High School Strength and Conditioning programs have been progressively gaining ground in the past few years. There is a real problem with this because the athletic department usually has a sport coach or teacher take the lead on the program. This person rarely has any Coaching experience in this field or any proffesional background. At this point, the Athletes could be at risk as they could be exposed to lack of supervision, lack of coaching detail, lack of technique adherence and lack of judgement in regards to progression and choosing weights. All of these 'lacks' can sum up to a very bad result...injury. High School athletes are still developing physically and need to be progressed accordingly.
Coach Taylor built his program from the ground up. With his expericence as a Professional and Division I athlete and his passion for Strength and Conditioning he has started a Juggernaut of a program in Southeastern Michigan. From fund raising relentlessly and aggressively seeking knowledge from the country's best Strength Staff's he has has built one most premier Strength programs in the state of Michigan. His dedication and passion for his athlete's is exceptional and the results of the Athlete's speaks for itself. Chelsea High is fortunate to have Coach Taylor in their Athletic Department.
