Midwest Weightlifting is a registered 501c-3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to the development and promotion of the Olympic sport of weightlifting among youth and young adults. Midwest Weightlifting is a member club of USA Weightlifting, and a Community Olympic Development Program, a program of the United States Olympic Committee.
Our athletes have won medals in national and international competitions, earned spots on national squads, hold national records and will continue to represent the United States of America in international competitions. Our mission is to develop and support our young athletes as they continue to pursue their Olympic dream. It is through this pursuit, that our young athletes develop the qualities of discipline, commitment, courage, accountability, strong work ethic, and integrity. Those willing to pursue their dream can achieve these results.
Midwest Weightlifting was created in 2001 as three existing weightlifting clubs from throughout Indiana came together to create a stronger development and support system for our athletes. Currently we number over 100 athletes at two training locations in Northwest Indiana and one at Indiana University in
Bloomington. We are partnering with the top personnel in the sport medicine field and sports science specialists to accomplish our goal of providing the best possible environment to develop young athletes in the sport of weightlifting.
