April 16, 2019, 2 p.m. (ET)

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (April 16, 2019) -- USA Weightlifting is headed to the San Francisco Bay Area as the 2020 National Junior Championships and National University & Under 25 Championships land at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, California February 6-9, 2020.

“The Bay Area is home to legendary weightlifting athletes, teams and clubs and we look forward to bringing national competitions here next year,” said Pedro Meloni, USA Weightlifting Director of Events and Sponsorships. “A big thanks to California Strength and our partners at Visit Tri-Valley for the support in bringing these events to the Bay Area.”

Meet Hotel:

The DoubleTree by Hilton, 7050 Johnson Dr., Pleasanton CA, with rooms priced at $119.00. Click here to book.

A shuttle will be provided between the DoubleTree and the venue.


Further details about qualification, registration and hotel booking options will be available later in 2019.

New in 2020, the University, Under 25 and Junior National Championships will share a location and date. This solution is designed to save money for the many coaches, teams and athletes that travel to both events and enables USA Weightlifting to provide an upgraded event experience. We look forward to your feedback on this change.
