New to weightlifting? Get involved!

Want to get involved in weightlifting? Getting started is easy, just contact your local club to find out how. You will be guided by coaches that can introduce you to the basics of weightlifting. Weightlifting is open to all ages and abilities and you can progress at your own pace. If you’re unsure where to begin just contact us here to find out what it's all about.

Maybe you would like to become a qualified referee or develop your skills as a technical official? Referees and technical officials are vital to the successful running of weightlifting events. Each competition requires officials to record athletes weigh-in, act as competition director, chief marshal, timekeeper, speaker, technical controllers, referees, and a range of additional supporting officials and volunteers.

The Australian Weightlifting Federation runs a number of courses throughout the year which are suitable for those new to the sport or for people who are experienced and want to increase their knowledge and improve their skills as a technical official. More information is available on the AWF website.

WACT are always looking for volunteers. Without the commitment, effort and contributions of all our volunteers WACT wouldn’t be able to conduct the weightlifting events that we hold each year. Whatever your background or interests, there are a range of activities and opportunities for you to get involved with WACT. Please contact us to register your interest.
