Strength & Conditioning
To be the best person, teammate, & program you can be. First, we will be the best then we will be first. Treat others as Christ would treat them.
We treat everyone & thing we come in contact with, with the upmost levels of respect. Treat others as you would like to be treated & things the way you would want your possessions treated.
We will be willing to accept the responsibility of being held to the highest standards as an individual & group.
We will execute all tasks assigned with maximum effort, focus, and passion. We will get the job done!
- Do No Harm – This is accomplished by following a properly organized, physiological appropriate, scientifically sound, athlete-centered comprehensive strength & conditioning program. The student we work with are someone’s child, this is at the for front of all our decisions.
- Move Well – This is addressed in 2 ways. First, we assess our athlete’s with our version of a movement screen. In the screen we evaluate the weaknesses of our athletes and then provide a program to aid in minimizing those weaknesses. The second way we address this tenant is through our technical progressions programs. Within this program, we stress Quality Over Quantity. Technical efficiency in both strength & movement exercises is crucial to success. Regressions, variations, and modifications are all implemented appropriately.
- Move Strong – This is accomplished with the implementation of our training levels system. In this program we prescribe a training age appropriate strength training protocol for each athlete. The application of proper training stimulus at the proper training age allows for optimal strength development.
- Move Fast – This tenant applies to both strength & movement exercises. Once technical proficiency is achieved then attention is directed towards performing all movements as fast as possible. In the weight room this is achieved with the usage of velocity based training tools. Outside the weight room this is addressed within our speed program.
