Powerlifting is more than squats, bench presses and deadlifts. It is effort, persistence and loyalty. Training, determination and attitude are the key facts that define the balance between a successful or a failed attempt. The barbell may test an athlete's physical abilities, but an internal desire to improve - to not settle for less - is the drive behind the strain and dedication of the sport. You must at least 14 years old to participate.

Powerlifting program runs from Noember to May and meets at Potomac High School weight room. If you are interested in training, please contact Jerry Stanphill at jerry.stanphill@faa.gov or 202-281-8804.
