The Sheraton North Houston at George Bush Intercontinental is offering our group a reduced rate of $99/night for up to quadruple occupancy!  There is no fee for parking and a complimentary airport shuttle from George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH).  Make your reservation by clicking here.

This will be another 3 day event and we will be able to accommodate up to 420 athletes!  Please ensure you register for your proper division.  Divisions will not be immediately validated.  After validation occurs, and you have registered for the wrong 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 Tier 1/2 registrations for each division.  All remaining registrations will be converted to the Open division.  We will reassign individuals to the correct division if we are able to fit with in our schedule.

Open Master U20 (Yth/Jr)
Male 75 75 60
Female 75 75 60
Total 150 150 120

Please see below chart to assist in determining the proper category.

Birth Year = ANY Birth Year <1984 Birth Year >2000
Open Yes Yes Yes
Master No Yes No
Junior No No Yes
Youth No No Yes

We will close registration on December 1 2018.  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 2019 Texas State Weightlifting Championships and Open will award first, second, and third place prizes for all weight categories across all divisions and awards for the best Male/Female lifter based on your ROBI score (the closer you get to your world record, the more points you will get).  In addition to individual awards, an award will be up for grabs for the best team.  Masters will use Sinclair/Meltzer.

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 2018.  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 2018 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.

    How do i sign up for the state meet? and how do i know what tier im in

    • Bobby Sirkis says

      Hello – I just sent you an email, but I didn’t have your email address when setting up accounts. You know have a tier 1 account and can log in and register for the event.


  2. Hi there – I believe I registered but I never received a confirmation email. Can you tell me whether or not I show up as a registered female athlete? Thanks!

  3. Where on the site can I find the times that my competitor is lifting? (Houston state meet next weekend.)
