Published on 2/15/2019
For additional information  Click Here 

Good Day Athletes, Warriors, and this message is specially for parents, guardians, mentors, and coaches of Young Student-Athletes.

Here is Part 3 of the 3-part series from Coach Ryan Faer on the pressing need for qualified Strength and Conditioning Coaches for All High School Sports programs and why you and your community cannot afford to do without these dedicated coaches on your staff. 

The reasons may be obvious to you but it's always good to go into detail. 

The full 3-part series is available to all members. Thanks and let me know if you found the article helpful.

- The strength and conditioning coach, at times, is the only coach on staff that interacts with nearly every athlete, every day.

- This exposure, combined with the traits needed to be instilled by the coach in order for the athlete to be successful in the weight room, give the strength coach a unique platform/vehicle.

- In the very least there needs to be a standard of education/knowledge, safety, and professionalism for coaches working with athletes in the weight room.

In speaking with another strength coach recently, the topic of job responsibilities came up. Strength and conditioning professionals tend to wear a multitude of “hats”, oftentimes shouldering a greater load of responsibilities than what is listed in their official job description.

 During this discussion, the question was posed,

“Of all of the hats that we wear, which ones are most important? Sets and reps, counseling, recovery, nutrition?”

 For me, personally, it's the platform that we get as strength coaches that gets me out of bed each day. It's the opportunity to set a positive example and teach lessons that go beyond the field and weight room that really draws me deeper into the profession.

Any coach, though, can use this platform?—?from the strength coach, to the lacrosse coach, or even the athletic trainer… It wasn't until I spent a full season professional baseball that I realized what seems to separate the strength coach when it comes to the inherently great platform to impact the athletes. Keep reading.......
