NUHS Strength and Conditioning Course To Be Offered!
The NUHS P.E. Department is offering an athletic strength and conditioning class for athletes this coming school year. This is a great way to get your lifting done during the school day and not have to come in before or after school hours to lift. If you have questions regarding this class, contact Coach Ortmann. Sections will be offered sixth and seventh hours. Students can register in the fall semester and again for spring semester for a 1/2 credit elective each semester. Registration begins the first two weeks in February.
658-Strength and Conditioning Grades 10-12 Elective 1/2 Credit
The course is offered in two levels: Non-Athletic and Athletic. The Non-Athletic course will offer basic skills in strengthening and conditioning. The weight training program is designed to increase strength, speed, endurance, flexibility, agility, and power, and to condition the total body.
The Athletic course will go over advanced skills in strength training and condition. In the interest of developing the whole student athlete, this course will provide a venue for improvement in overall physical fitness, team chemistry, and character. Specifically, this is a class designed to advance the athletic skills and performance of student athletes who are members of New Ulm High School varsity and sub-varsity athletic teams. The class will act as a supplement to athletic team practice (in season) and/or off-season workouts with the goal of improving each athlete's motor skills and ability, which will lead to improved competition performance in their respective sports.
