To all QWA members

Schedule & Preliminary Entries

A big thank you to Libby Woods, all the Burleigh Barbell Crew (lead by Callum & Rawena), and St Andrews College for their work in putting together this event at a non-club venue.

Please click below to sign up -  if you are refereeing please also sign up for the Weigh-in.

Uniform: TO's white shirt and navy blue trousers/skirt/dress shorts and jacket.

Loaders -  closed in shoes and either a QWA t-shirt or Club t-shirt.

You will note on the competition schedule Clubs have been allocated to loading duties. This is a back-up plan to fill those gaps that exist once the roster is finalised. Anyone is very welcome to load, and please remember we could do with the assistance of experienced loaders as well. Come along and support our lifters of the future.

Remember No alcohol, No smoking, and No illicit drugs on school grounds. AND All QWA competitions are subject to testing by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Agency.

At the event most participants will be under 18 and the event is being held at a school - we need to see both COACHES and TECHNICAL OFFICIALS wearing their Blue Cards when on duty.

If you don’t have a Blue Card yet, you still have time to apply for one before the event:

Police and Teachers are exempt but do need to apply for an EXEMPTION card through the Blue Card services.

Everyone else however does need to apply for a Blue Card regardless of your work-related role.

It’s easy to apply, it’s free and takes approximately 2 weeks to receive your Blue Card. If you have an existing Blue Card, you will need to link it to the QWA.

You will need to have your form signed by a QWA representative: If you are attached to a club that has a QWA Committee member you can approach them directly. Fill out all you can on the form and be sure to have your ID with you, including a copy of your DL or similar document.
