Resources & Information for Masters

Internationally in our sport, the Masters category is recognized officially for individuals over the age of 35 years old.  Nationally in Canada, Canadian Masters Weightlifting recognizes individuals over the age of 30 years old.  BCWA includes lifters over the age of 30 in its Masters competitions, but only recognizes those lifters over 35 for Masters rankings, records and best lifter awards.  Individuals in this age category who want to get into the sport can easily find a BCWA registered club with experienced and certified weightlifting coaches to teach them how to train the correct way from the beginning.  Individuals become eligible on January 1 of the year that they will turn 30 or 35.  At BCWA, we offer various Interclub competitions, sanctioned open meets, provincial level meets, and national level competitions that Masters athletes can compete in and qualify for higher level events throughout the calendar year.
