CHFP Weightlifting is excited to announce it has earned the designation as a USA Weightlifting Community Development Training Site for 2019. The program was created to recognize outstanding clubs that have existing active and robust programs to grow the sport of weightlifting within their community.
This year, 76 applications were reviewed by a panel of four USAW staff members. Primary considerations for selection included the coaches’ education and certification level, facility training space and equipment, proven track record to recruit and develop athletes, and existing community outreach programs to help grow the sport of weightlifting. In particular, CHFP was recognized for its progressive curriculum of educational programs for athletes and coaches, its youth development program, and its monthly free open house workouts.
CHFP Weightlifting was selected along with four other sites in the Southeast region and twenty-four sites across the country. We are honored to have our facility receive this distinction and look to forward to working with USA Weightlifting to further the growth of weightlifting in our region.
