Youth Weightlifting - Starts March 1!

Our Youth Weightlifting program will be making some major changes starting March 1st!

(Until then - things are running as usual! Tuesday & Thursday at 4:30pm, drop in / punch card)

Changes in schedule & registration:

  • Tuesday & Thursday 4:00 - 5:00pm (Starting March 1)

  • Classes must be pre-registered for via the CF Vic City Website (Please note: the Vic City website has yet to be updated).

  • Full class schedule, both Tuesday & Thursday $190.00

  • Half class schedule, Tuesday OR Thursday $120.00

  • Drop in remains at $20.00, however this option is not recommended due to the nature of the class.

Changes in class format:

  • Classes will incorporate a progressive structure starting with a foundation of general movement.

  • Initial and final assessment to establish a baseline, progress, and outcome

  • Emphasis on motor patterns in the squat, jump, and throw

  • Emphasis on motor skills including agility, balance, coordination, and active mobility

  • Foundational weightlifting skills - technique in the snatch, clean, jerk, press, pull, and squat

  • Education - anatomy, biomechanics, mindset, and healthy lifestyles

Why Youth Weightlifting?

  • Athletes learn to to define quality movement

  • Earn a sense of accomplishment as they demonstrate their own quality of movement and power/strength through that movement

  • Athletes learn technique that they can apply to other sports, cross training, and training camps

  • Athletes develop basic mental skills for life and sport: focus, discipline, goal setting, receiving constructive criticism, stress management, and having fun with exercise

  • Athletes learn about sport and health: anatomy, biomechanics, sport history, lifestyle skills, stress management, social & team skills

Class is open to youth aged 8-16 and NO experience is necessary!

Coached by Rachel Siemens & Josh Leangen
