I’ve been in weightlifting for over 25 years (circa 1996), and USAW has undergone tremendous changes in order to grow…and it must continue to evolve.

Hopefully some history can provide clarity instead of fearmongering. Sit tight…

In the 2000s, as athletes on the National team, my teammates and I had to deal with a Board that behaved like “good old boys”. Several people left the sport all together because of how the leadership was governing (or not) the sport, and how poorly some were treated.

From my recollections, at the 2008 Nationals we had the annual “Board of Governors” meeting (Board updates, etc for the membership) and in front of the USAW Board and USOC lawyers, (I’m guesstimating) at least 90% of coaches/athletes/tech/volunteers in the room voted “no confidence” and called for the Board’s resignation. The Board refused and brought in lawyers. So instead of change, we received threats by the USOC that they would decertify our sport and as such we wouldn’t take athletes to the Beijing Olympics! Those Board members got to stay through the end of that year, against the wishes of a large percentage of the membership.

USAW was forced, yes, FORCED to restructure by the USOC. A new Board was voted in at the end 2008. I was elected to that Board as the Athlete Advisory Council Representative, where I served to advocate for athlete rights to the USOC, in addition to my duties on our Board.

I served from 2009-2016, and I can speak to those years. I’m not here to represent, nor to speak for anyone else but myself and my years of experience...

Day 1 on the Board was a bit of a shock to learn that our finances had been destroyed through poor investments, and poor Board governance, partly due to no oversight. We were scraping by going into that Olympic Quad (2009-2012). Some real lean years. We literally had no money to roster some international teams. Our membership got creative, crowdfunding, shirt selling, you name it. I’m sure there are Jr World Team shirts floating around still.

We had new Bylaws that were given to us by the USOC, a small office staff, no money, but we had lofty goals and lots of grit to see things through.

Change for us was inevitable, and I’m so proud of where our sport is today because we embraced change!

Weightlifting is so different since I started in 1996, and with all due respect, Masters Weightlifting is a throwback to that era.

Masters Weightlifting proudly started here in the US, and yes, in the past it hasn’t received the respect it deserves. That’s not the case now, and It hasn’t been for YEARS. And, I know for a fact that the door was open and a hand extended to the Masters’ committee when I was on the Board, but we were constantly met with pushback, and NO TRANSPARENCY regarding finances.

The vote for change/growth is tomorrow, and we’re at a crucial moment for athletes & coaches for a vote of INCLUSION to the organization.

I’m hearing a lot of those same catch phrases and words used by the “old guard” when we were trying to make significant changes for the organization while I was on the Board.

I would hear things like, “they’re taking it away from you”, “you’ll have no say”, “it’s tradition”, “the special part will go away”, etc.

These are scare tactics! The approach taken has been purposely misleading and bordering on bullying to the Masters community. It’s unprofessional and unacceptable. That is not real leadership. Change MUST happen, it desperately needs it for Masters to continue to grow.

What’s “traditional”…we used to lift in Ramada Inn hotel banquet rooms with a platform laid on a carpet and our teammates and a few friends in the audience to cheer us on. But I don’t find that “special”.

We hosted the largest meet ever (~1K lifters), hosted the World Championship (twice), improved the production value for events, amongst other changes. In other words, USAW set the standard for the World. Now that’s “special”! Change was good.

Some folks didn’t want to, but we embraced Crossfit and we’ve gotten champions from there! It grew our membership and talent pool. Change was good.

We have Olympic medalists and highest placing (4th) for a male since Mario Martinez in ‘88! Change was good.

I can add so much more, but it’s too long to write 8 years worth of work.

But, every now and again I do wonder…where would we be if we didn’t allow for change? But I don’t sit on this too long because I know change can be so good.

I get it. Change is scary (and not without stumbles), but you don’t need to be because it can lead to so many other amazing opportunities to make our sport even better. I know this, because I lived it!

The organization you know today is light years ahead from what it was when I came into it. Things won’t happen overnight. Join USAW so that you get the same experience our other athletes get to enjoy. Things will not improve if you don’t embrace change!

Posted @withregram • @datadrivenperformance Communication is 🔑 ⠀

This is probably not a shocking piece of advice for anyone but communication is key in any coaching relationship. When things are not going well, it feels way easier to just not check-in or avoid your coach because you figure "well I didn't stick to the plan anyway so I don't need to tell them" but in fact, these might be the times when it's most important to communicate and check-in with your coach. They can make adjustments to your program, possibly provide suggestions, and keep you accountable for getting back into a good routine of things. ⠀

I really doubt any life-changing lessons were made during this photo but I do appreciate my weightlifting coach @barbarianbarbell even when I am not saying much 😅 .⠀
