The TGMC Community Sports Institute hosted “Planning Your Off-Season for Speed and Power Development," an educational training session with Irving ‘Boo’ Schexnayder. Schexnayder is regarded internationally as one of the leading authorities in training design.  He presented concepts related to aiding student-athletes in the areas of speed and power. Most noted for his 12 years as a member of the Track and Field coaching staff at LSU, he also served as the Jump coach for the Team USA at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Schexnayder was the founder of the Track and Field Academy, the educational branch of the US Track and Field and Cross Country Association.

The TGMC community Sports Institute is proud to offer these free educational opportunities to local coaches and their staff as part of its mission of education, prevention and care. Specifically, this session was designed to help local coaches to be equipped with all they need to grow strong athletes, and help plan off-season for speed and power development.
