APPROVED APPAREL FOR REGIONAL AND NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS



NOTICE FROM THE CPU TECHNICAL COMMITTEE


November 1, 2023


It was brought to our attention that at regional and national events, we may have lifters

wanting to wear a singlet or t-shirt that they had traded with another lifter from a

different country. The item itself may be an approved item, but it is part of another

country's team kit and would bear that nation's logo or emblem. A team kit is created

specifically for a country's team and is not an item that can be purchased from the

manufacturer.


As of today’s date, the CPU's policies on apparel says, "Only approved apparel can be

worn (i.e. items on the IPF Approved List, items on the CPU approved logos list,

or Member Province apparel) at all CPU National or Regional level Championships."


Athletes competing at Nationals and Regionals are representing their province and as

such should only be wearing their provincial team apparel, if they are not wearing an

item that is on the IPF Approved List or an item on the CPU approved logos list.


Obviously, if the lifter is wearing Team Canada apparel, that would not be an issue.

At a provincial level competition, we have decided that wearing an item from another

nation's team kit will be allowed as long as it does not contradict that lifter's provincial

policies or bylaws.
