MEMBERSHIP CHANGES

As from the start of the 2018 membership year on November 1st 2017, the Associate membership category is being discontinued. This is because there are few members who take up this option and confusion surrounding who is eligible. In addition, the upper age limit for the sub-junior category is being raised to 18 years of age. This is to come into line with IPF age groups.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Members are reminded of their responsibilities regarding postings on social media. Abusive or derogatory comments directed against other members for any reason will not be tolerated and contravenes our rules. Disciplinary action may be taken against anyone who disregards this guidance.

COACHING STAFF

Lawrence Farncombe has decided to step down as Head Classic Coach to concentrate on new projects of his own. In addition, Pete Sparks is also stepping down as Head Junior Classic Coach to focus on developing our coaching structure and courses. We would like to sincerely thank both of them for all their hard work, which has significantly enhanced the performance of our international teams. Further announcements will be made in due course regarding their replacements.

SPORT ENGLAND CLUB MATTERS

It's an excellent advert for powerlifting and one of our most successful clubs in terms of attainment for lifters of all ages and abilities and a real credit to Fred and his team.

INTERNATIONAL REFEREES

Congratulations to Jim McGill on passing his Category 1 IPF International Referee's exam. Very well deserved.

British Powerlifting is the only UK powerlifting organisation that carries out independent WADA compliant drug testing. In 2017 we conducted some 140 anti-doping tests, all at our own expense. GB lifters in World Championships are registered with the IPF for Out of Competition Testing (OCT).
