PER NATIONAL COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION RULES, SOME INTERCOLLEGIATE SPORTS HAVE DISCRETIONARY PERIODS WHERE ATHLETIC PARTICIPATION IN THE STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROGRAM IS VOLUNTARY. AS A RESULT, SOME OF THESE ATHLETES MAY TURN TO PERSONAL TRAINERS OR SPORTS PERFORMANCE SPECIALISTS TO DESIGN AND DIRECT THEIR CONDITIONING PROGRAMS DURING THIS PERIOD. WE WANTED TO FIND OUT FROM OUR COACHING PANEL THEIR THOUGHTS ON HOW THEY HANDLE THIS SITUATION.
The College Coaches Corner provides practical information on a variety of topics that college coaches experience daily in directing a strength and conditioning program.
