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, trainer, clinician, or student looking to improve weightlifting performance and reduce risk of injury; and the ClinicalAthlete name ensures the material will be based on the best available scientific evidence. 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 knowing how to modify training appropriately, if injury is present. This course will help you bridge the gap between weightlifting performance and weightlifter health.

Those who successfully complete the course and pass the post-course assessment will have the opportunity to be listed on the ClinicalAthlete Directory as a Certified ClinicalAthlete Weightlifting Coach, as well as be a part of the ClinicalAthlete Forum!
