Over the course of the two days the competition will feature 6 national championships in the following age group categories:

  • U10
  • U12
  • U15
  • U17
  • U20
  • U23

All age groups from U10 - U23 are calculated based on the lifters age on 1 January in the year of the competition.

  • For example, if you are 12 on the 1 January you would compete in Under 12.
  • For example, if someone is 16 years old on 1 January but is 17 on 31 December they are classed as U17 in the year of the competition.

If you are competing in the Under 10 or Under 12 categories, you need to have competed in a British Weight Lifting Tier 3 or virtual competition.

Anyone wanting to compete in the Under 15, Under 17, Under 20 and Under 23 categories must also have competed in a Tier 3 competition or virtual and meet the English qualification standards which remain unchanged since January 2020 and can be found here.
