Welcome to Big K's Power Meets​


I would like to personally welcome you to our site.  For the past 30+ years (23 years Sanctioned), our BATTLE of the GREAT LAKES

BIG K's OHIO CUP  (Formerly The Pete Lanzi Memorial) and THE MID SUMMER CLASSIC  have been the premier meets

in Ohio.  We have also added RELENTLESS DETROITTHE CFC WINTER POWER BASH, BORDER WARS  and

THE FLAGSHIP CITY OPEN  to our yearly meet schedule. 

 

What makes our meets the biggest and the best, you might ask?  We pride ourselves in making the lifter our top priority. 

There isn't anything we won't do for our lifters.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition to doing our best to bring you a great meet...we also HELP

THE COMMUNITY.  Since our inception, our meets have donated over $60,000 to area schools and charities.  They have been a Community Service Project for the school districts I have worked/coached at.  My student-athletes and their families work all our events and take great pride in bringing you a great meet.  Our meets have provided much needed equipment/gear and monies for students unable to participate

in sports due to a large pay-to-play charge.  Our meets have also benefited The US Army, The American Cancer Society, Big Brothers and

Big Sisters Programs, University Hospital's Gifts From the Heart and various Church Ministries, Sports Camps and Outreach Programs.

 

Our events are SO MUCH MORE than a powerlifting meet.  They're about Family and Community and Building Relationships.  If there is anything you need or if I can be of any assistance to you please feel free to give me a call or shoot me an email.

 

You've tried the rest...

NOW COME BE A PART OF THE BEST!
