Reminder: Free Summer Training Begins June 17


Free summer training for athletes in grades 6 through 12 by strength and conditioning coach Dan Nichols starts June 17 at the upper school.

Nichols, who has been working with Collegiate athletes over the past six months, will offer sessions from 9 a.m to 10:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. from Monday through Thursday. An athlete may attend as many sessions as he or she chooses.

Many Collegiate coaches have summer plans for training sessions over the next three months so that our athletes will get sharper and more skilled.

DSC_5033For the sessions with Nichols expect to work hard, sweat hard, and give your all, but they will be designed with fun in mind, knowing that the work will pay dividends in August, or November, or February–whenever the next season starts.

Nichols will offer training in speed, agility, strength, power, and conditioning. Athletes can come twice a day if they wish, every day, every other day, once a week–whatever suits their schedule. Obviously, the more regular the sessions, the more immediate the results. Coaches of individual sports will communicate details about their sessions soon.

For varsity athletes, formal training sessions will begin August 12, and specific details will be posted on the website later in the summer.
