Our athletics department is committed to building champions through academic achievement, athletic excellence, and national recognition of student-athletes, teams, and programs.
Job responsibility: The Strength and Conditioning Coach is responsible for establishing and maintaining a strength and conditioning program for all sports, with the three major goals of improving athletic performance, reducing athletic injuries, and teaching lifelong fitness and movement skills.
Requirements and Qualifications: Typical job listings for a college-level strength and conditioning coach require a B.A. degree in a related field such as exercise science or human performance, but a master's degree is always preferred.
Benefits and Opportunities: The average pay for a Strength And Conditioning Coach is $16.44 per hour. The median Strength and Conditioning Coach has a base pay of $39,931. Salaries generally range from $26k to $62k. The median bonus is $2,046. I believe that the overall benefit is being able to make an athlete a better image of what he thinks he is. You get to teach, critique, and help grow a young mans life into something he did not think he could be.
Achievements: As an intern, I learned that things are different on the other side as a coach. As a coach I did not know how much paper work was needed to be done week in week out for personal records and different things that come along with it. It is also great getting to know your athlete and working with them on a day to day basis. This creates a great bond that any person would want.
