About the Competition:

This will be a raw & equipped meet (for competition standards, please refer to the USA Powerlifting guidelines here). Each participant will go through the squat, bench, and deadlift if they choose to register for the full competition. We will also offer additional divisions (masters, juniors, push / pull, bench-only) for an additional cost of $30 per registration.

Medals will be provided to the top 3 competitors in their respective divisions. The final schedule will be determined once we get a sense of what weight classes are most registered to ensure the smoothest possible experience for all competitors.

Rules & Bylaws can be found here, and are strongly encouraged to be reviewed prior to competition. All equipment (such as belts, wrist-wraps, shoes, and attire) that follows the USA Powerlifting equipment specifications will be allowed. USA Powerlifting equipment specifications can be found here.

Please note: as this is a USA Powerlifting competition sanctioned by USA Powerlifting, there will be drug-testing at this meet.

Please make sure you bring your current USA Powerlifting Membership Card and ID with you to this meet. We will NOT be selling USA Powerlifting memberships, so please make sure they are current / renewed prior to attending this competition. You may purchase / renew your USA Powerlifting Membership here.

Questions? Feel free to email us at, and a staff member will be able to help you out.

Prospective Schedule will be released soon! This will be a two platform meet, and the schedule will be made reflecting the distribution of weight classes of those who registered. We ask that you keep your weekend available in case of any changes.
