Women's Volleyball Off-Season Program

OFF-SEASON STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING

Off-season strength and conditioning is for all prospective volleyball players to prepare them for the physical testing that will be performed during player evaluations as well as to enhance performance during the season and to reduce the chance of injury.  Student-athletes must be enrolled at Ironwood Ridge to participate.

IRVB Assistant Coach and Strength/Conditioning Coach Ashleigh Houlton, CSCS, along with Head Volleyball Coach Bill Lang will conduct all conditioning and speed/agility training sessions.  All training sessions will be held in the school's weight room/gym, track, and/or sand courts.
