As soon at the years schedule is up I start planning meets for my HS team and meets for myself.
How far will you travel to go to a meet?
How far would you go for A National Meet?
Anywhere if it was for a record or to compete against some one in my wt. class/division
What draws you to the meets that you enter?
Mainly to coach and lift with my lifters
How long is you training for a meet?
Prefer 9-12 weeks for my lifters but usually more like 6-8 weeks due to scheduling with NASA and TX HS Meets
What would cause you to enter a meet that was posted with short notice?
Opportunity to get more of my HS Lifters in competition especially new ones if they had not competed yet.
Do awards, or cost of entry to the meet play a factor in you selection?
Do you like meets with small or large number of lifters?
Both, prefer smaller ones for my new lifters and bigger ones for my more experienced lifters
What other factors do you consider?
Fitting in as many meets as possible but also have to work around our TX HS Powerlifting schedule too.
