Resources & Information for Youth
Internationally in our sport, the Youth category is officially for children between the ages of 13 years old and 17 years old. Children under 13 years old can also compete in the sport of weightlifting at BCWA sanctioned events. It is very important for youth to learn from experienced and certified weightlifting coaches. At BCWA, we have registered weightlifting clubs in our province with excellent Youth Weightlifting programs coached by experienced and certified weightlifting coaches so you can be sure that your child will learn how to train the correct way from the beginning.
