Weightlifting Ireland will be running a development squad session for Youth (U17), Junior (U20) and U23 athletes in the coming months. As we have been unable to run competitions for athletes in these age groups for more than half a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that some athletes may warrant inclusion in these sessions that is not reflected in the 2019 rankings.

If you are an athlete, parent or coach of an athlete in these age groups (NEW future athletes also welcome – CrossFit, Other Sports etc) and you would like to be considered for upcoming squad sessions, please send a short email expressing your interest to – [email protected]

In the email please include:

• Best competition results (including weight class, age group, name of the competition / if applicable).

• Current training status & current best results.

• Videos of recent training (including one Snatch and one Clean & Jerk).

• Coach & club affiliation details (if applicable).

All submissions will be considered by the Development & Performance committee.
