MARQUETTE — Registration is still open for the Olympic Pro Day being held this Saturday in the Superior Dome. Registration for the combine-style event is free and can be found by visiting teamusaprodays.com. To participate, athletes must be between the ages of 17-24-years-old. A parent or guardian should accompany athletes under 18.
The Team USA Pro Days series is a joint effort between USA Weightlifting, USA Rugby, USA Cheer, US Rowing, USA Bobsled/Skeleton and USA Triathlon in an effort to expand their talent pools.
The Pro Day is one of six that will be taking place across the country. Athletes identified for their potential talent will be contacted by a National Governing Body to discuss their next step in training with their sport.
“At USA Weightlifting, we are always working to expand our sport,” said Director of Grassroots Development Suzy Sanchez. “We’re excited to discover the depth and range of talent on our university campuses and introduce new athletes to our weightlifting community.”
