Finals are over and student-athletes are enjoying the sun of summer. Time to hit the weight room and become a better athlete.
Wolverines have had a few passing tournaments this spring. Highlight thus far has been the Seaside passing tournament where our Varsity group took 1st place and our JV group took 3rd place overall. We had some bumps along the way but we can all say we are better at our individual jobs now.
One of the most important pieces to a successful football program is the strength and conditioning proponent. The summer Strength and Conditioning program is a vital piece of the puzzle and the base building block to our success in the Fall. Injury prevention is our number one priority. Last summer we had more than double the numbers in the weight room as the previous 4-5 years and magically our injuries dropped.
If an athlete is serious about their training, they can expect to gain 6-10% in their overall strength through our summer program. Some younger athletes will even see greater gains. In order to maximize our athletes gains over the summer they must really pay attention to what they are eating. Here are a few guidelines to help maximize your results.
Summer Training Tips
The Wolverines took 2 squads over to Marist on Thursday June 2nd and played 7 on 7 and Run Game scheme vs. Marist and Harrisburg. The Wolverines showed that they were hungry for competition. All athletes showed great signs of improvement from last year and determination to get better for this next fall. Next up, the Wolverines Varsity 7 on 7 team will take on 15 other PIL and Metro League schools at Lakeridge HS this coming Sunday at 9 am.
