We’re throwing a weightlifting party and you’re invited! Stop by over the weekend of August 27th-28th to support our lifting team as they throw huge amounts of weight over their heads, help raise money for our youth athletic program, and check out the awesome food, drinks, merchandise, and entertainment at our family friendly street fair!
About The Weightlifting Meet
This will be the 3rd year of the Brooklyn Barbell Open: the two-day meet is sanctioned and conducted by the Metropolitan Local Weightlifting Committee of the U.S.A. Weightlifting Federation. Participants will have three attempts to perform a 1 rep max snatch, and three attempts to perform a 1 rep max clean and jerk. The meet is sold out: we have over one hundred weightlifters participating!
About Our Youth Athletics Program
Twenty percent of all meet entry and spectator fees will go towards supporting our youth athlete program, that offers a positive framework and community through CrossFit to help at-risk youth grow into stronger and healthier individuals both physically and mentally. The Brooklyn Barbell Open marks the end of our weeklong Youth Athletic Camp.
