Kenyon College – Second Visit


I spent the first three days of this week at Kenyon College in Gambier Ohio. I consult with the athletic department on athletic development for all their teams. My first contact with Kenyon was through swimming and Coach Jim Steen who is always seeking ways to improve. He talked to Peter Smith, the Athletic Director to bring me in to work with the whole department. I love the 6:00 am workouts in the weight room with the sprint swimmers, it has been cool to see their bodies change since my last visit and to see their improvement in the water. It is always a great experience. The Kenyon Athletic Center is an amazing facility, one of the best in the country at any level of sport. It has been fun to see the coaches embrace the concepts of athletic development and begin to incorporate them into their practices.
