USAPL Coaching Certification
USA Powerlifting is now offering a Coaching Certification program available to all USA Powerlifting members. We offer 3 levels of Coaching Certifications: Club Coach, Senior National Coach, and Senior International Coach. This should cover coaches from beginning to international levels. We will strive to provide coaching candidates with information and technical expertise to allow them to coach at any level.
USA Powerlifting has compiled information on Powerlifting coaching from various sources through out the world. This information will be invaluable to Powerlifting coaches, strength coaches, personal trainers as well as specific sport trainers.
In this course, USA Powerlifting will analyze the rules of performance and execution of each of the 3 Powerlifting movements. Experienced international level coaches and staff will share coaching techniques that can be transferred to athletes at any level.
The USA Powerlifting Coaching Certification courses will be held in a condensed 2 day format. Participants shall be expected to perform Powerlifting movements during the practical portion of the course. Participants shall also coach and critique their colleagues during the execution of the lifts. A written examination will be given at the conclusion of the course. USA Powerlifting Coaching Certification will be issued after evaluation of performance of the course and successful completion of written exam.
Want to host a Certification Clinic in your town?
We require 8-10 confirmed participants and a venue to host. The venue needs to have a place to hold the classroom portion and the practical portion.
