Host Powerlifting Event



Here is a form for location owners/managers/decision-makers who would like to have USA Powerlifting sanctioned events hosted at your business location. My name is Steve Mann and I am the owner of PurePowerlifting LLC and I have been running (drug tested / drug-free) USA Powerlifting sanctioned events since 1998. 

I recently took over as the USA Powerlifting Pennsylvania State Chair and I would like to expand our footprint and help bring drug tested Powerlifting events all around the state of Pennsylvania. 

I know of the expense and the work it takes to start running events, in the quality they need to be run. We have over-investment in equipment that can be utilized to run top-notch lifting events in any location. 

Basic Location Requirements (70 lifter event)

  • Working bathrooms (2 Male / 2 Female)
  • Changing Area
  • Open space adequate to run an event (Min 3000 SQ FT)

We can bring in the equipment required for the competition platform, including sound system, computers, backdrops, and flooring. We operate the event and handle all the aspects of planning like event logos, t-shirts, trophies and all that sort of thing.

It would be very helpful the more you can help with the event. We recommend someone at your location take the state referee exam. This will put more knowledge on-site that is needed to run these style events. 

If your facility has lifting equipment useable for warm-up space that would be very helpful, but not a requirement. If you could supply spotters and loaders to operate the event, that would be helpful as well. 

This is a profit-sharing style agreement. We are looking for any locations who would be interested. Please fill out the form we'll be in touch.

Please fill out this form to get your location considered.
