2024 Dutch Strength Weightlifting
Tournaments 13+yr

Every seaon – spring, summer, autumn and winter – we organise at sunday’s a Dutch Strength Seasonal Cup 13+yr ( -18yr athletes need to be guided by their parents/caretakers). And in between also Lift-off’s. As usual we ask every athlete to register 1 person as helper for the organisation (e.g. loading the bars or other tasks) in their group. Finally every athlete (NGB-licensed) can also register 1 coach (NGB-licensed).

New in 2024 is our newbees – not yet member of the NGB, but want to taste a real olympic lifting competition. No singlet and license obliged and less strict judging.

After payment you have to add data in a seperate google-form like NGB License, name of coach and/or helper.

The data are all checked at the end of the period of subscription. Because of limited space in our gym we organise this event only with limited public.

Rules are compliant to IWF (including sporttenue singlet etc) with the exception of the lifting platform (see below).

After all results have been double-checked the athlete receives a certificate per mail by Dutch Strength and automatically participates at the Dutch Strength 2023 ranking. Seperate results are administrated nationally if possible/permitted by NGB to national ranking (Q-points male / female) and records at age/bwt classes by the association.
We send all the lifters docs related to groups and timetable one week before the competition in agreement with NGB and take into consideration constraints number of athletes subscribed, coaching/offical roles, club etc.
