    Stronger than ever

    by Greg Bates

    With limited space and no great place for a weight room, Liberty Christian School (Argyle, Texas) had to improvise. Its middle school, which held classes in nice portables, had some rooms partially cleared out to add weights and other accessories. The decade-old equipment was extremely cramped in the tight space and in turn was not being utilized to its fullest means. “It was just a bad situation,” said Billy Jordan, the school’s stre...

    Keeping your coaches

    by Kevin Hoffman

    Ask any athletic director what makes their program so special, and most will talk about the coaches. They’re the ones on the ground floor, working day in and day out with the student-athletes. That’s why it can be so devastating for a department when there’s constant turnover, providing little continuity and consistency within the programs.
