Thanks to everyone who made our inaugural event a success. We hope to be back again for 2018. Stay tuned here for updates!
The USA Powerlifting Atlanta Women’s Open is open to female competitors of all experience levels. We celebrate female powerlifters and strength athletes and aim to attract more women to the sport of powerlifting.
CrossFitters and first-time competitors are welcome. Of course the event is also open to non-CrossFitters, more experienced lifters and all women who want to test their squat, bench and deadlift. We also welcome gender non-binary athletes who fall within the USAPL guidelines of a female lifter.
This event could not happen without the support of our volunteers and our sponsors.
Please consider donating your time by volunteering here, and check out our sponsors (listed in the sidebar —>>>>).
