New Co-Chair in 2021

In the month of March we typically look forward to spring which represents bouncing, start of something new, new beginnings, progress, blossoming of new things, birth, new life and business. The USA Powerlifting Wisconsin team is excited to announce our newest team member, Jordan Whipple as co-chair.   Jordan and Tonya, current state chair, are working together to maintain our awesome competition structure for the members, current and future.  Please enjoy learning a bit more about Jordan . 

Jordan has been a USA Powerlifting (USAPL) member and athlete since 2012 and like so many in our state, she started in the Wisconsin High School Powerlifting Association (WHSPA).  In 2018 she became a certified USA Powerlifting official and has been very active at numerous competitions in all of the various duties, including meet director of the 2019 WHSPA State Championship 500+ athlete sanctioned USA Powerlifting competition spanning five platforms and 2.5 days. In her role as the meet director she has worked closely with not only Tonya but many coaches and volunteers from all across the state and saw first-hand just how much of an impact the powerlifting community has on so many people across the state. She loves being able to introduce new lifters to USAPL and wants to continue to work and build the USAPL community here in Wisconsin and beyond.

To quote Jordan ‘I have fallen in love with the opportunities and community USAPL has introduced me to and want to share that passion with others. I look forward to the co-chair role, working with Tonya and to learn more about the organization and also to give back at a higher level to a sport that has given me so much.’

Please welcome Jordan as the new co-chair of USA Powerlifting Wisconsin.

’19 WI State Championship Reg Link

You’ve been waiting for this…

This USA Powerlifting sanctioned competition is hosted by the Racine Horlick High School Powerlifting Team with myself as the event director.  Once completing registration you are agreeing to the rules and standards of USA Powerlifting and will not request a refund for any reason.

Please read the criteria carefully before proceeding to registration even if you have read most of it last night or today. This promises to be another great USA Powerlifting event in our state – WI State Championship for Juniors, Open and Master competitors of either ‘equipped’ or ‘raw’ lifting style in traditional 3-lift competition and/or bench-press only.  New this year, meet t-shirt included in the main entry fee.

Registration is available to current experienced USA Powerlifting members residing in WI and have the same information on their USA Powerlifting membership.  WI members MUST have a total from a sanctioned USA Powerlifting competition on or after June 1, 2017.  Check our calendar for two (2) competitions in the state on Jan. 26th where rookies (from any state) are encouraged to register for.

There will be kilos on the competition platforms with pounds in the warmup area. We will weigh all competitors in kilos from 7:00 – 8:30 AM CST on competition day.

4-5 competition platforms (Yes, it’s USA Powerlifting WI)

One session, get in early and move fast to get you back home quicker.
