Athletic Director JISD
The Jefferson Bulldogs will host a strength and conditioning camp Monday-Thursday, June 5-July 21, 2017, at the athletic fieldhouse at the high school. Jefferson ISD Strength & Conditioning Coordinator is Coach Michael Downs will be monitoring and overseeing the activity. The camp is for all Jefferson Independent School District students. The week of July 3rd, camp will not be in session. Also, the camp is free for all JISD students.
Run by the Jefferson coaching staff, this program is designed to give our athletes the opportunity to gain a competitive edge through strength and conditioning. All athletes will benefit from this program and are encouraged to attend.
Every athlete will participate in a dynamic warm-up to develop joint stability and flexibility, as well as balance, coordination, and body awareness. This will be done before moving into the weight room for strength training or for speed, agility, and quickness development stations.
Each of these developmental sessions will last approximately 45 minutes.
The Summer Training Program is voluntary and does not guarantee a position or place on a team. Players will be divided into groups according to age and position.
Emphasis for younger campers (this does include elementary and middle school) is basic development which will be a big asset in the avoidance of injuries and an intermediate to advanced drills for older campers to prepare them for competition.
“By exposing our campers to proper techniques and drills, we hope to instill a burning desire to become great athletes,” Downs said. “And we’ll definitely have lots of fun in the process.”
