The 2020 Open
Praxis will host the 2020 Open, an in-person USAW sanctioned local meet in an open-air setting and open to any athlete with a USAW membership. Lifting will take place under the cover of an industrial building with 2 large overhead doors open to allow full airflow to athletes throughout the competition. Spectators will be seated outside in designated areas to allow for effective social distancing. Spectators must bring their own chairs and are responsible to clean up their area when leaving.
Sponsored by NiTOR Performance
Salt Lake County Health guidelines current at the time of the event will be followed. Pandemic guidelines may include but are not limited to:

2. 6-10 feet distance between athletes while warming up and competing.
3. Face mask must be worn by athletes when not lifting.
4. Face masks must be worn by all spectators, coaches and officials at all times.

8. Temperature checks required at the door for every participant, volunteer and spectator.
9. No entrance to anyone with a fever of 100.4+, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, sudden change in taste or smell, or muscle aches or pains.
10. Refunds will be given if competition must be cancelled due to increase in pandemic concerns or to athletes who suspect they are sick at the time of the competition.
