Promoting a Contest

Checklists and Information
READ THE ENTIRE PAGE AND MAKE SURE YOU SUBMIT ALL ITEMS INCLUDING THE SANCTIONS, OUR ENTRY, and A WEIGHT MATRIX if desired.  NOTE - Have your links ready to go when you submit. If not you will need to submit a new entry. It take longer for USS to make corrections than it does for you to do it correctly the first time!

Introduce yourself to USS. If you are a veteran promoter, you may have already done this. Either way, share your ideas for a show. and include this form, filled out completely. Be sure to use the legal name of the venue/ property owner for insurance purposes. 

The Entry Form and Payment

  1. Now that you have been approved, send payment HERE, and fill out this form...  

  2. No, do not fill it out like a competitor, fill in the blanks with pertinent information for your contest. Ex: CONTEST DIRECTOR: John Albrecht

  3. Include the appropriate weight divisions and classes. You are not required to have all of them at every show! Here they are in case you were wondering, but these should not be manipulated - stick to the declared parameters.

  4. Add an online entry link, Facebook, etc. in the space provided.

  5. Very carefully add names of people, places, and things (these are nouns), to the waiver if necessary.

  6. We will convert to PDF after we proof for mistakes.

  7. Once you are done with that, download this Albrecht Weight matrix OR fill out his FORM or your entry.


  9. We post contests (and scores) 2x a week, on Wednesday and Weekends, so it could take 3 - 7 days depending on when you submit and holidays.


Here is how you do results...

  • Submit your results in Excel format. If you share a Google Spreadsheet that is O.K. too.

  • In the Email Subject line, Type: Results and the contest date. ie: RESULTS 12/31/19

  • Be sure to include the NAME and the DATE of the contest, as well as the LOCATION (State).

  • Results should be in the format available below, or at least look VERY similar to them. The instructions are contained in the example spreadsheet.

  • All score should be on ONE sheet. If sent with scores on multiple sheets, they will be sent back to make corrections.

  • Do not PDF results - USS will do that.

  • NO PICTURES for results.

A Template is available below. It has an example on it with general instructions as well.

National Records

Let's assume you wish to have a National record breaking event...

Here is what you do:

  1. See if an USS administrator can come Judge your event.

  2. Set up room and travel arrangement for the judge. 

  3. Fill out the Record Form and submit with results.

  4. NO FORM = NO RECORD!!! Athletes, make sure you have a form filled out for you and hold the promoter responsible.​
