2014 Affiliate Cup winner CrossFit Invictus is back to defend its spot on the podium. A handful of other strong teams will also make a push for the hardware at the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games.

“This year will be the year that teams get showcased just as much as the individuals. It’s going to be a great year,” Ingraham continued while commentating at the 2015 California Regional.

NorCal CrossFit—as expected—locked up the team competition in Del Mar, California, by winning four of seven events and setting two event records, but the rest of the regional was up in the air. Perennial regional and Games teams CrossFit 808, CrossFit Kinnick, CrossFit Invictus, Diablo CrossFit, CrossFit CSA, CrossFit Costa Mesa and new team CrossFit Foothill were fighting for the other four spots.

This documentary offers an in-depth look at the California Regional team competition that produced five veteran groups that are hoping to drink champagne from the Affiliate Cup.
