When we're new to weightlifting often we think that we must "be ready" to do a competition. But really, we need to compete in order to learn the process, find our blind spots and improve at competing. If you compete multiple times before you feel you're ready you'll improve in all aspects. Then at the big meet... you'll kill it!
The purpose of the Weightlifting League is to provide more opportunities for athletes to compete.
You'll have a blast because we've created a non-intimidating environment in order to learn and gain valuable competition experience.
You will know when meets are coming up because we have a consistent and projected competition schedule. That allows easy planning.
You'll have new motivation in the gym due to having something more to train for then just training...
