Physical and mental development of athletes is achieved by prioritizing training options with the highest transference to their chosen sport. Training programs are evaluated and structured based on the physical qualities and movements inherent to each sport, and the positions/events within a sport.
Emphasis is placed on the evaluation and correction of mechanics pertaining to movements found both in the sport and in the training process. Programs are structured in a progressive manner which leads to sport form at the most crucial times, targeting both the short term and long term goals of the team and the individual athletes. Great emphasis is placed on stressor management while working closely with sport coaching staffs to monitor global load. Effective training means and methods are selected which have the least net
cost to the athlete. The Strength and Conditioning department works closely with the Athletic Training department as a unified system to develop plans for injury prevention, and to more effectively rehabilitate athletes back to play. A high priority is placed on injury prevention via proper exercise selection, load selection, volume selection, sequencing; as well as preventative work targeting general prevention, individual prevention, and specific issues inherent to each individual sport.
The Strength and Conditioning staff’s ever evolving philosophies are based on accepted principles, without being bound to any one system of practice, where everything exists as a potential tool to be used as best fit based on all contexts and needs relating to a team, and the individual athlete.
