The England Committee is a formal sub-committee of British Weight Lifting and has been established to ensure an integrated approach to the development and growth of the sport in England across all levels and age groups. The England Group will provide expertise and oversight as to the work BWL undertakes in England and can both check and challenge current strategy around growing and developing the sport in England and influence and propose future strategies.
The England Group is there to support the Performance Committee in their responsibilities for strategic matters and issues relating to the development programme for Weight Lifting and Para-powerlifting in England, as well as the elite England lifters, ensuring maximum achievement at all future Commonwealth Games and other Championships requiring English representation, as well as having maximum representation in GBR squads.
The England Group will support the Commercial and Development Committee and advise on all aspects of the development of the sport in England, including competitions, membership, talent pathways, ensuring full alignment with the overall GBR Development pathway and elite programme.
As it is not a policy or decision-making body, the England Group has no mandate, unless otherwise requested by the BWL Board to select Teams, Training Squads or Support staff at whatever level or age group.
It is currently made up of:
A Metcalfe (BWL CEO & Acting Chair)
S Martin (England Talent Manager)
