REGISTRATION OPENS AUGUST 12 AT 10:00AM

Registration:

To register for this event, you must have posted a previous USA Powerlifting total from any year. You will be required to provide your profile on the USAPL lifter database.

All participants must register online. All registrants must be current USA Powerlifting members. Membership application can be found here.
First Division + T-shirt: $120
Additional Divisions: $20

All entries are non-refundable.

Divisions:

The age divisions offered for this meet will be Youth (8-14), Teen (14-19), Junior (20-23), Master (40+) and Open divisions.

NOTE: The Open division is by far the most competitive. I highly recommend registering for the Open division, even if you are also able to register in another age division. Many athletes will register in both to have a larger group of competitors.

Events:

Events offered will be 3-Lift, Push-Pull and Bench-Only. You may lift in either the raw, raw with wraps, or equipped (single-ply) divisions. Please contact the meet director if you wish to compete in Para-Bench or Adaptive Athlete divisions.
