Covid 19 Restrictions

Click here to go to resource page  Covid 19 Rules. All officials, athletes and spectators must read what their requirements are at the competition.

President Cup 

All President’s Cup awards are calculated from the highest 4 Sinclair scores from the current calendar year’s sanctioned competitions. There will be awards for Open Age, Masters, Under 20, Open Novice, Under 17 Novice, and Best and Fairest.

The full list of awards can be read in the WTI Competition and Awards Policy which is available at:

To clarify the term "Novice" - this means that at the close of the previous year, the athlete did not reach the lowest grade or had not yet lifted in competition. In the Presidents Cup  novice awards are for Open Age and Under 17.

Sorry for the earlier confusion with putting up older information in this news article which came from a previous version of the competition and awards policy.

Guidelines for Competitors

The expected standard of dress for competitors who are new to Weightlifting competitions is that clothing must not be loose, and that elbows should be clearly visible. These rules allow referees to adjudicate appropriately. If a T-Shirt and shorts are worn, the T-Shirt must be tucked in. Tights may be worn, with or without shorts over the top.

Competitors who are regular participants in competition should wear competition apparel which abides by the International Rules of Weightlifting. This means wearing a lifting costume.

All competitors should be aware that the maximum width of a Weightlifting belt is 12cm.

The competition format will follow the 'ascending bar principle', as normal. This means that competitors choosing the lightest weights go first, and the bar only goes up in weight during the course of the session.

Help is always on hand for new participants but you are advised to contact the competition director - Leo Isaac on mobile 0423767955 or email: prior to the competition. You can also request help via the Weightlifting Tasmania Facebook page.
