Full Power, Push-Pull, and Bench Only are all options for this meet.


Included in the meet fee is entry to one division.

Divisions offered include:

  • Special Olympics
  • Youth (age groups Y1: 8-9, Y2: 10-11, Y3: 12-13)
  • Teen (age groups - T1: 14-15, T2: 16-17, T3: 18-19)
  • Junior (20-23)
  • Masters (40+ in 10 year increments)
  • Open

If you want to compete against other lifters at this meet, consider entering the Open division. Most athletes that enter into only the Masters and Teen divisions end up in a division by themselves. This is a sport of individual achievement, but there is no feeling like having someone push you to be at your best. I have also had Junior only lifters hit higher totals than the winner of the open division!

Additional divisions may be added at a cost of $15 per division. Youth lifters may not add additional divisions per USA Powerlifting rules.

Adding additional divisions simply enables you to win/medal in that division. It is completely optional. Age based State Records (Teen, Junior, Masters) are determined by the lifter's age. You DO NOT need to enter into an age based division to set a State Record.


Singlet; T-shirt (Cotton, Polyester, or a combination of the two with a round neck); knee-high socks for the deadlift; non-supportive underwear; and athletic shoes.

Optional for raw competition: belt; wrist wraps; and neoprene knee sleeves. These items do not need to be on the IPF approved list, but do need to meet IPF specs.

For equipped divisions, only SQ/DL Suits, BP Shirts and Erector Shirts which are IPF approved will be allowed on the platform which includes lifter gear. Please review the list at:
