West Virginia Powerlifting Association

We are a group of West Virginia Powerlifting Referees and Competitors, who have extensive International, National and State level experience, in Organizing and Administering Powerlifting and Strength Events.

We share a common interest in running local meets with  an emphasis on “Fun”.

Our First Event was the WV State High School Championships of 2023

The WVPA has recognized USPF Records prior to 2023 and has incorporated them into our Database. Our Rules Comittee also based our Rules of Performance on a combination of IPF and USPF Rule sets prior to 2022.

Our Competitions are performed both “Raw” and “Equipped”..

Please see our Rules & Records Section for official WVPA Information.

The WVPA is the Only Powerlifting Association to focus solely on West Virginia Lifters.
