HOLD OURSELVES ACCOUNTABLE
Our program has been shaped and guided by the football
coaching staff and GHS strength and conditioning coach Craig
Jensen. Some of the schools from which we have obtained info:
UALBANY, UNION, SYRACUSE, COLGATE, VILLANOVA,
CONNECTICUT, MICHIGAN STATE, RUTGERS;
QUEENSBURY, BURNT HILLS, SCHALMONT, SHAKER



BUILDING BETTER ATHLETES: Our training program builds
strength, stamina, agility and speed. We build core strength and
flexibility in the abdomen, hips and lower back. We prioritize ground-based
athletic movements that train the whole athlete. We perform agility/speed
drills and Strongman activities. We emphasize proper form and
movement before encouraging athletes to perform heavy lifts.
AVOIDING INJURY: Studies in all sports continue to prove the advantages
of proper strength and conditioning. With the heightened awareness of the
risks of football, participation in our program greatly reduces the
chance of injury during the season.
PROMOTING TEAM: Players will push each other through team
competitions, timed workouts and competitive goals they set each
workout. They push each other and protect each other just as they will do on
the football field. Certain sessions will include football skill
development and conclude with team meals or other team functions


ENSURING PROPER PREPARATION: Training at the ‘Y’,
in your basement, or even with some of the personal trainers
and coaches out there will not meet all of the above criteria.
Our program ensures each player will excel through
the rigors of organized football.
HOLDING OURSELVES ACCOUNTABLE: No more are
players “off the radar”. When a player is with us, we know he
is preparing. If he is not with us, we know to contact him.
WEIGHT TESTING DATES: November 17 – December 4 (Baseline)
 February 23 – March 6 (Lifting Competition Weekend)
 May 26 – June 5 (Pre Black and Blue Camp)
 August 10-13 (Heading into camp)
