Weightlifting Internships

The Training Geek/SES Weightlifting CDP is aimed at helping budding coaches better understand the sport of weightlifting through a knowledgeable and practical approach. You will learn a whole range of tools to help clients build their capabilities and patterns up to be efficient in the snatch and clean and jerk.

Completing the program will give you the ability and confidence in handling the requirements of a weightlifting coach (from movement analysis to fault correction) and communicate instructions to a group of athletes for significant improvement.

It is expected from you to achieve 100 hours of shadowing and active coaching (with supervision) in our facility as part of the completion requirements of the program. Participating and completing the CDP doesn’t guarantee or require that you coach at SES.
