If you have not lifted in an AAU meet before, here is what you need to do: 1) Select a local meet to compete in. Note - everyone has their first meet - do it early and get the first meet worries over with! 2) Begin training the three lifts (Squat, Bench, and Deadlift) 3) Download a copy of the rule book (here) to review the requirements for each lift. 4) Train smart and hard for the meet. 5) Become an AAU member. The memberships price is $32/year for adults and $12/year for teenagers. The membership lasts from Sept 1 until Aug 31 of the following year. Two and three year memberships are available.

The People tab has the list of referees - they are a good place to start.
