Important info for Lifters at this meet

  • 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!

    All participants must be current USA Powerlifting members. (Register online:

  • American Records can be set at this meet.

  • Minimum 10% of participants will be drug tested by urinalysis.

  • All participants must pre-register and submit payment by August 1st, 2020. Registration will close on this date, or when the meet reaches 120 lifters entered, whichever comes first.

  • Registration is open to all USA Powerlifting members. There is no residency requirement or qualifying meet required. Youth lifters are welcome to enter!


    Refund Policy: Lifters can receive an entry to another powerlifting meet run by Brinker Powerlifting. If transferring registration to this meet from a local meet, lifters will be required to pay the difference between the cost of this meet and their original meet.

  • Cost to enter: $85

  • Additional divisions: $20

  • Prize Money:
    Any division regardless of age group (raw full, push pull, etc) with at least 20 entries will have a prize of $500 dollars for the best Male and Female lifter by IPF Points. Prize money will be presented after drug test results have returned clean. A lifter failing a drug test for any reason would forfeit any prize money won.

  • Awards:

  • Awards will be given to the top three in each weight class and division at the end of each day.
