Strength and Conditioning
In addition to strength training, the student-athlete is also expected to participate in speed, agility and conditioning (SAC) training. These programs are also a collaborative effort, again focusing on the needs of the various teams in terms of the specificity of speed and agility required as well as the metabolic demands of the sport. Student-athletes are instructed on the proper mechanics of sprinting including starts, acceleration and top end speed. They are also instructed on how to change direction both laterally and linearly. Specific plyometric drills are also be included to enhance the student-athletes’ speed and agility. Student-athletes will also perform specific conditioning routines based on the sports and the metabolic demands it places on its participants. By utilizing these programs the student athletes at ACIT will be better protected and prepared for their upcoming sports season.
