EVENTS: Olympic Weightlifting Technique Training Sessions - Summer 2010

I just got this notice from WCS/Gattone Sports Performance:

Due to the high demand we are going to officially open up our Olympic Weightlifting Technique Training Session twice a week at our Buffalo Grove Facility. These sessions are 1 hour in length and will cost $25 per visit. There is no long term commitment, no monthly fee, just a flat rate of $25 per visit. We will cap these groups off at a certain number to assure a low coach to athlete ratio. These sessions will be for those interested in getting some coaching from some of the best coaches in this sport. The groups will begin next week and will be on Thursday evenings at 5:00 and Saturday mornings at 9:00 am. These times will be permanent for the summer. Since we are going to cap off the number of participants and we might have a few conflict dates, we ask you to pre-register by phone or email. In the next month we will have online registration available. Email us at or call us at 847-947-7398 to register today, again the first date will be Thursday, June 10th. These groups are open to everyone, so feel free to pass the word.

NOTE: In November 2009, I attended one of their 3-hr sessions on the snatch movement. It was great. I learned some great pointers. In Olympic weightlifting, technique is king!! I recommend this training for anyone who is serious about adding Oly lifting into their routine. Here is a short post and ugly video on my experience there.
