Coaching the Snatch – Concepts, Cuing, and Performance – In-person or virtual – Sunday, February 21, 2021 with Dr. Andrew Layne, PhD, CSCS, USAW L2

Join me at Layne Performance for our 2nd Annual Coaching the Snatch clinic. This hands-on learning experience will prepare you to properly implement the snatch and snatch partials into your athletes’ training programs. The snatch may seem intimidating to both coaches and athletes, but it is a great training tool for improving your athletes’ coordination, speed and explosiveness both on the platform and on the field.

At the completion of this clinic, you will be familiar with 1) coaching key aspects of the snatch, including the set up, liftoff, transition, pull, catch, and recovery, 2) identifying common performance errors and using the proper cues and/or corrective drills and exercises to alleviate these errors, and 3) performing the snatch and snatch partials.

This clinic is intended for scholastic weightlifting coaches and other sports coaches interested in utilizing the snatch in their athletes’ conditioning program. The clinic is open to all, but is provided FREE for scholastic coaches in the Gainesville area.

Space is limited to allow for proper social distancing. Please reserve your spot quickly!

If you are not able to join us in-person, the clinic will be presented virtually or on-demand. For virtual attendance, please sign up through the online store and specify that you will be attending virtually.
