Returning for a second year the USA Weightlifting women's coaching weekend is scheduled for October 8th through the 11th in Overland Park, KS. Participants will have the opportunity to attend both the USA Weightlifting level 1 and level 2 courses to be led by Anna Martin a veteran athlete, coach, and club owner in the sport. This weekend will allow for shared experiences, expanded skills, and the promotion of a class of new female coaches to continue to grow our female coaching population. 

This concept was originally created through the USA Weightlifting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee in 2018 as a tool to help promote opportunities and advancement for women within our community. At the time of the launch our membership was 62% male and 38% female overall we have since grown to reach gender parity within the sport and are hoping to achieve the same within the coaching ranks.
