I understand that the officially government recognised powerlifting federation in South Africa is the SA Powerlifting Federation (SAPF). WPC-SA is in no way associated with SAPF and as such will receive no government funding nor endorsement. WPC-SA does not attempt to duplicate the functions of the SAPF in any way. As such, should I strive towards achieving officially recognized South African national colours and/or officially represent South Africa at international level, then the SAPF is the correct vehicle towards achieving that goal.
WPC-SA does not offer South African national colours nor do they send an official team towards the IPF world championships and/or other IPF-sanctioned international competitions. Instead, WPC-SA will be sending representatives to World Powerlifting Congress (WPC) competitions if and when possible.
WPC-SA strives towards maintaining cordial relationships with the SAPF and any other powerlifting federations and we welcome any IPF or RPC members to compete at our competitions. However, I also do realise that the SAPF does not allow their members to affiliate with nor compete in other federations. It then follows that if I’m affiliated with SAPF and should I then decide to compete at any WPC-SA competitions, then it might jeopardise my membership of the SAPF.
I understand that WPC-SA strives towards fair play and high ethical standards. WPC-SA does not condone the use of any banned performance enhancing substances in order to increase athletic performance.
WPC-SA is affiliated with the World Powerlifting Congress (WPC) and as such WPC-SA follows the WPC rules, which are available for download on their website. I do understand that there are rule differences between WPC and other federations and I will familiarise myself with the WPC rules before competing at WPC-SA competitions.
