NorCal Powerlifting (NorCal)

AAU Logo

NorCal Powerlifting promotes drug-free powerlifting competitions throughout the State of California. Overall, our goal is to promote and enhance the competitive spirit of powerlifting.
NorCal Powerlifting is open to all ages and levels. We offer competitions in full Powerlifting, Push/Pull, Bench Only, and Deadlift Only in both Raw and Equipped divisions.
The NorCal Powerlifting Drug Testing Program was created to protect the health and safety of the athletes and to ensure that no one participant might have an artificially induced advantage or be pressured to use chemical substances. Drugs generally purported to be performance enhancing and/or potentially harmful to the health and safety of the athlete are banned by NorCal Powerlifting. Any use of a substance banned by NorCal Powerlifting may be cause for loss of eligibility. The use of a banned substance is determined by an analysis of an athlete's urine by a NorCal Powerlifting certified laboratory.
Equipped Division NorCal Powerlifting allows single ply polyester bench shirts, squat and deadlifts suits. They do not allow denim, canvas, open back or Velcro closure shirts. Briefs are not legal. Knee wraps up to 2m may be used.
