STRENGTH & CONDITIONING GOALS Injury Prevention Football is a contact sport that involves the risk for injury. The primary goal of our strength program is to decrease the risk for injury and allow the athletes to display their talents on the field.
STRENGTH & CONDITIONING GOALS Increase athletic potential as a high school football player Strength training will not magically improve football specific skills. But the goal of the program is to increase team power, explosiveness, and speed through the function of raw muscular strength.
STRENGTH & CONDITIONING GOALS Increase self-confidence and mental toughness The cornerstone of our strength and conditioning PHILOSOPHY is intensity. This creates a workout that is physically and mentally challenging. Teams that can remain mentally tough when challenges arise come out on top.

Facts About Faith in People Most people dont have faith in themselves. Most people dont have someone who has faith in them. Most people can tell when someone has faith in them. Most people will do anything to live up to your faith in them.
