2015 Provincial Team Training Camps - Feb 15 2015

The SPA will be hosting 2 Provincial Team training camps leading up to this year's National Championship.  The purpose of these two training camps is to provide the opportunity to receive feedback on their training and technique from fellow lifters and coaches as well as build camaraderie among the members of Team Saskatchewan.

See the document below for additional information and the registration form.  There are two training camps, one in Moose Jaw on Feb. 28 and one in Saskatoon on Mar. 14.  Attendance at either session is not mandatory, but we would encourage anyone lifting at Nationals to attend one or both. There is no cost for registration, however registration is mandatory so we can plan appropriately. This training camp is open to any lifters who will be lifting at the 2015 National Championship. A valid CPU card is also required.
