Mission

The mission of this strength and conditioning program is to prepare athletes to adapt and thrive under the stress load of practicing and competing in football - with specific consideration of the relevant biomotor abilities, metabolic demands, psychological factors and injury risk associated with the sport.

Top priority is to improve high speed, loaded and unloaded, total body coordination and mechanical efficiency. We will imitate the demands of football by striving to produce as many maximal or near maximal contractions as often as possible in training. Our team must be conditioned to handle and thrive at a relentless, up tempo pace. Everything we do in training is done to help the athletes more efficiently execute the movement requirements of their sport. We will demand discipline, intensity and intelligent effort while we work towards improving physical capabilities. We will cultivate a high energy environment where enthusiasm and competition will flourish.
