4. CONSISTENCY – Positive Attitude & Outstanding Effort (Commit)
5. DETERMINATION – Never give up, push through and finish (All In)


1. Decrease Injury, Increase Durability

  • The top priority is to keep students safe, both in the weight room and on the field, track, or court. By perfecting technique and proper movement mechanics through the strength and conditioning program, our students will develop the necessary physical traits to help withstand the mechanisms of injury.

  • Healthy muscles and joints decrease the chances of injury.  When an injury does occur, a well-conditioned, well-trained athlete will recover from the injury quicker.


2. Enhance Sport Performance & Lifetime Wellness

  • The Mustang Strength Program will help student-athletes reach their top athletic potential through a variety of proven training methods. The goal is for every student-athlete to experience improvements in strength, power, speed, agility, body composition, mobility, and flexibility to help them perform at the highest level possible.

3. Build / Continue a Championship Culture

  • To develop an elevated level of focus, maturity, accountability, discipline, competitiveness, and a genuine commitment to the team.

  • Success in sport is as much mental as physical. Our student-athletes will be challenged in the weight room both physically and mentally. They will leave the weight room confident that they can handle the demands of life and sport with success.


4. Educate on Nutrition Habits

  • For student-athletes to reach their top potential, they must fuel their body accordingly. The REFUEL nutrition education program teaches student-athletes the daily habits they need to adopt to promote proper nutrition for peak performance.


5. Develop the Foundations of Mustang Nation

  • Get Involved

  • Excellence in the Arena

  • Service above Self

  • Champions in Life
