We have an opportunity to bring Coach Tim Swords-Team Houston to Vintage for an Olympic Weightlifting Clinic. He offered to come and host a 3-hour clinic on either Saturday, December 16th at 3PM or Sunday, December 17th at 12PM. The cost will be $105 per person.
If you’re interested in attending, please let me know which day works best for you, or both and please comment if you prefer to do Snatch or Clean and Jerk in the clinic. Vote in the facebook poll here.
Last summer Coach Swords coached Sarah Robles to Team USA’s first weightlifting medal in 16 years. He has been running a non-profit gym out of his garage for decades training youth-adults.
