It’s that time again! We will be hosting a joint Club Competition for the members of JustLift, Ottawa Elite, and Canuck Athletics.
This meet will be sanctioned by the OWA and lifters will be able to qualify for Ontario Provincials at this meet.
We encourage all of our members to participate, especially those who have not competed before. This will give you a better understanding of how the sport of weightlifting is contested. This meet will also replace the normal Saturday training time.
All lifters must be registered members with the OWA with their respective clubs. If you are a new lifter and this is your first time registering with the OWA, a half-year membership is available after Dec. 1 for $30 (http://ontarioweightlifting.ca/service.htm). A participation membership is $20. Participants are not eligible for ranking or qualification. Registration with the OWA is separate from the competition.
Athlete Entry Fee is $10 payable at weigh-in.
Athlete Registration deadline is Feb 18. Late registration fee is $20. Don’t delay!
Weigh-in will begin at 9am, with lifting starting at 11am. Start list and other information to be posted on https://www.justlift.ca. This competition will NOT be subject to doping control (unable to qualify for Nationals).
Free admission for spectators! If you’re curious to see what a weightlifting competition is like, make sure you come check it out! Come cheer on some of Ottawa’s most powerful athletes!
