The goal of the Haverford College strength and conditioning program is to physically and mentally prepare Haverford student-athletes for the demands and challenges they will experience in competition.

Training Principles

This is accomplished through the implementation of structured training sessions designed to improve the efficiency of sport-specific movement patterns. The Haverford College strength and conditioning staff works with teams and individuals within these sessions to improve mobility, strength, power, speed, agility, conditioning, and recovery habits (nutrition, sleep, etc.).  Haverford student-athletes -- by fully committing to the program -- improve athleticism and minimize the risk of sports-related injuries.

The bulk of Haverford's strength and conditioning training takes place at The Arn and Nancy Tellem Fitness Center in the Gardner Athletic Center, Gooding Arena and the Alumni Field House.
