The University of York Barbell Club was formed in 2014. It is comprised of two main lifting groups - Powerlifting and Olympic Weightlifting. Our aim as a club is to bring together both Olympic Weightlifters and Powerlifters from across campus into a united club where members can take part in both coached and informal training sessions (in both disciplines). Throughout the year we also attend various regional competitions and are currently looking to build a team which can represent the University of York in both local and national competitions against other universities.

Lifters of all abilities are welcome to join!
