British Weight Lifting commits to supporting potential clubs throughout the process and acknowledging those who are successful in attaining the accreditation by marketing and promoting them as clubs who deliver good practice aligned with British Weight Lifting pathway objectives.

The accreditation is broken down in to 4 key areas:

  • Club health (culture, safeguarding and governance)
  • Sustainability
  • Athlete development
  • Coach development

Each area possesses minimum standards and competencies that must be demonstrated/maintained before a club receives fully accredited Talent Academy status.

This process takes a minimum of 6-12 months with the support of a British Weight Lifting pathway coach.
