Be a Mentor at the Next “Rookie” Event

We need your help! The “Rookie” events are special events where we pair brand new lifters with Mentors during their very first USA Powerlifting event. It’s designed to reduce some of the anxiety of competing for the first time.

Keep an eye out for our next “Rookie” events. If you can help out in any way, please complete this form. I will send out emails to all my volunteers a few weeks before the event. Thank you for your continued involvement in Washington USA Powerlifting!

I want to Volunteer

Welcome to the New WA State USA Powerlifting Webpage!

We are proud to announce the launch of the new Washington State USA Powerlifting Website!

Why change? For starters, converting to WordPress makes it a whole lot easier on your volunteer webmaster :-) WordPress also offers improved calendar functionality, more possibilities for special features and social media integration, and better mobile web compatibility.

The site looks bare-bones for now, but soon you will see the photos and graphics you are accustomed to (along with a few new features). Sarah Bohlen is the webmaster for this site; if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, please send an email to
