Strength & Athletic Developing (Non-Olympic Lift) Teams

The ONLY purpose for listing these teams is to reassure other coaches that safe, productive, and efficient training programs, such as the one we promote at, is not unheard of. We are not attempting to imply that these teams are better or have better athletes than other teams. Our point is simply this: There are several strength programs in traditional sports that do not use Olympic lifts. Discrepancies may occur at schools in which one particular team uses Olympic lifting and others do not use them. Such is the case at University of Maryland, for example, where the basketball teams do not use Olympic lifts but the football team does. These teams are currently using or have used a non-olympic approach. Please help to keep this list accurate. If you are aware of mistakes or changes at a particular school or team please let us know.
