****ROSTER INFORMATION: Here is the roster****  Sessions and Flights are posted! Weigh ins will be done by lot number. Lot numbers will be added to the roster closer to the meet.

 

This USA Powerlifting meet was created specifically for CrossFitters and first-time competitors who want to set new personal records in the squat, bench, and deadlift. Of course, non-CrossFitters and more experienced lifters are welcome too!

This meet is also a fundraiser for local breast cancer patients that are in need of financial assistance while undergoing treatment. Most of us have all been affected by this disease or know someone whose life has been impacted or lost due to it. You can help by volunteering your time at the event, donating a service or goods for the silent auction, and making a cash donation at the event. Contact Lara Sturm to volunteer or donate an item: lara@crossfit-johnscreek.com

Venue: CrossFit Chattahoochee, 3379 Buford Highway, Duluth GA 30022. Click here for directions

A Novice Division (1st time competing in USA Powerlifting) will be available within these divisions as well.  There will be divisions for all age groups including Youth, Teen, Junior, and Masters. All meet fees are non-refundable.
