UWF to Host Strength and Conditioning Coaches Clinic
PENSACOLA, Fla. – University of West Florida Director of Strength and Conditioning Kent Morgan is pleased to announce the First Annual UWF Strength and Conditioning Clinic. It will be held at the UWF Field House on May 9 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The clinic is designed to give high school coaches of all sports a hands-on learning experience. It will also provide practical information on current concepts in the strength and conditioning field as it relates each sport.
Topics to be discussed will be training the multi-sport athlete, developing explosive strength and power, linear and lateral acceleration techniques, lower body strength and power, effective program design, movement preparation, injury reduction techniques, coaching the Olympic lifts for maximal benefit, core training, and much more.
“We’re excited about having the opportunity to share our strength and conditioning knowledge and experience with coaches from all around the region,” Morgan said. “In addition to extensive instruction, the clinic will hopefully provide an opportunity to develop relationships between our staff and each participant.”
In addition to Coach Morgan, who previously served as Assistant Strength Coach at Texas A&M and TCU, the speakers will include veteran collegiate strength and conditioning coaches Ben Pollard and Raphael Ruiz. Coach Pollard, a Master Strength and Conditioning Coach, served as the Director of Strength and Conditioning at the University of Alabama, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, TCU, and Sam Houston State and has coached athletes at the collegiate level for 24 years. Raphael Ruiz is the owner of the sports performance company, All Sports Elite Training Systems, and is the Director of Strength and Conditioning at the University of Tampa.
