USA Powerlifting Team Cup Challenge (WA-2019-06)
Tacoma Strength 2354 Jefferson Ave, Tacoma, WA
This is a USA Powerlifting Sanctioned event. All rules of a regular Full Powerlifting event will apply in regards to equipment, uniform and setting records. This event is designed to showcase the TEAM. In regular powerlifting events, the athletes focus is on themselves and how they place related to everyone else in their class. This event is about working together as a team against other teams.
This event offers only a RAW division.
This is a drug tested event. 10% of the lifters will be drug tested.
Weigh in: 8am-9:30am
Lifting begins at 10am.
Teams are made up of 3 lifters:
- Open may consist of 3 of any age male person
- Open may consist of 3 of any age female person
- Open Mixed may consist of any combination of sex of lifters
- Junior/Teen may consist of 3 of either sex or all female or all male
- Masters (40+) may consist of 3 of any age male person
- Masters (40+) may consist of 3 of any age female person
- Masters (40+) Mixed may consist of any combination of sex of lifters
- Each team may have 1 reserve lifter in case of injury
Each lifter gets 3 attempts of ONE of the movements (squat, bench, deadlift).
This means one person will squat all three attempts. A separate person will Bench all three attempts. And a third person will deadlift all three attempts.
The reserve lifter may lift in the event of a team member becoming injured prior to stepping on the platform. This lifter may only lift one of the movements (squat, bench or deadlift).
If a team consists of an open age group lifter (24-39), that team will be scored with the open teams (this includes the reserve lifter).
For tactical purposes, you will have the opportunity to change the 3rd attempt of each movement. This is normally done in a full powerlifting event in only the deadlift and in a bench press only event. But in this situation, each movement will be as if it’s a single lift event.
Scoring is done by the Wilks formula. Each lifter has a score assigned to their best successful lift (done by the computer). The 3 best scores (one squat, one bench and one deadlift) for the team are added together to make the total score for the team. The highest Wilks score wins.
The top 3 teams in each division will be given awards.
Each team member will receive a free t-shirt with registration.
Registration fee per lifter is $50.
Ages 8-100+ are eligible to participate. New lifters are welcome.
Each individual will register separately, indicating the names of their team mates on the registration. Each team MUST consist of a minimum of 3 and maximum of 4 (one reserve) members. The reserve member does not pay a registration fee.
Athletes may register any time after registration opens. If you don’t have a name for your team at the time of registration, each team will be responsible for providing a Team Name up to 7 days before the event.
The deadline to register is May 25th, 2019
