It's almost time! East Coast Gold proudly presents its 30th annual weightlifting camp! In honor of thirty years of training athletes, we are holding this year's camp at the Lake Placid Olympic Training Center, June 23rd to June 28th. As you can imagine, this is an exciting venue, and we expect the thirty open slots to fill up fast.
We will also be conducting a USAW Level 2 course in conjunction with the camp, giving the coaches plenty of experience with many different athletes and giving the athletes the attention they deserve.
Registration for the 2014 East Coast Classic is now open! Come join us for our annual spring meet at York Barbell in York, PA, May 17-18. This is a big meet that always draws national-level lifters, but is also Novice and Youth-friendly. Stop by Saturday to see international team members and national medalists compete! Pictures will be available for purchase at and after the meet as well as equipment and stylish East Coast Gold clothing, often at large discounts. There is a cap of 75 lifters per day, and the meet is sure to fill up, so get your entry in soon!!
