Strength & Conditioning is available to boys and girls in all grade levels. The program is not a “weight lifting” or “body building” program. It is a comprehensive instructional program that includes several key components of personal fitness and athleticism.
The physical aspects of the program include resistance training, cardiovascular endurance, speed training, agility training, and flexibility. These things not only help our students perform at a higher level, but also aid in preventing injuries, which will allow our students to remain on the competitive field of play.
From a mental aspect, our students learn the importance of hard work, discipline, and dedication. Each student is held accountable for not only their own work, but for that of their teammates as well. Each student is expected to be on time for all workouts, and work their hardest to get as much from his or her opportunity as possible.
If you are having concerns about allowing your child to participate in strength & conditioning workouts, please read the linked article below which was published April 2008 in Pediatrics, Official Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
