It’s time for the second OWA Again Faster Club Challenge of the 2015-2016 season! JustLift will again be taking part and inviting all other OWA clubs to join us that need a venue with officials. This competition is open to all registered OWA clubs and their registered lifters. An OWA “General” athlete membership ($50) is required to participate. Athletes who plan on competing at any meet with a qualifying standard, the JR championships, out-of-province, or Nationally/Internationally need an OWA “Elite” athlete membership ($80).

For the 2015-2016 season, the Again Faster Club Challenge Series will consist of Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter Competitions (4 in total).

Competition Registration:
JustLift Members: $10/athlete payable to JustLift, we’ll take care of the team registration with the OWA.

The results of each team’s best 10 lifters will be used to determine a team winner across all participating clubs at multiple locations across Ontario. Lifters will be ranked according to their age and bodyweight categories. A progressive scoring system that awards greater points to the younger age categories will be used. This is to encourage the participation of younger lifters without precluding other age groups. There is no limit to the number of athletes per team. The winning team will receive a prize for their club from the OWA.

Cumulative points will be kept for the entirety of the Hybrid Competitive season and a banner will be awarded to the top scoring team.

Age groups contested are:

Juvenille (15 and under, born 2000 or later)

Youth (17 and under, born 1998 or later)

Junior (20 and under, born 1995 or later)

Senior/Master (20+, born 1994 or earlier)

IWF rules dictate that age groups are determined by Year of Birth only, for example, anyone born in 1995 is a Junior for 2015 and becomes a Senior on Jan 1, 2016, regardless of their Date of Birth.

The additional Juvenille/Youth Bodyweight categories will also be contested (M46, M50, M94+, W44, W69+).

This competition is not subject to doping control.
