The entry form for the 2016 Provincial Championships can be found under upcoming events.
Please note: In order to qualify for Nationals 2017, you must be considered an active lifter in the sport. An active lifter is defined as someone who has competed in or volunteered at a Provincial level meet or higher in the preceding year, excluding the previous year's National Championships. This championship fits the requirements of being considered an active lifter by the SPA executive. If you need to volunteer at this championship to meet these requirements, you must contact the meet director, Connor Lutz.
Our first Novice Lifter Workshop of 2016 will be held at Synergy Strength in Saskatoon on March 12th. This workshop is open to both SPA members and non-members. The registration deadline is March 10th.
More information can be found on our 'Upcoming Events' page.

The Saskatchewan Powerlifting Association is currently seeking sponsors for the 2016 Provincial team that will represent Saskatchewan at the 2016 Canadian Powerlifting Union National Championships in Regina, SK, from February 15-20. Last year, with the help of our sponsors, we were able to outfit our entire team that went to St. John's, NL with a team tshirt and zip up for free! It is our hope we are able to that for our team again this year.
If you and/or your company are interested in sponsoring our team, you can find our sponsorship levels below. There are four sponsorship levels, and the top levels have limited spots available, so do not delay on contacting us. For more information, please see the sponsorship document below, or contact Ryan Fowler, Saskatchewan Powerlifting Association President, at email@example.com.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in February,
The SPA executive will be setting the competition calendar for 2016 in the coming months. The process has changed for applying to host a Sanctioned Competition. Below is the application form that all meet directors are required to fill in and submit to the SPA President for approval. Application forms for 2016 will be accepted until October 30, 2015.
If you are interested in hosting a competition but are very flexible on the date, please fill in the document and submit and the SPA executive will work with you to solidify dates. Submission of an application does not mean that your competition application will be guaranteed to be approved. The SPA executive will be looking to develop the calendar of competitions taking many factors into account. We will release the competition calendar in November so lifters can begin to make plans for their training.
As well, no bid was received for the 2016 Provincial Championships at this year's AGM. Therefore, there is also a call for submission of the same attached form to bid on hosting the 2016 Provincial Championship. As required, Provincials must be held between September 1 and October 31 each year, and must be hosted by a meet director with some experience hosting competitions. If any interested parties wish to submit an application to host the 2016 Provincial Championships, please fill in the document below but ensure you submit it as a bid to host Provincials, not just an application to host a Sanctioned Competition.
Thank you for your interest in hosting competitions. Without volunteer meet directions, the SPA athletes do not have a venue to showcase their strength. Any questions can be directed to SPA President, Ryan Fowler, at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have lots of events coming up in Saskatchewan. Take a look at our Upcoming Events page for more details.
