We are adding an additional day to the event to increase the number of participants from 300 to 420!  Please ensure you register for your proper division.  Divisions will not be immediately validated.  Once validation occurs and it determined you registered for the incorrect division, your registration will be refunded.  Meaning, you will need to register again.  It also means that, if your division is now sold out, you will have to be wait listed.

Below is the breakdown of available registrations for each division.

We will close registration on December 1 2017.  This is done so that travel arrangements can be made with confidence in advance.  A schedule will be ready on, or about, December 1 and will be similar to the below very tentative schedule.

*If space allows, we will accommodate coaches that want to lift at the beginning of the event.

The 2018 Texas State Weightlifting Championships and Open will award first, second, and third place prizes for all weight classes across all divisions and awards for the best Male/Female lifter based on Sinclair/Meltzer formulas.  In addition to individual awards, an award will be up for grabs for the best team.  Team event details and awards will be announced soon.

The team entry fee is $100.  The team entry fee will be reduced by $5 for every member of your club that registers to compete by December 1 2017.  If your club registers 20 people your team entry fee is complimentary; however, you must send an email indicating you wish to be involved in the team event.  Each individual must indicate the club they represent at the time of registration.  Please register your team on December 10 2016 or when all of your lifters have signed up, whichever comes first.  Send an email to RobertSirkis@hotmail.com before you register your team.  We will then look at the number of athletes signed up and give you a proper discount code based on that number.

  1. Derek Alford says

    How do you know if you are a Tier I or II Masters Male? Thank you!

  2. How does one become a member of the LWC?

  3. joelslate@yahoo.com says

    Can I still compete, even though I’m a Louisiana resident? I’ve posted a Tier I total.


  4. wymberley@gmail.com says

    I can’t get the link to work to sign up.!!

  5. Grant Peterson says

    I registered when event opened. No confirmation email. Tier 1 Open Male. After I registered it showed that it was successful. How do I confirm this? I also wasn’t sure about the space that stated total. I placed $90.00 there. Is this correct?


    • Bobby Sirkis says

      You are confirmed. Total is your announced total for the event. Aka, what total you want everyone to know you can do for the event.

      • Grant Peterson says

        Talked to our coach and he clarified the Total. Can you please change that $90.00 to 112? Thanks!

      • Jeff Belyeu says

        I think I have the same question as Grant. I believe I signed up, but did not get a confirmation email. Should there have been an email? Or is there a place to verify ourselves (so we don’t bug you), Bobby?

        • Bobby Sirkis says

          You should have received an confirmation, but I did notice you on the list. So this is your confirmation. Also, feel free to bug me.

  6. Having trouble logging in to register. Email & usaw# not working.

  7. brandon.soukup@yahoo.com says

    How do I register for Master male wait list?

    • Bobby Sirkis says

      There are a few ways.

      1 – Sign up as an Open lifter. You will be entered into the event in the open category. If a masters spot opens up we will move you. If not, you will lift as an open.

      2 – Sign up for the Paid Waitlist. If a spot opens we will enter you in the event.

      3 – Sign up fro the Non-Paid Waitlist. If a spot opens up we will request you complete registration within 24 hours.
