We are pleased to announce a new strength and conditioning program available to all high school interscholastic student athletes. The program is under the direction of Tim Schilcher, an experienced trainer who holds five certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. He also has experience in the field of physical therapy and has served as a personal trainer for 20 years. Coach Schilcher, who is assisted by Brandon Piefer, has developed specialized training for individual sports, and in some cases, specific positions. His overall goal is to help athletes safely reach their goals for optimal performance, while educating them about lifelong healthy habits.
