powerlifting Meet very frequently asked questionsAre there any requirements to compete?
All USA Powerlifting meets require that competitors are USA Powerlifting members. You can purchase your annual membership on their website Membership is usually not required at the time of registration, but will need to be sent to the meet director at least a week before the competition date.
I am a first time competitor, is there anything I need to know before registering?
Our meets fill up FAST. Make sure to set a timer on your phone to register right when it opens to secure your spot! Other than that, you can refer to this first time lifter guide on the USA Powerlifting website: https://www.usapowerlifting.com/lifters-corner/new-lifter-tips/
Also review the rulebook here: https://www.usapowerlifting.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/USAPL-Rulebook-v2021.1.pdf
We also recommend working with a powerlifting coach who knows the rules for USAPL well to help you through your meet prep. If you do not have one, feel free to reach out to us!
I registered for a meet but I cannot compete anymore, can I get a refund?
There are no refunds issued. Once you click the submit button on the registration form, you accept that your registration fees will be forfeited if you cannot make it to the competition for any reason.
I missed the registration and now the meet is full. Is there anything I can do to get in?
Unfortunately once our meets are full, there is little that we can do. Sometimes there may be a waitlist, but chances of getting into the meet from the waitlist are NOT guaranteed regardless of what number you are on the waitlist.
Do you do any meets other than USAPL?
No. USAPL only
Is your apparel approved to be worn at USA Powerlifting meets?
- Yes, since we are affiliated with USA Powerlifting, any WARCAT Shirts or SInglets are allowed to be worn at the platform.
