Welcome to the US Steinholding Association!
The US Steinholding Association was formed as a means of promoting the sport of Steinholding/Masskrugstemmen and bringing it to a wider audience.
We love the athleticism, sheer determination and sportsmanship that we have seen in our years of experience with steinholding and we want to share it nationwide!.
We hope to accomplish this through the following means:
- Establish a governing body for the sport by providing a well defined, standardized set of rules by which competitions should be judged.
- Providing an access point to newcomers by creating a resource for finding competition locations nationwide.
- Posting competition results to honor the hard work and determination of steinholding competitors.
- Chronicling the history of the sport from its roots in medieval Bavaria through modern day competitions.
- Providing training guides for competitors who want to extend their times and move to a higher level of competition.

In the experience of the USSA, rules and enforcement are often inconsistent between competitions. In order to ensure that all competitors are being judged fairly and to the same standards, the following rules have been established. There are multiple judges present at the National Masskrugstemmen Championship to enforce these rules, so it is important for all competitors to know them in advance and incorporate them early into their training to ensure good form.
