Competitions are a key part of participating in sport and British Weight Lifting is dedicated to providing competitive opportunities to all of our members. British Weight Lifting is committed to improving the standard of competition in the UK at all levels, from British Senior Championships, to regional and local championships.
Athlete needs are at the core of everything British Weight Lifting works towards and our competition framework seeks to support this by providing opportunities for qualification and regular high standard domestic events. Only competitors who are British Weight Lifting registered Club Members may compete in British Weight Lifting organised championships.
The BWL board has approved the BWL Technical and Competition Rules and Regulations 2016 to cover all BWL organised competitions for 2016. These TCRR replace all previous versions of the rules and regulations issued by BWL for BWL competitions and will be the only point of reference for BWL competitions in 2016. You can find a copy of the BWL 2016 TCRR here.
To ensure the best possible experience for lifters at the various BWL events, BWL will be working with event organisers, technical officials, coaches and members to achieve the following;
- Technical Officials – the need for all Technical Officials operating at competitions to be BWL licenced as if not the results/records will not be accepted, so it is vital to support our Lifters that all Technical Officials at events hold the BWL licence.
- Coach Licences – all coaches planning to go into the warm up areas at BWL events need to have a valid BWL coach licence and pass. If they don’t they will not be allowed into the warm up area.
- BWL membership – all those competing at a BWL event must be a BWL member to enter the competition as well as be a member of BWL on the day of the competition.
BWL believes the introduction of the BWL TCRR 2016 and the points above will all help to ensure the BWL events in 2016 are run in a manner which is fair for all and be of the highest competition quality.
