USA Weightlifting was notified that 3-time World Team Coach Chris Wilkes was selected to be part of the United States Olympic Committee's National Team Coach Leadership Education Program (NTCLEP) cohort team. The course is the first of it's kind from the USOC targeting our elite level Team USA coaches. The course is comprised of five face-to-face seminars that cover topics such as leadership, communication, personality styles, pedagogy, and more. Cohorts are small groups of coaches from different sports/disciplines. This enables the coaches to expand their communities of learning and share experiences and problem-solve together.
