COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This two-day, intensive course will leave you with new tools to optimize movement, positioning, and performance for the Snatch and Clean & Jerk; as well as safely manage common weightlifting injuries.

This course is appropriate for any coach, clinician, or athlete looking to improve weightlifting performance and reduce risk of injury; and the ClinicalAthlete name ensures the material will be science-based.

Upon course completion, you will earn the distinction of Certified ClinicalAthlete Weightlifting Coach (CCWC). What does this mean? It means that athletes will recognize you as having the ability to safely and effectively coach the weightlifting movements for optimal positioning and performance, as well as modify training and implement lifting variations, when it is appropriate. This course will help you bridge the gap between weightlifting performance and rehabilitation - that is within the scope of all attendees.
