2021 USA Powerlifting R.C. Classic

Join us for a celebration of good health! One of our USA Powerlifting members and dedicated volunteers, Brendan White, had a loved one experience a traumatic car accident earlier this year. Rebekah spent months in the hospital and is now finally home, but will continue with physical therapy and other treatments. We are hosting this event to celebrate her good health and raise money to help Rebekah Caudle and her family. We hope to have a bake sale, t-shirts for sale, and much more!

COVID-19 Response Updates – All participants and attendees will be required to wear face coverings (masks or shields) to all Calloso events until further notice. This is required by the USA Powerlifting National Office. For more information, please visit the COVID-19 update page here: https://www.usapowerlifting.com/covid-19-update-page/

Registration is open to all USA Powerlifting Members!



Due to COVID-19 restrictions from the USA Powerlifting National Office, this event is currently limited to 56 lifters. If these restrictions are changed, the limit will be increased.


All participants must register online. All registrants must be current USA Powerlifting members. Membership application can be found here.
First Division + T-shirt: $100
Additional Divisions: $20

All entries are non-refundable.


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 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 would like to compete in the Para-Bench or Adaptive Athlete divisions.
