  4. Those that competed and registered a total in the previous year’s nationals can use that meet as a qualifier. They do not need to use a NJ meet total to qualify.

Selection Process:

National team registation has changed. There are no longer combined teams.

Members will be chosen from the meet roster after the meet entry deadline. Team entry will be submitted before team dedline.

Team selection will be based on stats in the USA Powerlifting Lifting database and the lifter’s ranking published in the current roster for the meet. Individual emails will be sent out to invite athletes to join the team. Athlete’s will have 48 hours to respond. If they do not respond, the spot will go to the next in line. If the athlete excepts the invitation within the 48 hours they will secure a spot on the team. The athlete will be reimbursed for their entry fee for one division ($150 max) and receive a TNJ t-shirt. Lifters can use their own coach/handler at the meet. If you don’t have one we will try to provide a teammate or coach to help you at the meet.

Reimbursement will be sent after nationals. Lifters must compete to receive reimbursement.

This is possible through the sale of TNJ shirts throughout the year and donations from Powerlifting Events LLC.
