My name is Dane Nelson. I am a former college and high school strength coach. I created this podcast for strength coaches at any level but more specifically for High School Strength Coaches. I want strength coaches to be able to connect to each other and learn more about the growing field of full time high school strength coaching. Thanks for checking out the website. It would be great to connect with other strength coaches and talk about what works and what doesn’t work when training high school athletes. This is why I created this podcast. I hope you find it useful and valuable!
