- Only state members within the Region can compete in their designated Regionals
- Regionals are recognized as a National level meet with only National or higher referees permitted to officiate as Chief Referees. State Referees can officiate as side referees although we should strive for 100% National Referees in all of the chairs.
- National Referees in all of the chairs will be mandatory for 2020 Regionals.
- A 3-member Jury of National Referees (with at least 2 year’s active experience as a National referee) and/or IPF Referees is mandatory.
- American Records can be set at Regionals.
- Regionals will serve as qualifiers for Raw Nationals and Open Nationals – only open and age divisions are allowed. Only full meet, 3-lift competition is allowed.
- Top 3 placings in any division that requires a qualifying total at Nationals will automatically qualify for that same division at Nationals, regardless of whether they meet the qualifying total or not.
- Top 5 Open placings of the previous year’s Nationals can compete at Regionals only as a guest lifter in the division(s) that they medaled in. Competing as a guest lifter is not necessary if they want to compete in another division that they are currently eligible for.
- To compete at a Regional meet, the lifter must have a current membership with USA Powerlifting and have competed in at least one USA Powerlifting sanctioned meet since January 1 of the previous year.
- The registration fee for all 2019 Regional events will be $125. Extra fees and add-ons are at the discretion of the meet director.
