Strength & Conditioning

Woodward Academy’s Strength & Conditioning program is designed to help your student-athlete improve their strength and speed so they can keep pace with the high level of competition in Georgia high school sports.

Woodward students train in the Gene Whitner Milner III ’04 Weight Room, an impressive, state-of-the-art facility. Workouts are individually tailored to your student-athlete so they can achieve progressive gains, with emphasis on strength development, speed and agility, flexibility, and injury prevention. 

Your student-athlete may work out under the supervision of the strength staff by signing up for the Physical Conditioning for Sport P.E. class during the school day or working out after school with teammates. Learn more about our Physical Education course offerings for students in Upper School and Middle School.

Sports Medicine

Woodward Academy’s certified athletic trainers care for all Upper School student-athletes, evaluating injuries to determine if they can safely participate, taping and bracing to prevent injuries, and rehabilitating injured athletes in coordination with their own physicians. In addition, athletic trainers are accessible at all practices and games to assist your student-athlete in the event of an injury, and maintain records of your student’s injuries and treatments.

The full-time athletic trainers at Woodward are certified by the National Athletic Trainers’ Board of Certification, which requires them to hold a bachelor’s degree in athletic training, physical education, or a related field, and to pass a national exam administered by the board. They also possess thorough knowledge of anatomy, kinesiology, biomechanics, and physiology as well as the prevention, management, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. In addition, our athletic trainers are educated in nutrition, counseling, and psychology.
