USS 2023 Membership REQUIRED for all athletes.

Top 3 in each class and 1st place Novice qualify for USS 2024 Nationals in Denver.

Competition Day:

Parking:  There is street parking on Crystal St, pay attention to signs and side of street allowed.  Remember we are in a huge park in a residential area.  Overflow parking is at Louis M. Klein Middle School lot on Nelson Ave.  The address comes up as Union Ave., but the lot is on Nelson and that intersects with Crystal St for you to walk over.  This is for spectators too so let your friends and family know.

There is a driveway up to the pavilion area which is for staff only as well as where we will have the Car DL setup.  I am unsure right now, but the registration tables are most likely under or adjacent to the left larger pavilion.  You will check in, weigh in, receive a shirt if you registered on time, AND get a yoke height.  To keep things smooth Everyone will weigh in regardless.

Weigh Ins/Registration: 730am-9am.  Plan Ahead. Do not miss.

** Some weight classes HAVE been combined.  If you want this to qualify for 2024 Nationals, you still need to make weight in the class you want to qualify for.
