For those of you that are certified. Do any of you, or anyone in general have info on this course?

If you want to learn how to do and teach the lifts, go to the PMenu OL seminar.

If you want to be an OL coach and have lifters competing under you at USAW meets, then get the USAW cert.

The quality and even content of the SP course seems to vary widely among coaches. It's, as I understand it, just power variations of the lifts and plyo type stuff - nothing remarkable.

+1 for Greg seminars.

Sorry, I assumed you were talking about the USAW OL club coach course.

As for the SP course, I'd say if you know how to do/teach both the "slow" lifts and the OLs, you can pretty much figure out on your own everything in between (ie. plyos, power variations, etc.).

It's my intention to get the USAW Club Coach cert. I also want to go one of Greg's certs when they get a bit closer to my area.

Both I and my two young daughters have an interest in WL. We're actually going to do our first Novice Comp at ECG's Morristown, NJ, this October. Sending out the entries tomorrow.

My only rationale in getting the cert is to learn as much as I can about the lifts. There are not many folk that oly lift in my area.

A colleague is attempting to set up a xfit facility nearby and I may end up doing some instructional courses on what I know to date - which should be enough to give them a little more than the general idea.

All the best,
Arden
