Strength & Conditioning

The philosophy of the St. Andrew's Strength and conditioning program is to cultivate our student-athletes physically so that when it is time to compete, they are able to perform at their best.
We accomplish this goal by encouraging our student-athletes, who are not participating in a sport during any given trimester (fall, winter, or spring), to take part in our intensive off-season program. In-season athletes are also welcome to join per their own volition or upon their coach’s request. We currently meet Monday through Friday for 45-60 minutes beginning at 7:00 am.
Each day is comprised of a comprehensive and dynamic workout offering various exercises, which encompass the entire body and its different energy systems.
While each session has an assorted focus, we provide the necessary methods required to become a complete athlete. Our program design includes activities that positively impact overall strength, explosiveness, speed, agility, balance, coordination, stability, flexibility, mobility and endurance.
We believe in order to be a successful athlete, one must be a functional athlete. In order to achieve our goals, we break the program into three distinct blocks, each lasting three or four weeks, throughout any given trimester.
Beginning with a foundational phase (four weeks), we are able to progress into intermediate exercises (four weeks), which culminates with a performance phase during the final three weeks in preparation for the athlete’s upcoming season.
This same model is employed and repeated with the beginning of each trimester. Our ultimate ambition as an Athletics program is to compete for SPC championships, and we firmly believe that an effective strength and conditioning component is the first step in achieving this objective.
