The thrill and excitement of competition
A set goal to focus on
Opportunity to compare themselves to lifters around the nation
A way to test and re-test their abilities over time
An experience they can tell stories about the rest of their life
What to expect at a competition
Each lifter will be performing the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk (just like in practices).
The coach and lifter agree upon weights that are appropriate for their individual strength and skill.
Three judges watch to verify good technique is used.
Teammates warm-up together, cheer for each other, and support through success and failure.
Awards are presented to lifters by age and weight class categories.
