Strength & Conditioning

Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Strength and Conditioning Department to encourage each student athlete to strive for excellence. Our goal is to promote and foster an atmosphere that is conducive to the intellectual, personal and physical development of each individual. Developing a strong relationship with each student athlete is critical in motivating him or her to realize their potential. We are dedicated to providing equal opportunities to all student athletes and contributing to the total educational experience. Our primary objectives are to teach the proper fundamentals of strength and conditioning, improve athletic performance, and reduce the risk of injury.
