Everything Old is New Again: Why Basics are Best in High School Strength & Conditioning
by Missy Mitchell-McBeth, MSEd, CSCS
In today's social media era it can be easy to become misguided and believe that what you see elite athletes doing is appropriate for athletes of low training age. Spoiler alert: IT IS NOT. This presentation will cover why copying your nearest Power 5 school's program won't work; and what will. You will leave with age-appropriate progressions to incorporate in your training program tomorrow.
12:15 PM - 1:00 PM

Barbell Fundamentals
by Tyler Morrison, MA, CSCS, RSCC*D

The idea of Barbell Fundamentals is to provide a better understanding of the barbell and various specialty bars in order to enhance the practitioners exercise library. This can be beneficial for those new to the weight room or those that have been in the game for some time. Building your knowledge base of movements allows for the coach or practitioner to have a better understanding of various progressions and regressions with the bar. Sometimes we may get used to utilizing the same movements each cycle with minimal variety. One size does not necessarily fit all when it comes to the weight room.

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

• Scaling - "meet them where they are, then move forward"

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM
