I talk with Garson Skelton from Harker Heights High school out in Texas. Had a chance to talk with coach over the weekend at the National high school strength coach association national conference down in Atlanta. Coach Skelton has a unique situation he is in being located right next to Fort Hood and having to deal with Military kids coming and going all the time. He needs to be ready for new athletes all the time at varying training ages. We talk about programming, motivation, being flexible, how to get the most out of your athletes and more. Very interesting stuff.

Garson Skelton is in his 3rd year at Harker Heights High School.  He
started his coaching career assisting the strength and conditioning staff
at Baylor University in 2009, primarily working with Men and Women’s
Basketball Teams. He also spent time working in the Exercise Biochemical
Nutrition Laboratory. In 2011 he spent time at the University of Houston
assisting their strength staff during the offseason for football,
volleyball, women’s basketball, and swimming.

Coach Skelton attended Baylor University where he earned a bachelor’s
degree in physical education and a master’s degree in exercise physiology.
He currently holds his CSCS with the NSCA, as well as completed the
certification requirements of the Level 1 Olympic Lifting Coach through USA
Weightlifting, and as the requirements to be a certified sports
nutritionist with the ISSN.

My name is Dane Nelson. I am a former college and high school strength coach. I created this podcast for strength coaches at any level but more specifically for High School Strength Coaches. I want strength coaches to be able to connect to each other and learn more about the growing field of full time high school strength coaching.  Thanks for checking out the website.  It would be great to connect with other strength coaches and talk about what works and what doesn’t work when training high school athletes.  This is why I created this podcast. I hope  you find it useful and valuable!
