Selection Criteria:

Must be a current Powerlifting America member in good standing.
Athletes must pay all past and present team fees before the end of final nominations.

Primary Selection:

Totals from the 2024 SBD Sheffield Powerlifting Championships and the 2024 Powerlifting America Classic Open National Championships will be considered. The highest total achieved in each weight class between the SBD Sheffield and Classic Open Nationals will get the first invite to the US national team (the acquired total must be at least 85% of their weight class’ IPF world record as of January 1st, 2024). 

If two lifters post the same total in the same weight class, the one with the lighter body weight will receive the first invite. 

If two lifters post the same total in the same weight class at the same body weight, the lifter who achieved the total first will get the first invite.

Secondary Selection:

All other lifters (including any national or international meets between 3/1/2023 and 3/17/2024) will be put in the alternate pool and ranked based on proximity to the IPF world record total in their weight class as of January 1st, 2024.

The NAPF Team will comprise the first eight alternates who do not receive a spot on the IPF World Team.

85% of World Records (as of 01/01/2024)
