Further Rules and Details

How each division is scored/awarded will be determined by the number of lifters in each division. Note that there are separate divisions within the Women’s Raw, Women’s Equipped, Men’s Raw and Men’s Equipped categories. The awards will breakdown as follows:

Individual Awards

All Open Divisions:

  • 1st – 5th in each weight class

All Age Divisions:

  • 1-7 lifters in a division
    – 1st-5th by wilks formula
  • 8-13 lifters in a division
    – 1st-5th for Lightweight by wilks formula
    – 1st-5th for Heavyweight by wilks formula
  • 14-19 lifters in a division
    – 1st-5th for Lightweight by wilks formula
    – 1st-5th for Middleweight by wilks formula
    – 1st-5th for Heavyweight by wilks formula
  • 20 or more lifters in a division
    – 1st-5th for each weight class in that division

Note: When scoring by formula:

  • Masters will use McCulloch Age Coefficient and Wilks Formula
  • Teens will use Foster Age Coefficient and Wilks Formula
  • All other age categories (open & junior) will just use the Wilks Formula
  • Youth and Special Olympics lifters will be awarded 1st – 5th for each weight class but will not be eligible to earn team points.

For Teen and Masters divisions, age categories will be separated before weight class scoring occurs. Example of breakdown:

7 Masters I Lifters
6 Masters II Lifters
4 Masters III Lifters
3 Masters IV Lifter

Total of 20 lifters.

Because there are different age categories, instead of scoring by weight class, the scoring divisions will be broken down like this:

Masters I – 1st-5th by McCulloch Age Coefficient and Wilks Formula
Masters II, III & IV – 1st-5th Lightweight & 1st-5th Heavyweight by McCulloch Age Coefficient and Wilks Formula

 

Team Awards – 1st-5th Place Team Awards

 

  • Winning Team will also receive a “Traveling” Trophy (to be returned at next year’s event)
  • Winning Team’s name will be engraved on trophy. Team gets to keep it for a year.

Only 1 team entry form is required per team. However, each individual on that team must complete an individual entry form.
Team points can be scored in the Women’s Raw, Women’s Equipped, Men’s Raw and Men’s Equipped categories. Each team can have unlimited members on their team. Each team can score 10 lifters. You do not have to select which lifters will score for your team ahead of time. A lifter entered in multiple divisions will only be allowed to use one score for team points – using the division they scored the most points in. Your best point scorers will be used for your team score.

All OPEN divisions will be scored by weight class and eligible for team points. All other divisions must have a minimum of 5 lifters are required in any one division (example: womens raw junior full power) before that division is eligible to earn points for a team. Points will be awarded as follows:

All Open Full Power Divisions and Age Divisions with at least 5 lifters in it:

1st Place = 7 Points
2nd Place = 5 Points
3rd Place = 3 Points
4th Place = 2 Points
5th Place = 1 Point

All Open Bench Only Divisions and Age Divisions with at least 5 lifters in it:

1st Place = 3 Points
2nd Place = 2 Points
3rd Place = 1 Point

A single lifter can only score once for their team. If a lifter is in multiple divisions, they will use only their single best score to count towards the team score.

Tie Breaker: If in the event of a tie the following tiebreakers will be used:

Most 1st place finishes in open full power division, 2nd place finishes etc.
Most 1st place finishes in other scoring full power divisions, 2nd place finishes etc.
Most 1st place finishes in open bench only division, 2nd place finishes etc.
Most 1st place finishes in other scoring bench only divisions, 2nd place finishes etc.
If Additional tie breaker is needed: Best average wilks score using same number lifters in each division
If Team A has 3 lifters and Team B has 2 lifters in the Men’s Open Equipped Full Power, the top 2 lifters for each team will be used in average wilks score
The above order will be used if additional divisions are needed to be used.
