Overview

Below are the IPF Team Standards in effect until December 31st 2018.

There are two sets of standards which lifters can hit and qualify for a team. Both teams are explained below. It is important to note that membership of either team requires hitting the required total for your age and weight class but merely hitting the required total does not guarantee membership of the team. Other factors will be considered once the total is achieved.

It is also important to note that membership of either team requires agreeing to be part of the IPF’s Registered Testing Pool which makes you available for, and subject to, out of competition anti-doping tests 24/7/365 via WADA. There are also standards of conduct and behaviour which all lifters must adhere to whilst members of the Regional or National teams.

Once you hit the required total for either the Regional or National Team and are invited to join then you will be a member of that team for as long as you keep hitting the standards or until one year has elapsed since your last competition total.

If one year elapses without a competition total then you will automatically leave the team (unless there are exceptional circumstances which need to be discussed on a case-by-case basis)

IPF Regional Team

The IPF Regional Team is made up of lifters competing at a high level within their region. Lifters on the IPF Regional Team are eligible to be selected to compete at regional-level events such as the All Ireland competitions as well as a small number of international events such as the University Cup or Western European Championships.
