The mission of the Dickinson Strength and Conditioning Program is to develop healthy, well-balanced student-athletes through structured training techniques based on proven physiological principles. The program aims to motivate Dickinson ISD student-athletes to develop the physical and mental toughness required to reach peak performance while reducing the occurrence of injury. 

The philosophy of the Dickinson Strength and Conditioning Program supports the holistic needs of student-athletes by addressing the physiological and psychological aspects of competitive sports. Through researched instruction, athletes are trained using researched periodization, nutrition, plyometrics, Olympic lifts, proper recovery and speed training to enhance performance and minimize the risk of injury.   While implementing the physiological principles of our program, we instill stress management, work ethic, dedication and team building concepts to meet the psychological needs of our competitive athletes. Collectively, these endeavors reinforce our commitment to achieve our goals and those of the student-athletes we serve with vetted instruction rooted in integrity and excellence.
