A Peak inside EH4510 – Strength & Conditioning

Every year, Strength and Conditioning Coach and KIP Instructor Matt Thome, invites guest lecturer Dr. Bill Harrison or Ryan Harrison from the company, Slow the Game Down, to speak in his Strength and Conditioning (EH4510) class.   Dr. Harrison’s lecture focuses on how the eye can be used as a tool to train the brain in specific ways.

Following this guest lecture, students participate in a practical class session.  The practical session allows students the opportunity to try some of the “brain training” drills used to enhance an athlete’s focus, visual acuity,and decision making skills.  This is always a fun class session, especially when students time the drills and compete against each other.

*This class will be offered again for Fall 2016.  For more information about the class click here EH4510 or contact our KIP department with questions.
