2017 Roots Spring Oly Meet!

Greetings weightlifters and coaches!

I hope you are having a great winter, enjoying the warm weather and lifting well. I want to invite you to our upcoming 2017 Roots Spring Weightlifting Meet on April 8th!

The Spring meet will have two sessions for men and women each. Sessions will be arranged by previous best or estimated total. Registration deadline is midnight April 1st

This meet will proceed like a sanctioned USAW meet where the bar will only get heavier during the competition. The purpose of this process is to help the lifter and coach gain valuable experience of counting attempts and lifting in a competition weightlifting environment. If your goal is to compete in a USAW sanctioned meet, this is a great first meet for you! Even if you have competed on the platform before, this meet is great to hone your competition skills.
This meet will not be USAW sanctioned, so neither a singlet nor a USAW membership is required. We will compete in Kgs. with a minimum of 1 Kg. weight increase. Warmup weights will be in Lbs. We will use the Sinclair Coefficient to score the flights. All other USAW rules will apply.

Finally, if you are interested in helping volunteer at this meet, please let me know. We are always looking for judges and loaders!
