This is the first of 5 rounds of the Olympic Weightlifting New Zealand Club Champions League. It is also the second step in getting some of our coaches and members qualified as referees.

Weigh in will start at 9am with lifting starting a 11am. We still have spots available if you want to lift, so come down get weighed in and start warming up.

All are welcome to come down to spectate, you might also find yourself helping out 🙂
