I just got back from this years Pennsylvania State Strength and Conditioning Clinic at Juniata College. It is without a doubt the BEST KEPT SECRET in S&C! I highly recommend it.

Coach Doug Smith (smithd@juniata.edu) runs an outstanding clinic, dealing with overall strength program design, exercise mechanics, sport specific speed and agility training, functional sport specific strength, injury prevention/rehabilitation, flexibility, core strength, and non-traditional modes of functional strength training.
Professional Development & Continuing Education units awarded by: NSCA, BOC, Pa Board of Education/Act 48, NJ Board of Education Professional Development.

This clinic had some of the best S&C coaches in the country. Some of my favorites were:

* Dick Hartzell www.jumpstretch.com If you have a sports injury, forget R.I.C.E. see Dick! "Rest if for the deceased!" is one of his favorite quotes. The man was incredible. He jumped up and landed in a full split (at 67 years old).

* Leo Totten (USA Weightlifting Strength Coach) This guy has a jaw dropping resume! His teaching style and knowledge of the O-lifts are tremendous.

* www.dieselcrew.com James Smith and Jedd Johnson. These guys were my favorite of the entire clinic. They are grip monsters. Ripping phone books/decks of cards, bending nails, Lifting the Thomas Inch DB, etc. etc. AWESOME! Check out their web site!

What was really incredible about this clinic, was that it was UNBELIEVEBLY CHEAP! $175 for two nights lodging, two days registration, 4 meals, and clinic materials.

Don't miss next years clinic! Call 1-877-JUNIATA or email Coach Doug Smith at smithd@juniata.edu for more info.

Holy cow that is cheap. I might look into that next summmer, provided I am still locked into the teaching/coaching profession.

Chris,
Stay with it. I love my job, the teaching/coaching profession is without a doubt the best job. Summers off (I work all year at the prison :angry:), fun job, great retirement/benefits, etc. You can't beat it.

Even if you do decide to leave the profession, go to the clinic next year anyway, it is well worth it.

Dave
