OWNZ Talent Identification Program
The “TI” program has been established to create a pathway to present the sport of Olympic Weightlifting to Schools.This program provides exposure for the sport to students who may otherwise never have thought of Olympic Weightlifting as a potential sport to participate in.
It’s a starting point to link Clubs and Schools and/or fosters current Club-School relationships.

OWNZ wants to build incentives for Clubs to create a link with local Secondary Schools, so we have designed the "TI" Program to increase the exposure of our sport to school aged kids.
There are also two ZKC Weight sets up for grabs! One for the South Island Club and one for the North Island Club that gets the most students through the Program and on record. 

Club Managers please stay tuned for more information on our Talent ID Program being sent out to you shortly!
