Schedule

Schedule TBA

Weigh-Ins

Be prepared with athlete’s first attempt weights, you will need to write first attempts for each event on their weigh-in cards.  Attached is the Powerlifting Plan Template, it was shared with us from the State Powerlifting Director. It is a tool, not required. But is something you can pre-populate a plan with lifts, and serve as a guide for the event.

Final Divisions

Final divisions will be posted after weigh-ins the morning of the event.

Weigh-Ins

Weigh-ins begin at 7:30 am and will conclude at 8:15 am.  Athletes who arrive after 8:15 am will be scratched from competition.  There is a significant amount of work that needs to be completed after weigh-ins and prior to lifting so please arrive as close to 7:30a as possible.  Weigh-ins will take place in the wrestling room off the main gym.

Flight Numbering System

On the schedule, you’ll notice that flights are not labeled as letters anymore but numbers.  The hope is that this will help any confusion between the weight class letter.  Flights are labeled as such “Flight 1-2”.  The 1st number is the platform athletes lift on and the 2nd number is the group of weight classes.

For example, Flight 1-2 will lift on platform 1 and in the 2nd group of weight classes (after 1-1).

Parking

Enter through Door 16a off of Commonwealth Ave and Spruce St.
