Speakers

The Importance of Qualified and Certified Strength & Conditioning Coaches: A Message to Athletic Directors and Principals
by Tobias J. Jacobi CSCS, RSCC*D
This presentation addresses the needs and reasoning for having properly certified, trained, and qualified individuals in a High School Strength & Conditioning setting. It will address the legal, physical, coaching, and teaching benefits a qualified coach can bring to a school and programs. It will give information to those attending to be able to articulate the sensitive nature and importance of having a qualified individual in this position.

Sets, Reps, and Fatigue for the Tactical Athlete
by Christine Coniglio, MA, CSCS
What you put into training is what you get out. Fitness outcomes are often the focus of program design, forgetting about the fatigue that is associated with training. A closer look at fitness and fatigue when designing programs for tactical athletes.

Off-season Training – Implementation and Challenges
by Jeremy Gentles, PhD, CSCS
Athletes gone for the summer? Sport coach always want athletes game ready? Hours limited by the NCAA? The off-season should be a time to focus on more general athlete development but many obstacles often stand in the way. This discussion will outline the appropriate off-season focus for strength and conditioning and how to deal with common obstacles.

Strength and Conditioning and Private Sports Performance Training: Making Relationships Work
by Julian Amedee, CSCS
This talk will discuss the difference between a strength coach and a sports performance coach and the divide between the two sub-fields. It will address how each can help the other and will focus on how sports performance coach and strength coach cooperation will result in building a better athlete.

Nutrition and Body Composition: What and When to Eat to Promote Muscle Size and Decrease Fat Mass
by Christopher MacDonald, PhD
This presentation will cover the basics and best practices to promote muscle size and to decrease fat mass in practical settings. We will delve into why decreasing fat mass may have just as much value as stimulating muscle growth for performance outcome measures as well as how to achieve that goal. All information presented is gleaned from researchers and data, over decades of work, on eating and training to improve body composition, as well as applied and anecdotal examples and outcomes.

Lunch (on your own)

Application of Competitive Games into Program Design
by Korrey Hammond, CSCS,*D, NSCA-CPT,*D

Applied Athlete Monitoring and Performance Analytics on a Low (or no) Budget
by Chris Bailey, PhD, CSCS, RSCC & Tim McInnis, PhD, CSCS
Several options and methods to design and implement athlete monitoring programs on a low or even non-existent budget will be discussed. Special attention will be given to the production of “Actionable Analytics,” while providing applied examples from actual data collected over the course of multiple years from collegiate athletes. This session will also introduce some basics of web-based data collection, relational databases, statistical computing and data visualization techniques through various free or very economical software programs (SQL, R, MS Excel, etc.). This session will also provide a demonstration of various instruments, methods, and techniques in athlete monitoring utilizing a “hands-on” learning approach where attendee participation is strongly encouraged. This session will close with suggestions for implementing changes based upon findings from the data.

Georgia College Sports Performance Program: Three Pillars of Bobcat Performance
by Mike Martino, PhD, CSCS,*D & Jacob Grazer, PhD, CSCS
This presentation will provide an overview of the sports performance program at Georgia College in Milledgeville, Georgia.

The first pillar will address Athlete Assessment, the second pillar will discuss Programming, and the final pillar will address Athlete Monitoring.
