This weekend we see the running of Round 2 of the JME Qld Club Challenge over a good part of the State. With competitions as far north as Cairns, as far west as Miles, and south to the Gold Coast.

Just over 3 weeks now till Queensland hosts the 2017 AWF National U15 & Youth Championships at Cougars Weightlifting Club, Chandler. Queensland has 55 lifters entered to lift. Mark it off in your diary to come along and support our young lifters over the 2 days of competition on the 8-9th July. There will be heaps of opportunities to volunteer - general (Loading, computer, hospitality, medal ceremony assistants, First Aid) and Technical Official - email if you would like to help out.

We have also had some exciting news filter through to the QWA Office with Sonia Stenhouse being appointed as the Team Manager for the Australian Junior team competing at the Commonwealth Championships at the Gold Coast, 4-9 September. Congratulations Sonia!!!!
