Calling all lifters, climbers, and weekend warriors! Grip Sport International (formerly North American Grip Sport) is THE premier grip contest organization in the United States, and it's expanding into Denver!
You've been to our weightlifting meets. You've been to our powerlifting meets. Now check out our grip contests, with the same standards of quality and professionalism you've come to expect from our events.
With divisions for novice, open, and elite competitors, it doesn't matter if you're completely new to grip sport and have no idea what the implements are (or how to use them) or have been involved for years and are looking to break records. This meet is for you.
For you newbies (And there will be a lot--we project over half of the participants will be completely new to grip sport!), we will send out an e-mail prior to the competition with photos of the implements to be used and instructions on how to use them. In addition, we will have a detailed instructional meeting on the day of the competition prior to the start of lifting to let you try out the equipment before it "counts" for the meet. We are also here to answer any further questions you have from now until the day of the competition.
