How to register your entry for this competition
Go to the link " Competition Registration" on the top menu, right-hand side. You will only be able to register if you are a member of Weightlifting Tasmania Inc.
When you register there are three pieces of information that the entry system requires:
- In the competition registration portal, select your name which will appear in the drop-down list of members (so you have to be a member or your name will not appear).
- Enter your date of birth
- Enter your AWF code which you receive by email when you become a member/and your membership is approved.
This system will then identify you and you will be able to proceed.
You should then nominate your "entry total" and if you are a beginner it is okay to leave this blank. But if you have competed before, you should nominate either your previous best total or an amount less.

Guidelines for Competitors
The expected standard of dress for competitors who are new to Weightlifting competitions is that clothing must not be loose, and that elbows should be clearly visible. These rules allow referees to adjudicate appropriately. If a T-Shirt and shorts are worn, the T-Shirt must be tucked in. Tights may be worn, with or without shorts over the top.
Competitors who are regular participants in the competition should wear competition apparel that abides by the International Rules of Weightlifting. This means wearing a lifting costume.
All competitors should be aware that the maximum width of a Weightlifting belt is 12cm.
The competition format will follow the 'ascending bar principle', as normal. This means that competitors choosing the lightest weights go first, and the bar only goes up in weight during the course of the session.
Help is always on hand for new participants. You can also request help via the Weightlifting Tasmania Facebook page.
