We teach the values of hard, intelligent, consistent work, while empowering the athlete to significantly increase their performance capability, decrease injury potential and develop all components of their athleticism.
"Building Better Athletes"
We do not train athletes to become bodybuilders, powerlifters or Olympic style weightlifters; rather, we train athletes to become better athletes. We train athletes to develop the components of athleticism; strength, power, flexibility, speed, agility, footwork, endurance,metabolic condition, body composition, mental focus and motivation. ◦We utilize the principle of specificity, and therefore use free weight training as much as possible. Free weights allow athletes to move athletically, and not in a fixed motion pattern like most machines. We train movements and thereby train the muscles that produce these movements.
◦We utilize explosive power training (plyometrics, split snatch, power shrugs, split cleans, presses, jerks, and power squats). Athletes with great power and explosiveness, for the most part, dominate athletics. With all other things being equal, the athlete with the greatest power and explosiveness will dominate his opponent. We follow a sequential progression, in order to maximize safety and optimize success, for all explosive power movements.

Use of proper technique in strength and conditioning programs is imperative to the safety and progress of every athlete. When this becomes the entire focus of the strength coach I feel the program is at risk. The development of Functional technique should be the goal with the focus on strenght devlopment.…Continue
