Quick Links:

The Ontario Weightlifting Association wishes, as part of its implementation of the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD), to encourage the participation of all athletes who train in Olympic weightlifting to compete in Olympic weightlifting by organizing a series of 4 OWA Club Challenges (OCC) in the calendar year.

 

These competitions will be open to male and female athletes of all age groups. The main focus of these competitions will be to develop athletes and to increase the capacity of clubs to hold larger competitions. OWA Club Challenges will give a chance for all lifters to compete more often and to evaluate and measure their performance against other lifters of the same age group and weight category in the province of Ontario.  At the same time, clubs will gain experience, resources and skills necessary to host larger competitions in the future.

 

These competitions will all be held at participating clubs with the results emailed to the results@onweightlifting.ca which will then be posted on the OWA website. Awards will be given to the top two club based on a point system, and the award should improve the ability of clubs to develop young lifters and/or host larger competitions.

Clubs may participate at their own facility, or several clubs may get together for the competition. Either way, each club is its own team and must be registered for the competition with the OWA.

 

Athletes may ONLY take part in the competition if they are OWA members in good standing AND their club has registered for the competition.

 

Teams may be of any size; however, only the top 10 lifters' results will count towards team points. The team can be composed of any number of male and female lifters from any age group with no maximum athletes per bodyweight category. 

 

The competition period is the Friday to Sunday of the announced competition weekend. All team entries must be received at least one week prior to the competition period. All results must be emailed to results@onweightlifting.ca no later than the Sunday of the competition period at 11:45 p.m.

 

OWA Club Challenges must be refereed by a panel of 3 referees, consisting at a minimum, of one certified OWA Level 4 referee, one level 4 referee in training who has completed the written test, and a registered member of the OWA. 

 

Ontario Juvenile records can be set at  OWA Club Challenges that are refereed by 3 certified referees. OWA Club Challenges can be used to establish minimum standards for the Ontario Championships with 3 certified referees  or for the Fall Classic and WinterLift with at least 2 certified referees as long as they are performed 30 days ahead of the competitions and as long as the OWA Club Challenge falls within the corresponding qualification period.

Entry Fees & Registration

 

Each team (club) must complete a single online entry form at least one week prior to the competition period.

This template should be used at all competitions if you are not using owlcms or other competition management software.The first tab is the blank template. The second tab has explanations of how to use.  Updated to match cards used at most OWA sanctioned competitions.

Updated: November 2018

What's new: new IWF categories, Sinclair updated to 2017-2020 coefficients, column for category Sinclair (Junior/Senior categories only), and still has a sheet for sessions with male and female lifters! YOB column is now formatted for full DOB only (YYYY-MM-DD) for consistency with other OWA results. Some fields are protected to avoid accidental deletion of formulas. 

This Excel workbook is an excellent template to use for scoring any OWA-sanctioned competition if you are not using owlcms or other competition management software. The first tab of the workbook explains how to use it. There have been some changes, so please review. To improve competition flow, especially for larger competitions, it is recommended to use one workbook per session instead of one tab per session. This allows weigh-in data to be entered on a second computer instead of the competition scoring computer. 

Updated: November 2018

​​Developed by Jean-Francois Lamy of Quebec, this free-to-download software can be used by any club to run any size of competition. Small meets can easily run with one computer. Larger meets may need more computers and displays depending on their setup.
