Important Information Regarding Forms
There are 2 parts to the OPA/CPU Membership:
The above information is very important for this form as your CPU card is printed from the information written on this form. We understand that because Ontario is such a large province, sometimes it is difficult to train with a club once a week. If you are training a minimum of at least 2-3 times a month with a club, you may be affiliated with this club. Indicate this on your membership form. It is important for team awards at competitions. You CANNOT change clubs less than 3 months prior to a contest once you have registered. This is to eliminate stacking clubs to win the team award. To change clubs, the registrar must receive this information via e-mail or post, not a phone call.
CONTEST ENTRY FORMS
The information collected on the meet entry form is very important to provide the meet director with information on lifters attending to best set up flights and obtain awards. Remember, you must have a valid OPA Membership and e-True Sport Certificate to compete in any competition in the OPA/CPU. The entry form link will be available on the Event in the Calendar.
Note: Refer also to the Constitution and Bylaws for further clarity
