Strength & Conditioning Coaching Fellowship
The Charlotte Country Day School Strength & Conditioning Fellowship program is a cooperative effort designed to provide an experiential bridge to current graduate students and recent graduates interested in becoming a high school strength and conditioning coach. The purpose of this experience is to augment formal classroom instruction, to experiment with theory and concepts, to utilize practical applications, and to refine the development of professional competency.
Fellows will be exposed to different philosophies and ideas and become active participants in integrating methodology into our system of training. Fellows will participate in ongoing professional development led by the Director of Strength & Conditioning with additional opportunities from athletic administrators and other department staff. Fellows will work an average of 20-25 hours per week, with most work concentrated in the morning/afternoon in the summer (7 am – 12 pm) and afternoon/evening hours during the school year (2 to 6:30 p.m.).
The Strength & Conditioning Fellows are responsible for all duties related to the administration of the Strength & Conditioning program as assigned by the Director of Strength & Conditioning. Specific responsibilities include:
• Leading and assisting middle school and high school team training session
