The Weightlifting club at SAW has been supported by Magic little Grants (Postcode Lottery) enabling specific equipment to be purchased. The club has also been supported via Pembrokeshire Youth Bank, a programme which has funded coaching qualifications for youth members to become qualified and to gain experience in coaching other youths in the Weightlifitng club and through other open sessions.
The Weightlifitng club meets three times per week, Tuesdays and Thursday at 5.30pm and on Saturday mornings at 9am. It’s a very sociable group, who support each other through training sessions and are also involved in social activities outside of the gym!
Some members train recreationally to achieve personal goals, health, fitness and wellness; And others train to compete in a variety of competitions from grass root tournaments to British championships.
Our volunteers manage the Weightlifitng club and are supported by number of younger members who assist in coaching
