Announcement: 2017 Strength Training Partnership

Lacrosse season is right around the corner, and I am pleased to announce a new partnership with Warehouse Performance Institute. As I am sure many are aware, our club status does not allow us access to the High School weight room facilities. And a proper strength training regimen is important to the success of any Lacrosse program. WPI has made themselves available to help us meet this need. 

This program is 100% optional to all players. However I highly recommend participation if possible. ​If players do attend these workouts, they will be excused from preseason conditioning. We had near 100% participation from our Seniors who completed a test run with WPI this past week. The feedback I received from them, and what I witnessed, was great and indicates WPI will be a great asset to our team. It will be challenging workouts, and the trainers intensity is what we need to accomplish our goal of a 2017 State Championship!

WPI Background:
  • Head Trainers:
       • Mike McCoy- Former Football player at the university of Alabama (Roll Tide!) and trainer at IMG Academy
       • Ryan Romano - Former D1 wrestler at West Virginia and Hoover Alumni 
  • Address: 
       • Off of Morgan road in Hoover.
       • 4010 Farr Rd (Rear Entrance) Birmingham, AL 35022 
  • Start date: Training for everyone next week, Nov 14th. We will find a makeup date for our Preseason meeting on 11/17
  • Length: November through the end of January. 
  • Sessions: Players have the option of attending 2x a week or 3x a week. I recommend 3x a week for this first 4 week period. Sessions last for one hour. Only workout clothes and gym shoes are required. 
  • Payment Plan: Money will be due at the first training session, and at every 4 weeks so can maintain flexibility in conjunction with our normal practices.  
  • Cost: $75 per ​player for 8 sessions. $100 per player for 10 sessions. Cash or checks are accepted.
