Arena Ready has a long history of competitors in Olympic-style weightlifting, and that tradition will continue with three of our athletes competing in their first-ever USA Weightlifting sanctioned event — the 2018 Rite of Passage Meet!

Jeannie, Cassie, and Liz will take the competition platform this weekend with AR coaches and supporters cheering them on. Our friends at Speed Power Strength (SPS) host this competition every year at their amazing facility, and they do a fantastic job organizing and running one of the most fun weightlifting meets around.

So make the short trip over to Oakland to watch some big lifts and cheer for our three athletes. Meet location and session start times are listed below… GOOD LUCK Jeannie, Cassie, and Liz!!!
