Spring Olympic Weightlifting Meet Sign-ups!
It’s that time of year again! For the third consecutive year, Roots will host its Spring Olympic Weightlifting Meet in just over five weeks.
Last year we had 3 meets and almost 150 lifters grace our platforms. This year promises to be even better as we have some new changes in store. Here is the schedule for the upcoming year:
Roots Spring Meet – April 18th – Set flights and reordered flights
Roots Summer Meet – August 8th – Set flights and reordered flights
Roots Fall Meet – November 21st – Sanctioned USAW meet!
The Spring and Summer meet will have two divisions for men and women each: a set order flight and a re-ordered flight.
A set flight is like we usually do. The set flight does not change the order of lifters during the competition. This is beneficial to new competitors as it is less stressful since you don’t have to worry about when you will lift.
The reordered flight will proceed like a sanctioned USAW meet where the bar will only get heavier during the competition. The purpose of this process is to help the lifter and coach gain valuable experience of counting attempts and lifting in a competition weightlifting environment. If your goal is to compete in USAW sanctioned meet, this is a great option for you!
These first two meets will not be USAW sanctioned, so a singlet is not required. We will compete in Lbs. and not Kg’s with a minimum of 2.5 Lb. weight jumps. The Sinclair Coefficient will be used to score the flights. All other USAW rules will apply.
