While weight room staff organizes in-season and off-season training for AQ athletic teams, there are other opportunities for student participation.
Speed and agility training is offered in two sessions after school in the Field House on Wednesdays and Fridays. Session I is from 3:20 - 3:45 p.m. and is geared toward middle school students. Session II is from 3:50 - 4:15 p.m. and is geared toward high school students. Students will work on techniques to improve speed, quickness and agility.
The all-girls training group is open to girls in grades 7-12 with a focus on off-season athletes, but any female student interested in improving her health is welcome. The group trains Wednesdays and Fridays from 3:50 - 5:00 p.m. and offers a mix of speed and agility, and weight lifting training.
The 6th grade training group meets Wednesdays and Fridays until 4:00 p.m. This group focuses on safety, form, and weight room etiquette. They also have a lot of fun!
These programs are essential to the health and athletic success of students and student-athletes. Aquinas' weight room staff is trained on the most up-to-date and effective training techniques, which saves families time and money by not having to pursue training elsewhere. In-season lifting is required and off-season lifting, while not required, is expected. Please encourage your child to join a group!
