Welcome to the  CKA


Canadian Kettlebell Alliance


We respect and appreciate that there are many different Kettlebell Sport federations with representation across Canada.  Along side those other federations, in an effort to progress Kettlebell Sport in Canada to an international level, the CKA has partnered with the American Kettlebell Alliance (AKA) for representation under the International Union of Kettlebell Lifting (IUKL) - the only overarching international body for kettlebell competition at this time.  Please note that we at the CKA wish to be inclusive of ALL federations and participants in our events.  It must be noted, however, that CKA events run under the rules, regulations, and ranking protocols of the American Kettlebell Alliance (AKA).


This sport cannot grow in our country without lifters.  Regardless of your affiliation, you are welcome to compete under the CKA banner. 


The representatives for the CKA are Misty Shearer of Edmonton, AB and Linda Gilmour of Victoria, BC.  Both representatives strive to develop Kettlebell Sport in Canada by:

  • Generating interest in Kettlebell Sport in communities across our nation
  • Strengthening collaboration between Kettlebell Sport representatives across Canada
  • Supporting and fostering the mastery of Kettlebell Sport at internationally competitive levels
