Registration will take place over the course of two rounds.

Round 1 will begin on July 18 for past volunteers who wish to use a meet credit via email request and via email invitations sent to 28 Michigan lifters of the following rankings in 2021-2022:

-Top 5 Male and Female Raw Open Lifters by DOTS Points

-Top 3 Male and Female Raw Teen, Junior, and Masters Lifters by DOTS Points

Round 2 will be open only to lifters who have previously competed in a USA Powerlifting event or are currently registered for one and will begin Saturday, July 30 at 10:00am. Registration will close when the total number of registered lifters reaches 168.

NOTE: If your membership is expired, DON’T renew your membership until November 1st so it will roll into 2023. You must have an existing USAPL ID to register.

All entries are non-refundable.

Meet credits for transfer will only be given if your spot is filled until October 8. All withdrawals after this date are not eligible for transfer or meet credit, as the roster will be finalized and your spot cannot be filled.

DIVISIONS: This meet will be open to Michigan residents in Youth, Teen, Junior, Masters and Open divisions. The Open division is by far the most competitive, and I always encourage athletes to add the division if their age division is less competitive. Athletes can choose to compete Raw, Raw with Wraps, or Equipped. Events offered will be Full Power (3-Lift), Bench Only, and Deadlift Only.

GUEST LIFTERS: Lifters from other states may compete as guests, but will not be eligible for awards. Out-of-state college students or armed forces members may register themselves in their home state OR in their current state. If eligible to use a Michigan address, be sure to update it on your USAPL ID here.

AMERICAN RECORDS: USA Powerlifting American Records can be set at this meet! In order for you to attempt an American Record, you must alert the scoring table when you submit your attempt, so we can prepare to have 3 National referees judge your attempt. American Record totals can only be set if your squat, bench press, and deadlift highest successful attempts were all judged by 3 National referees. To ensure this, please notify the scoring table of your intentions to break an American record total.
