Strength and conditioning plays a large role in an athlete’s workout regimen and more importantly, success in their chosen sports. Even more so, it is a well known fact that the success of an athlete relies heavily on the training that takes place when he/she are not in season. It is our goal to develop and facilitate a 10-week, once a week program designed for student-athletes to teach proper techniques and training habits. The program will be offered to all Hanover Township 8th grade students. Athletes in the program will focus on technique, not weight for the four core lifts performed at the high school level, along with agility exercises, leadership activities and proper stretching and muscle recovery exercises.
