Health and wellness of the individual student and adult within the community are an essential component of and focus for Episcopal High School. To this end, the athletic department provides a number of key services and programs to support these needs and efforts.
Strength & Conditioning
Strength and conditioning at Episcopal aims to enhance athletic performance by addressing the unique individual training needs of the athlete as they relate to his/her sport. Each athlete’s training is coordinated and individualized by the strength and conditioning coach for the athlete's present needs, as well as preparing for college athletics.
The program uses a multifaceted approach that focuses on injury prevention through teaching proper training technique with a goal to maximize the safe development of power and strength, flexibility, speed and agility and conditioning.
The strength and conditioning coach also provides lifting sessions for athletic teams each week that are specific to the team and tailored to their needs for that time of their season. Three trained student weight room monitors assist the coach each weekday. The weight room is open Monday-Friday from 3-7 p.m., and on the weekends from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
All participants in the athletic program also have access to two full-time certified athletic trainers, who are present during all practices and home games. They or other trainers are on hand for all away games as well. The trainers have an office located on the bottom floor of Hershey Athletics Center.
In addition, McAllister Health Center employs a full-time physician who serves as medical director for EHS as well as many nurses and two counselors.
