Mesa Community College offers the only Olympic Weightlifting Class out of all the Maricopa Community Colleges. The class is taught by 2012 Olympic Team Coach Joe Micela. Students will learn the basic technical fundamentals of the Snatch and Clean & Jerk. The students will develop the knowledge base in order to teach the movements to their piers and future athletes. They will learn these concepts both an Athlete and Coach. The Class will begin on February 2nd and run through May 15th, 2015. The Weightlifting Class specializing in the sport of Olympic Weightlifting will be on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM. This class is fairly physical and strongly suggests each student posses an intermediate fitness level but does not require the student to know Olympic Weightlifting in advance.
Class enrollment is limited to 15 students please sign up early to save your spot in the class. Coach Micela has been teaching this class going on eight years and is looking forward to this upcoming Spring Semester.
