As a critical aspect of sport conditioning programs for athletes 12 years and older (Train-to-Train and beyond), Weightlifting serves as a vitally important component of the Green & Gold Sport System. To accommodate this function, the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation constructed the High Performance Training and Research Centre (HPTRC) which houses multiple Weightlifting sets and platforms. The HPTRC has hosted a number of provincial and national competitions and serves as a training venue for current nationally carded athletes. In the coming months, the Green & Gold Sport System will endeavour to create a range of Weightlifting programs across the appropriate ages and stages for the athletes in our system. Currently, Weightlifting is featured in our AIM Excel Camps.
