Welcome to the official website of USAPL for the state of Connecticut! The mission of USAPL CT is to provide an opportunity for all athletes who meet the criteria for membership in the USAPL to compete in uniformly high quality and drug tested powerlifting meets. The USAPL is an affiliate for the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) which provides international drug tested competition annually at world championship and other international competition events.
For those unfamiliar about powerlifting, the sport consists of three events; the squat, bench, and deadlift. In powerlifting, you can compete in various divisions characterized by age or association.
Each age division is also broken into weight classes. For more information please visit the "About Us" page.
