If you’re a strength and conditioning coach who is serious about taking their skills to the next level, then you’ll want to know about this seminar.
- Are you tired of attending seminars or reading articles by “coaches” who don’t really coach?
- Do you want to attend a course that maximizes your continuing education dollars?
- And would you like to work with two guys that are training elite athletes every single day?
If so, you need to attend the Elite Athletic Development 3.0 seminar!
What is the Elite Athletic Development Seminar?
The Elite Athletic Development Seminar (or EADS, for short) was created because Joe and I were tired of the average, every day strength and conditioning seminar.
It you go to a lot of courses like we do, they’re all the same.
You get a coach who has to cram a lifetimes worth of knowledge into a 45 or 50 minute presentation. And by the time they’ve done an intro, given some background, and wrapped the thing up, they only have 15-20 minutes to actually present the materials!
We created the EADS courses because we, as presenters, wanted to give more.
We wanted to give coaches more insight into our unique training philosophies.
In this seminar, you’ll be introduced to our unique and comprehensive approaches to athletic development.
This seminar will run the full spectrum, from programming to coaching and everything in-between.
And while there are tons of great resources out there on entry-level programming or coaching, there isn’t much out there at the next level.
Here is just a small sampling of what will be covered at the EADS 3.0 seminar:
- A complete overview of the Tier System, and how to use it to maximize the development of your athletes.
- The R7 approach to training: How it will systematize your programming, and allow you to write consistently superior programs to what you’re doing now.
- How to integrate speed, agility and conditioning into your strength training program.
- Why proper breathing is an integral component of your training program, and how to use breathing to supercharge your core training programs as well.
- How to use the “slow-cooker” approach with your young athletes to make sure they develop correctly, both now and in the future.
- An extensive session on single-leg training, including it’s benefits, drawbacks, and the best ways to incorporate it into your physical preparation program.
- How to develop your own, unique coaching philosophy that you’ll carry with you throughout your coaching career..
If you’re a coach who truly cares about his or her athletes, and you want to take your own skill set to the next level, this is a can’t miss event.

What Will Be Covered at EADS 3.0?
Session 1: The Houston Cougar Summer Program
The Integration of Speed, Agility and Conditioning with a Tier Based Strength Training Program
Fitting everything into a Division-1 summer program is never easy, but the best coaches find ways to maximize the success of their athletes.
Coach McKnight will give you an in-depth look at how he integrates his field and strength sessions to coincide with each other during the all-important 9 week NCAA Summer Strength and Conditioning Program.
Furthermore, he will discuss how he implements speed, agility and conditioning drills on the field with his tier system based strength training plan to get the best of both worlds.
Session 2: The R7 Approach to Training
Every coach’s goal is to create a systematic, streamline approach to program design. When you have a system for program design, you get consistently better results with every program you write.
The R7 is used in facilities across the country, as it provides a a “fill in the blanks” approach to program design that ensures you cover all your bases with each and every program. Using this simple yet effective programming strategy will give you and you athletes the best chance for success!
Session 3: Athletic Based Strength Training:
Dissecting the Tier System Strength Template
In this presentation, Coach Kenn will provide the three-day, totakll-body strength training template that has become a staple in many programs across the country.
Coach Kenn will present the nuts and bolts of the Tier System Training Methodology, while also providing a practical element that shows what an actual training session could look like.
Session 4: Integrated Breath and Core Training
Everyone and their mother likes to talk about core training.
But are core training “circuits” really all you need?
And furthermore, could it be that you’re doing all the right exercises, but doing them in the wrong fashion?
The core unites the upper and lower halves of the body, so smart core training should be an integral component of your programming.
In this hands-on session, Mike is going to cover how to integrate proper breathing into your core training to create athletes that are not only stronger and more powerful, but who are less likely to break down as well.
Session 5: The Block Zero Program
One of the biggest concerns for any coach (and in many cases parents as well), is how are their children going to be exposed to their first organized training program.
In the age of getting there fast, we have to understand the developmental process and maturation of our athletes. Coach Kenn will outline the basic fundamentals of establishing an incoming developmental program for newcomers into your program.
Coach Kenn’s “slow cooking” process focuses on movement and relative/gymnastics strength capabilities, before exposing the athlete to external loading. This will be a combined lecture and hands-on session, with the practical part asking clinicians to participate in the various movements being presented.
Session 6: The Truth about Single-Leg Training
Single leg training has been a huge point of debate for close to a decade now.
But, what is the role of single-leg work?
Does it replace you big lifts like squats and deadlifts?
How do you incorporate it into your programming?
And last but not least, what exercises do you choose?
This session will have a blend of practical and hands-on, giving you a strong understanding of where single-leg work fits into your programming, as well as progressions to help you get the most out of your single-leg training.
Session 7: Developing a Coaching Philosophy
Coach Kenn will present on numerous points of emphasis in the realm of developing a coaching philosophy. This presentation will include but will not be limited to his “Words Win” mission, 6 critical factors of Coaching, and growing within yourself as a coach and individual.
