Baltimore, Md. - Loyola College in Maryland will welcome high school and college strength and conditioning coaches for a one-day workshop on Saturday, July 21.
The program, developed by Robert Taylor, head strength and conditioning coach for Loyola's Division I Greyhounds, will combine classroom presentations and outdoor demonstrations designed to help improve participants' knowledge of core training, speed enhancement, agility and reaction training, program design and strength training philosophy, as well as techniques and approaches tailored to injured and rehabilitating athletes.
"As high school and college athletics become increasingly competitive, properly designed strength and conditioning programs are critical to the success of any athlete or team," says Taylor, who, along with representatives from Stony Brook University, Princeton University and several training organizations, will serve as one of the workshop's presenters.
Taylor and the other presenters will discuss strategies for improving programs as well as enhancing successful programs. Participants will learn how to identify sport-specific and individual training needs with an emphasis on safety and efficiency.
Workshop sponsors, who will have equipment available for demonstrations, include PowerCrank, VertiMax, Fitness Resource and Polar heart rate monitoring systems. Muscle Milk and Power Lift will sponsor the workshop's lunch.
Clinic participants are eligible for continuing education credits from organizations including the National Strength and Conditioning Association, National Strength Professionals Association, National Athletic Trainers' Association and other accrediting agencies.
The cost for the eight-hour workshop is $50 ($30 for students), and includes lunch. For more information or to register, please call 410-617-5372
