The purpose of these squad sessions is to assess athlete fitness to determine the potential selection for the European Youth (U17) Championships and the European Junior & U23 Championships. They will also be used to create a safe and encouraging environment where they can develop as an athlete with the help of the Weightlifting Ireland coaching team, with aspirations of competing at the highest level in the sport.
Weightlifting Ireland is committed to running regular squad sessions for our Youth, Junior & U23 athletes with multiple sessions throughout the year, held around the country.
