THIS EVENT HAS PASSED!

Guest Entry: $5 cash only

To best control guest entry traffic, we are going to have set times that we will be allowing spectators to enter into Springfield S&C.
First Session Spectators: 8:00am – 9:30am (opening 30 minutes before the 1st session starts, and then closing 1 hour after)
Second Session Spectators: 1:30pm – 3:00pm (opening 30 minutes before the 2nd session starts, and then closing 1 hour after)
This will make sure that the first session will be finishing up and first session spectators are leaving the building before we then are allowing our next wave of spectators to be cycling in for the second session. Overall this will just help with traffic and making it easier on your friends and family to find room when they arrive, and also make sure we have plenty of room for all of you during check-ins so that you are not struggling to work your way through a crowd as you are trying to get set up. They will all be receiving wrist bands at the door, so if they leave they are allowed to come back in at any time, we just will not be allowing any new guest entries outside those times.

We have officially reached our cap of 60 competitors! For those who may have missed out but are still interested, please contact me at sdenovi@gmail.com to be added to the waitlist! Last year we eventually had 7 people from the waitlist added to the meet, as there will be drop outs!

We are excited to bring USA Powerlifting to Springfield, Missouri once again this year! This powerlifting meet reached the max of 60 lifters last year, and eventually had a waitlist up to another 9 lifters. So this meet will fill up, so don’t wait too long to register! It will be hosted at the brand new powerlifting gym in Springfield, MO, Springfield Strength & Conditioning!
