The NSWA Club Affiliation Program helps athletes identify clubs that provide a high quality training experience, by certifying and promoting those gyms that meet the program standards. When you join an NSWA Affiliated Club, you can be confident that you will receive experienced, knowledgeable coaching in an environment geared specifically towards olympic weightlifting.

Affiliated Clubs must meet the following requirements:
  • Club coaches must be members in good standing of the NSWA
  • Have at least 1 NCCP Certified Olympic Weightlifting Coach
  • Have regularly scheduled olympic lifting training classes (min 2 - 3 per week)
  • Host an annual Club Championship for its members
  • Encourage its members to compete (outside the Club Championship)
  • Display the NSWA Affiliated Club banner

So whether you are a novice who is just learning the sport, or an advanced lifter looking to take it to the next level, an NSWA Affiliated Club can help you reach your goals.
