USA Weightlifting website lists certified coaches in your area.

You could always find one in another state even if you can only get there once a month.

Private Clubs? Different federations?

I am about 2 hours from the location where Rippetoe is the President. Maybe I should just try and make it out once a month or something.

Sure there are other clubs that aren't listed I'm sure. You might try google as well.

Sweet! I emailed my local president -Rippetoe- and he hooked me up with someone 10 minutes away. I am pumped. sigh* still have broken fingers for a few more weeks.
