The Student Strength and Conditioning Program at Washington State University serves many functions; the most important function is helping serve our student athletes within our athletic program. The program also gives students invaluable experience that will help prepare them for a full-time career. We do mainly focus on the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Profession, but we have had a wide variety of students use our program for other future endeavors in related fields. Some of those related fields are physical therapy, athletic medicine, personal training, sport coaching and physical education. Although we do not require a specific major for this volunteer experience, we do prefer students to be involved in programs such as Athletic Training, Movement Studies and the College of Education.
The student program here at WSU has produced many quality and highly sought after Strength and Conditioning professionals and has been able to help place former students in a wide variety of settings after their experience here. We have former students in the NFL, NBA and MLB, as well as many in collegiate athletic programs across the country.
Our goal is to give students hands-on experience in Strength and Conditioning to help further their knowledge of the field and to help better service our student athletes here at Washington State University.
