The Use of Wearable Technology in Strength and Conditioning
by Aaron Duvall, MS, CSCS

The growth of the wearable technology industry and its utility in collegiate athletics has been exponential over the past several years. As more and more companies develop products that help quantify the stresses that athlete's are exposed to in practices, matches, or even daily life, it's important to delineate what makes a product appropriate and effective versus being a dust collector or fancy recruiting tool.  Strategies for application of collected data from wearable technologies can be advantageous towards the product of what sport staffs give to their athletes from both a training effectiveness and safety of training standpoint. Coach Duvall will be discussing the efficacy of these technologies from an athlete training and monitoring point of view.

Long-Term Athletic Development: Considerations of Growth and Development
by Zachary Gillen, MS, CSCS

Recent position statements regarding long-term athletic development have suggested we need to understand more regarding the natural mechanisms by which muscles get stronger. This presentation will define what long-term athletic development is, and what we already know regarding training programs for youth. Then we will examine the natural growth and development of skeletal muscle in young males and females to understand how natural growth and development influences muscle function. Understanding these growth and development-related influences on muscle function will provide a greater understanding of how best to design and implement
age-appropriate long-term athletic development programs in young males and females .

2:50 PM - 3:50 PM
Training Program Development and Progression in Collegiate Power-Endurance Athletes
by Marissa Bello, MS, CSCS

This talk will review current methods of strength and conditioning with power-endurance athletes, with a focus on collegiate soccer players. The session will cover both in-season and off-season training programs. Evidence-based examples will be used to demonstrate the rationale behind the different training methods. Practical applications will be provided for attendees to better assess implementation in their own programs.
