Commonly held opinions by many of the Powerlifting world.

Some things can be said:

Snatches can put the elbow and shoulder under stress.

It's known that missed cleans can end up being really bad sprains.

Is it really worth the risk for reward?

For some sports and due to how much training time you have, I don't think it is.

While I might think it's neat to have a gymnast train cleans and jerks and snatches, I do not feel it's all that necessary. Probably the same could be said for pitchers or quarterbacks.
