State Weight Meet in jeopardy
« on: January 22, 2014, 09:35:53 am »
This is forwarded....

I have had some guys asking about the State Weightmeet.  I am in the process of trying to find a venue to have the meet.  We are under some construction here so I am having to move it.  I hope to have a date by next week.  I will send out the information as soon as I have a date and place. 

I got bad news from Arkansas Tech.  They are not going to let us host the weight meet there. I am looking for suggestions as to where we can host the meet.  Please email me if you have or know a place we can host the meet.  We need to find a place soon or we are not going to be able to have the meet this year.

What's an Athletic Coordinator?

Need to find someone who knows about weight lifting and has a passion for it.  High School, Jr High, Old Jr High, Armory, give me a break!

New High School Gym construction just started, all though not much has been done.  Where was the meet held last year? I think there will be more enthusiasm about it, from Russellville, in the near future.

What's a state weight meet?  Some sort of weightlifting conference or seminar or something?

Schools come from all over Arkansas and compete in a weight lifting competition.  Kinda like a track meet.

Is there some sort of governing body that oversees it?  Weighlifting isn't a AAA-sanctioned sport, I know that.

I'm just curious who runs it.  I ask folks the same for any sports that aren't run by the AAA.  Had the same questions for the folks down here putting together White Hall's Bass Fishing and Trap Shooting teams the last couple of years.  Likewise when a guy I know was telling me the school he works at participates in Archery, or a friend from Arkadelphia who was on their swim team.  None of those are AAA sports, so it makes me curious who's running the competition.

EVENT:​22st Annual High School Weightlifting Championship
 
DATE:​April 5th
 
LOCATION:​DOVER HIGH SCHOOL, Dover Arkansas
 
TIME:  The weigh in will begin at 7:45 a.m. for those lifters qualifying for a weight class the day of the meet.  We will only weight lifters that are border line on qualifying for a weight class.  If you are sure your lifter qualifies for his weight class then there is no need to have him weigh in.  Coaches will meet at 8:15 with a lifters meeting shortly after.  There will be a short warm up time immediately following the lifters meeting for about 15 minutes with lifting beginning at 9:00 a.m.  The meet should end between 12:00 and 1:00.
 
MEET LIFTS:  Power Clean and Bench Press
 
WEIGHT CLASSES:  123 and under, 124-132, 133-148, 149-165, 166-181, 182-198, 199-220, 221-242, 243-259, 260 and up.  To be in a certain weight class the lifter must weigh exactly the class limit or less.  Example:  anyone that weighs exactly 198 or less would be eligible for the 198 weight class.  If the lifter were 198.5 he would lift in the 220 weight class or higher.  Hopefully this will answer any questions about the weight classes.  ONLY ONE LIFTER PER WEIGHT CLASS FROM EACH SCHOOL.  If you bring an alternate, he will only lift if one of your lifter is unable to lift. 
 
COST:  The cost is $200.00 per team.  Please make checks payable to State Weight Meet.  If a lifter lifts as an individual it will cost $20.00.  Medals will be given to overall 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers in each weight class.  Teams will be ranked by the amount of weight lifted per team for all ten weight classes.  An overall team championship trophy will be given for the overall team champion and a team plaque will be given for team winners of each classification.  We will award team trophies in this manner.  The 7A and 6A classifications will be combined to compete for the 7A/6A state champion.  There will be a champion crowned in the 5A, 4A, 3A, and 2A classifications.   
 
REQUIREMENTS:​THE LIFTER IS REQUIRED TO BE ENTERED INTO THE CORRECT WEIGHT CLASS.  IF THE LIFTER IS PROTESTED AND FOUND TO BE ENTERED IN THE WRONG WEIGHT CLASS, IMMEDIATE DISQUALIFICATION WILL RESULT.  IF THE LIFTER IS CLOSE TO BEING INELIGIBLE FOR A CLASS, WEIGH THE ATHLETE IN BEFORE THE MEET TO DECLARE HIM ELIGIBLE FOR THE WEIGHT CLASS.  DO NOT PUT YOUR LIFTER IN JEOPARDY OF BEING DISQUALIFIED BY FAILING TO PUT HIM IN THE CORRECT CLASS. 
 
Lifters in the 9th – 12th grade are eligible to participate. There will be no limit on 9th grade lifters.
 
DEADLINES:  For Preparation purposes, if you are planning to bring lifters to the state meet, we would appreciate it if you would call or email and let us know your school name by March 14th.  The only reason for this deadline is so that we can figure which schools will be participating and get an estimate on how many lifters to expect.  As far as an official deadline for getting us names and classes of lifters, we must receive names and weight classes by March 28th.  Please email or fax a TYPED list so there are no errors with names and weight classes.  Please include what classification your team will compete in. Hand written lists are too difficult to read. If you have a change in your lifters please email me the change as soon as you know.  It is much easier to change the list before April 5th.  It doesn’t matter how many changes you make just please email me the changes as soon as possible. 
 
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FEEL FREE TO CALL MATT WARRICK OR JEFF HOLT AT RUSSELLVILLE HIGH SCHOOL AT (479)968-9253.  OUR FAX NUMBER IS (479) 890-0245.  My email is jeff.holt@russellvilleschools.net. Matt Warrick’s email is matt.warrick@russellvilleschools.net. We look forward to seeing you at the meet. 
 
Thank You

Swimming is a AAA sanctioned sport now...might have not been then. http://www.ahsaa.org/sports-activities

Do many schools compete in this anymore?  just curious how many per class or has the format changed? 

when we competed we would have the some of the strongest guys but was only able to fill half the weight classes so we be way behind in team pts.
