In this episode I talk with Coach Patrick Nolan from Ponderosa high school in Parker Colorado. Coach Nolan is a strength coach for both a sports performance center and Ponderosa Mustangs. He has got a great program implemented and makes sure that each athlete is developing the way they should be with movement first.

Before his current position he was the head strength and conditioning coach at Glenbrook South H.S. in Glenview, IL. And he was also a sports performance coach at TCBOOST Sports Performance in Northbrook, IL. He received his B.S. in Exercise Science at Florida State University while playing club hockey.  He is a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS) through the NSCA along with having his XPS through EXOS and the FMS cert as well.

I like the movement at 1:42 on the mini band video, Good Stuff coach!

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!
