Weightlifting at Seaward Barbell
Seaward CrossFit is active in USA Weighlifting under the club name “Seaward Barbell.” This club was created out of the desire to offer a program that provides for legitimate, internationally recognized competition for individuals of all ages and sizes. Our vision is to develop a team of individuals who desire to compete in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting which consists of two lifts, the Snatch and Clean and Jerk. Seaward Barbell will provide a structured program and coaching that will allow for progressive, long term, and safe development of competitive weightlifters.
Our mission with this program is to create an environment that pushes our clients to grow as both athletes and individuals. This program will provide for a competitive atmosphere that will continually drive progress, but will also offer a nearly limitless amount of support and camaraderie. The pursuit of competence and ability in the snatch and clean & jerk will surely test and develop the perseverance, dedication, work ethic, and character of all athletes.
We will have a sanctioned USAW club, Seaward Barbell, and will be actively competing in the sport of weightlifting through sanctioned USAW lifting meets and tournaments. As such, we will require all individuals who wish to participate on the Weightlifting Team to register as USAW Weightlifters at: http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Weightlifting/Membership
