North Queensland Developments
Earlier this month the AWF conducted a Club Weightlifting / Sports Power Coach Level 1 Licence course in Cairns.  Participants from this and previous Cairns coaching courses are currently working through the process to establish two new weightlifting clubs in the state’s far north.

For many years David De Rose has kept weightlifting alive in the north through the Cairns Green Ants Weightlifting Club; and now the prospect of more weightlifting clubs emerging in NQ presents the opportunity to develop a strong regional competition program in the not too distant future.
