At the end of each week the
staff votes a lifter of the week for the player, who had the best overall
effort, and he gets 10 points, and up to three honorable mentions that will get
5 points each to go along with being recognized for their achievements.
LIFTER OF THE WEEK
how the athletes earn Lifter of the Week is
based on the total
amount of points they earn
points for the week. They earn points by having good workouts, doing extra
lifts, and winning competitions. When there are ties the staff votes on who
they think deserves the honor the most. They
try to stay consistent in how they award the honor as to prevent bias.
They are graded
daily on lifting intensity, attitude, leadership, motivation, etc. The athletes
can earn a point or subtract a point based on performance within each of these
parameters. If an athlete misses a required session it is minus 10 points. If
an athlete is late for a required session it is minus 5 points. Some
subjectivity is taken into account if someone that does not usually exemplify
positive qualities has a great week. Despite total points, they might be
considered for a runner up position.
