After extensive capital and sweat investment, I'm happy to announce the official start of our '306 Elite Weightlifting Club'. Though we have been competing in the sport of Powerlifting and Olympic Lifting for the past two years, we now have all the resources (access, programs, coaches) to ensure that both our Powerlifters and Olympic lifters can achieve new heights.
Access - Our lifting room is accessbile M-F from 6AM-8:30PM, S-S 9AM-1PM
Programs - Our Power Lifting program will be provided by National Bronze Medallist Marc Morris, and our Olympic lifting program will be created by National Bronze Medallist Richard Gonsalves.
Coaches - Our powerlifters can have access to Marc during scheduled PL classes (Wed from 8:00PM -9:30PM, Sunday Noon-2PM). Our Olympic lifting classes will be jointly coached by Ty Prosofsky and Richard Gonsalves. The Olympic lifting classes will now be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00PM -8:30PM. Ty will be heading up the program under the guidance of Richard. Richard will be returning to 306 every 4-6 weeks as he attempts to transition fully to Saskatoon. During his absence Ty will be coaching the classes.
In the last two years our PL and OLY programs have produced four podium finishes at the national level, and numerous provinicial and national records. With this extra dedication to both programs I'm excited to see the new heights that 306 athletes will reach.
We are excited to welcome a brand new baby girl to the 306 family! Nathan and Amber Lynchuk welcomed Emmeris Isabelle into the world on August 01st. She weighed in at a healthy 8 pounds 4 oz, much smaller than big brother Finnick. They are all doing well and adapting to being a family of four. Welcome to the world Emmeris:)
