    Is there a minimum entry total?

  2. Timothy Wong says:

    I have not competed in weightlifting before. Will I still be able to compete in the Novice session?


    • zachtrident says:

      Hi Tim, Yes you can definitely still compete in the Novice session. It is the perfect opportunity for you to be introduced to competing in the sport!

  3. Sean says:

    Is there women’s novice masters in this?

    • zachtrident says:

      Hi Sean, the masters compete in the same sessions as everybody else. There are typically a few masters lifters in each session.

  4. Richard says:

    I have previously competed in one weightlifting competition before. If I decide to compete as a novice, can my total be used to qualify for national level events?

    • zachtrident says:

      Hi Richard, in order to qualify for national level events you must compete in the Open sessions. This is due to the Open sessions requiring USAW memberships, singlets, etc. If you would like to compete in the men’s Open session, I would recommend registering ASAP as spots are almost sold out.

      If you have any other questions, just let us know!
