We are in the process of finalizing our upcoming schedule for USA Powerlifting in the Carolinas. The Palmetto Powerlifting Classic will be held at Crossfit Wappoo in beautiful Charleston, SC on August 13, 2016. This will once again be a single platform event and we will be limiting the number of competitors to the first 60 entries received. Entry forms can now be downloaded from the Events page.
North Carolina will be hosting events in July and later in November of this year.
USA Powerlifting will be implimenting Regional Championships starting this year as a stepping stone for qualification to Nationals. We live in the Southeast region, consisting of North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee and Florida. All Regional competitions will be held in October or November. With this said, all States must move their State Championships to the first part of the year.
Our State Championship will move from its current month of December and will now be held on January 7th. Unfortunatly, we will not have a State Championship in 2016, but will be held less than a month later in 2017. This will be a two platform meet and we will accept the first 100 entries received.
The Battle on the Border will continue to be held around the same time as usual. It will be held in Ft. Mill, South Carolina for the second year in a row. More information to come.
