Strength & Conditioning
Mercy Athletics believes in the power of conditioning to produce a top level athlete. We provide Strength & Conditioning sessions through Pacific THERx. Strength & Conditioning services are arranged by the coaching staff for any student athlete or team, 2 times a week for 60 minutes to include but not limited to dynamic warm-ups, body-weight strength training, agility, and weighted strength training for 8-10 weeks prior to any of the seasons.
We will also arrange and conduct pre-participation physicals 1-2 times per year to ensure that athletes are prepared for their upcoming seasons.
