UTSA Powerlifting

UTSA Powerlifting

The UTSA Powerlifting team is a competitive club sport that represents The University of Texas at San Antonio.

Our goal is to provide an environment for students to further their knowledge of the sport, increase physical and mental strength, and to feed their competitive spirit.

We compete at the local and national level in the federation formally known as USA Powerlifting, a drug-free federation.

As a team, we have won six national titles, produced over 60 All-American Lifters, dozens of national champions, and world-class lifters.
