As a result of continued COVID-19 restrictions in some states, the AWF has cancelled the AWF National Senior, U23, Junior, Youth and U15 Championships.
You can now manage your WACT membership online.
The AWF has launched iSO LIFT, a Virtual Weightlifting Tournament. iSO LIFT allows athletes of all ages to compete in a national tournament from their home gym. You must be a WACT financial member or other State Association member to participate.
Please note WACT will be holding its Annual General Meeting on Sunday 31 May 2020, 3 pm virtually on Zoom. Invites will be sent out to financial members closer to the date and we encourage you to attend.
