BCWA’s Christine Girard was featured in the most recent edition of the Commonwealth Weightlifting Federation’s newsletter. Check it out!
Name change notice. After consulting with head coaches of clubs, it was a near unanimous decision to change the name of the “BC Senior Championships” to the “BCWA Provincial Championships.” This will alleviate any confusion that that the general public may have when they hear the word “senior,” as well as put us in line with the IWF, which now calls the world championships the “IWF World Championships”
Congratulations to Jacob Cartwright, Michael Hungerschafer, Helena Billen and Jeenat Billen for setting meet records at the Junior Doug Hepburn. Jeenat and Helena also set BCWA Youth records!
BCWA will now accept results from club competitions with ONE REFEREE. Further, BCWA will accept these totals towards qualification for the BC Senior Championships.
The BCWA women’s committee is at it again! Another training camp for the women of BCWA. For more info, check out their Facebook event HERE or e-mail Martha at firstname.lastname@example.org

BCWA may have an exciting opportunity to set up in front of the South Point (South Surrey) Save-On-Foods to promote and raise funds for “Lift to Play” as well as put on a demo of out sport and promote BCWA. It is yet to be confirmed, as well as the date/time, but it would be for a few hours during either Saturday or Sunday. If you think you would be able to help out, start thinking about it and let me know. I’ll get back to you with details when I have them.
