Of course, you could still have weightroom days in June as a Fall Sports program, or in July, as a winter sports program.

Baseball/Softball go all summer the way it is anyway.

Having kids come for lifting is no different than doing football stuff.

I guess we'll have to disagree on that point. Open the weightroom for a couple of hours and doing a little conditioning is different than football stuff for us.

I think that's true for many programs regarding the difference between working out and doing some running as opposed to football activities. If you're just lifting and doing some conditioning, the amount of time required is much less. If you're lifting, conditioning, and doing football activities it requires quite a bit more time; from the kids and the coaching staff. If my kids are just lifting, I personally don't need my entire staff there. I think sometimes the thing that gets lost here is not just the time of these kids, but also the assistant coaches, some of whom don't work in education and have regular jobs. I'd be willing to bet that many of us have staffs that are made up of at least some non-teaching coaches.

It is getting harder and harder to put in the amount of time like I used to in the summer. Of our 8 Coaches only 2 are in the building in our district, 2 Others that work in other school districts (BBCHS and Iroquois West) and then myself and 3 others who are not in the education field at all. Makes for some creative scheduling sometimes.

It involves waking up, getting to school and putting in work. Whether it is lifting or football drills you are still spending the time at school.

Would the athletes see it that way, though? We go out of our way to stress that our summer lifting program is a continuation of the school year program that is for all athletes regardless of sport and that all athletes are expected to attend...and the kids still all refer to it as "football lifting" when the summer months come along.
