Speed, Strength, and Conditioning

It was worth every second. This is a gold mine for coaches. Concordia is at the forefront of what’s needed in the athletic realm. Even if they have their master’s degree, I think every coach should go through this program. The principles they teach in Concordia’s MCAA are the ones I’ve lived by for 32 years, so to be solidified in those is an awesome feeling.
