Strength and Conditioning for Sports - Olympic Lifting Training - With East Hampton Strength and Conditioning
Dear EHHS Students and Parents/Guardians:
We are pleased to offer an 8-Week Introduction to Weightlifting program that will be designed to prep members for an Unsanctioned Olympic Weightlifting meet on March 3, 2018.
Our commitment is to provide the best possible Olympic Lifting training and coaching available in the area! While Olympic weightlifting is a sport, the lifts themselves are commonly used by strength and conditioning coaches to help their athletes improve elements of athletic performance such as strength and power.
We will begin and end the 8-weeks with obtaining benchmark weights. Everything we do is measurable and recordable, allowing athletes to actually SEE improvements in speed, endurance, strength, agility, etc. Members will have the option to compete on March 4 at the 2018 Northeastern States Open at CrossFit Revelation in Enfield, CT or compete in an Unsanctioned meet held right at East Hampton Strength & Conditioning on March 3, 2018.
We expect all athletes to: come to all training sessions and to be there on-time. We expect all athletes to give 100% of their focus and effort throughout all training sessions. We also expect all athletes to listen to and be respectful of the coaches, their peers and fellow athletes, and the facility and equipment. If an athlete is found to be in violation of any of these expectations, she/he will be asked to leave and not be invited to return for future training sessions; coaches and parents will also be notified.
What an athlete can expect in an average training day is to participate in a coach-led warm up that will be specific to the movements/skills that will be addressed that day. Workouts will include olympic lifting (snatch, clean & jerk), strength training (i.e. squatting, pressing, pulling, etc.), and speed training (i.e. sprints, running drills, etc.).
Parents/Guardians can help by encouraging athletes to rest/recover when possible. Athletes should avoid training on their own unsupervised to avoid overtraining. Nutrition (an extremely important part of any training cycle) is key! Different athletes have different needs, however all of our athletes need to eat well-balanced diets and stay hydrated. Maintaining a proper diet will help ensure maximal athletic performance and will support recovery. Finally, sleep will be important for rebuilding muscles and to be able to maintain a rigorous training schedule!
If at any time a parent/guardian needs to contact us, please feel free to call Coach Ally at 774-994-0064 or Coach Bryan at 203-687-5024. Coach Ally will be the primary Coach for this program. You may contact her at Aletheia.Stratos@gmail.com or Coach Bryan at Bryan8@comcast.net.
Things to Remember: Athletes should eat 1-1½ hours before training. Please remind students to bring water, a snack and bring a notebook (preferably only to be used specifically for training) to record/track their times, weights, etc. Lastly, wear comfortable workout clothing and sneakers!
Credentials: Ally has an M.Ed. in Elementary Education, currently holds the CrossFit Level-1, USA Weightlifting Level-1, and first aid/AED/CPR certifications. She is also a competitive weightlifter in the 69kg weight class. Additionally, we have members who have qualified to compete in Nationals in the 53kg and 69kg women’s weight classes.
2018 Strength and Conditioning Price and Training Schedule: The cost is $320/student for the entire 8-week session. Classes will meet Tuesday’s and Thursday’s from 2:30-4:00pm. Training will begin Tuesday, January 9th and go through Saturday, March 3 (competition day) OR Sunday, March 4 (coaches competition day - optional).
