Abstract

IN ANY HIGH SCHOOL, THERE IS A VITAL PLACE FOR A CERTIFIED STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING SPECIALIST (CSCS) IN ALL ATHLETIC PROGRAMS. THE CSCS WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO IMPACT UPON ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE IN A WHOLE HOST OF WAYS AND IN A VARIETY OF DOMAINS. HOWEVER, IN MANY CASES THE COACH IS UNDERUSED AND THE ROLE LIMITED MERELY TO THE WEIGHT ROOM. BY EXPANDING HIS OR HER SPHERE OF INFLUENCE, A CSCS CAN BECOME AN INTEGRAL AND INDISPENSABLE PART OF AN ATHLETIC PROGRAM.
