Answers to Common Questions:

- Coach Kuhl recommends students/athletes under the age of 13 NOT participate in the weight training sessions on M-W-F --- however, they SHOULD participate in the athletic performance sessions on T-TH

- A new session starts @ the top of each hour --- so start times for sessions are: 6 AM, 7 AM, 8 AM & 9 AM

- Please bring your own water or sports drink, especially for outdoor sessions

- If athletes miss a workout day, they will not be asked to make it up, they will simply move on to the next workout day they are present = eyes forward, not backward

- Supportive equipment such as belts, knee sleeves, wrist wraps, etc. are recommended for joint support and injury prevention but will need to be purchased by athletes/parents or guardians
