January 7th, 2017 - Upper Palmetto YMCA, 857 Promenade Walk, Fort Mill, SC 29708
This is the third SC State Championship with two platforms and we are planning to register 90 to 100 lifters.
Due to a change in our USA Powerlifting National rules, American Records can only be set at State, Regional, National and IPF meets.
As of 11/10/16 there are 40 lifters on the roster. 23 from SC, 13 NC, 2 VA and 1 each from GA and FL- 9 women and 31 men. More than half the lifters are 23 years of age and younger. This bodes well for the future of powerlifting in the Carolinas.
There is still time to set up a training cycle and beat your own PRs on the platform!
As always these meets rely on our volunteers, particularly spotters and loaders who are fundamental to a successful meet. If you are not lifting, or are looking to get into powerlifting please volunteer as a spotter/loader. It is tough work but rewarding in terms of meeting lifters, watching form and for new lifters, learning the referees commands and how a powerlifting meet proceeds.
