Strength.
Speed.
Mobility.

Three full-time Sports Performance Coaches and a 5,500 sq. ft. training facility deliver a strength and conditioning program that rivals collegiate offerings. Our individualized approach means that each athlete receives advanced data analysis and a customized training program to foster power, strength, speed, and mobility. Tailored profiles establish baselines, track progression from year to year, and provide comparative data so athletes can understand their physical role within the context of their team. Our Sports Performance Coaches use these critical data points to develop a foundation with each student-athlete and help athletes grow into advanced levels of performance as they continue their athletic careers.

 

Injury prevention is a core component of our Sports Performance philosophy, but when injuries do happen, our Sports Performance staff work closely with our three full-time Athletic Trainers, who help athletes rehab, recover, and safely return to play. Our state-of-the-art athletic training facility enables athletes to receive immediate attention and professional care without leaving campus.
