Strength & Conditioning

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to develop young women and men of discipline and grit who seek to improve themselves in critical life and athletic traits such as competitiveness, a consistent work ethic and self-motivation. We seek to accomplish this mission across the spectrum of every type of student-athlete and in the spirit of the Viatorian mission.

Philosophy:

To foster an inclusive and enthusiastic environment where education, safety, and an understanding of basic strength and conditioning principles are our main priorities.  Instead of focusing on sport-specific only protocols, we intend to take a unified and holistic approach where all athletic qualities are trained.
