There is a lot of interest from students on learning different weightlifting techniques but with the equipment that we are lacking, there aren’t many ways that we can safely learn the art of weightlifting without using bumper plates. Our students come from all walks of life and I would like to teach them a how to not only become stronger physically but mentally! I feel like this project, if funded, will give our students as well as our community a boost in morale!
I am trying to get enough bumper plates for our school to start a weightlifting program. I have a passion for the sport and would like to encourage our students to learn some new techniques for their weightlifting practice. Students will be able to learn technique while perfecting their skill and becoming a stronger, healthier individual. I would like to eventually develop a program so that we may be able to take some students to compete! This will also teach students a new and healthy way to deal with stress while becoming more confident. I feel that this could be the start of some great things for our students.
