Head strength and conditioning coach, Adam Rankin, and his staff will direct the Elder Strength & Conditioning Camp. The camp will offer instruction in strength training, conditioning, and nutrition for any current 7th grade boy (athlete or non-athlete) that is interested in attending Elder High School in the fall of 2019. There are two sessions -- spring and summer -- and participants may sign up for one or both!


Each day, students will learn strength and conditioning techniques designed towards safety, improving strength, speed, overall conditioning, and developing great nutritional habits. From improving linear speed, to being in better overall health, this camp will fulfill any goal students have of self-improvement.

Strength & Conditioning Camp:

  • Shed defenders with increases in your strength;
  • Elude opponents with lightning fast agility and quickness;
  • Increase explosiveness and power;
  • Develop healthy nutrition and exercise habits that will last a lifetime!

“When I walked through the doors of Elder as a freshman, I was unsure and had little knowledge of the importance of weight lifting and training. I knew to play football in college I had a lot of work ahead of me. I was a lanky 170-pounder, but thanks to Adam's dedication, enthusiasm, and experience, I improved to 230-pounds becoming much stronger and confident in myself. Adam finds a way to get the best out of each and every one of his athletes. I was fortunate to experience it for four years. I truly believe Adam is a big reason I fulfilled a life’s dream in signing my national letter of intent to the University of Notre Dame.”
