Team Scoring

Per USA Powerlifting rulebook

1.9. Team Competition at National Championships - General

1.9.1. Each team is allowed a maximum of eleven (11) competitors spread throughout the range of the eleven (11)

bodyweight categories for women and twelve (12) competitors spread throughout the range of twelve (12) bodyweight

categories for men. There must not be more than two competitors from any one team in any particular bodyweight category.

1.9.2. Each team must submit a team roster giving the name of each lifter and their bodyweight category. The exact

process (including deadlines) for team roster submission will be published for each meet.

1.9.3. Point scoring for all team championships shall be: 12, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, and 2, for the first 9 placing in any

bodyweight category. Thereafter, each lifter who makes a total in the competition shall be awarded one point.

1.9.4. Only the point scores of the five best placed lifters of each team will be counted for the team competition at all

national championships. In case of a tie in points scored, final team placing shall be decided for team awards as in item

1.9.5. below. If a member of a team is found to have committed a violation of the anti-doping rules during an event where a

team ranking is based on the addition of individual results (points), the points of the athlete committing the violation will be

subtracted from the team result and may not be replaced by the resulting points of another team member.

1.9.5. Team awards shall be given for the first three places at national events. In the case of a tie for the classification of a

team, the team having the greatest number of first places will be ranked first. In the case of a tie between two teams having

the same number of first places, the one having the greatest number of second places will be classified first, and so on

through the placing of the maximum of five scoring lifters. Should teams finish equally after this procedure has been applied,

then the team with the greater total number of DOTS points (of the five best placed lifters) will be declared the higher


1.9.6. Team awards and placing procedures may be done differently at local, state, and regional meets based on either

organizational policy or meet director preference. Those interested in knowing the team awards and placing procedures for

a local, state, or regional meet should contact the specific meet director for details.
