At British Weight Lifting we have created coach training programmes, that produce world-class weightlifting coaches who help to develop medal winning athletes.

The skills learned during BWL coaching courses are invaluable in understanding the sport of weightlifting, but they can also be applied across all types and levels of physical activity to improve strength, core stability, coordination and balance.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

We have announced changes to the recognition of coaching qualifications in order to improve coaching standards within the sport. As of 1st July 2016, we only recognise qualified coaches holding the current, official BWL coaching qualifications. All coaches who held BAWLA/BWLA/Non-accredited BWL certificates and awards were required to bridge across to the new qualifications before the deadline. If you hold an award from before this process and you would like guidance on the next steps, please contact our team by clicking here.
