USAW Youth Combine

USA Weightlifting launched its combine series as its latest recruitment project aiming to find weightlifting’s next Olympic hopeful. Combines are open to athletes ages between the ages of 12 and 24. Each combine will include the following events:

– 30m sprint
– Vertical jump
– Triple hop
– Power clean
– Back squat

All athletes are welcome to attend, but please be aware that the combine is meant to find new athletes to participate in the sport of weightlifting. The target athlete will not already be a member of USA Weightlifting. The combine series is free to attend, and members of USA Weightlifting are encouraged to invite friends, family, and classmates!

The final two hours of the combine will consist of a Weightlifting Fundamentals session to go over the basics of the snatch and the clean and jerk for athletes with little or no experience with the Olympic lifts.

Top athletes will be contacted at the end of the combine series with an invitation to attend a USA Weightlifting camp in the summer of 2019. Collegiate opportunities are available.
