Strength and Conditioning

Welcome to the Concordia Crusaders Strength and Conditioning Homepage

Concordia’s strength and conditioning program strives to develop its athletes to be faster, stronger, and more resilient, both mentally and physically. Through training in strength and conditioning, Crusaders are better prepared to handle the demands of the sport they play and avoid injuries.


Concordia provides its student-athletes with the resources they need to succeed. The primary weight room located off the track and stadium complex is 2400 square feet with ten power racks, dumbbells, and other equipment, while an additional indoor weight room adds seven more power racks and a rehab area utilized by the athletic training program. Strength and conditioning is led by Head Strength Coach, Phill Wilke, who has certification through the NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) and a Masters in Fitness and Human Performance.

A unique aspect of Concordia’s athletic program is the incorporation of two athletic periods during the school day (5th period for male athletes and 8th period for female athletes), allowing them to train during the actual school day. Because Concordia has a separate coach specifically for strength and conditioning, off-season athletes are also able to training in the mornings and after school if they are not able to take an athletic period in their school schedule.
