Athletic Development

The field once known as Strength and Conditioning has grown exponentially, far beyond its football roots, when references to working to becoming bigger, faster, and stronger were most strongly identified with collision sports and male athletes.  
Athletic Development is a comprehensive and appropriate approach to developing the needs of all young people involved in sports today.  Athletic Development at Mercersburg is the process of evaluating and training all components of athleticism-the ability to perform athletic movements-and associated energy systems.  Our approach is guided by an understanding of differences and needs in age, training experience, gender, physical limitations, and injury status.

Mark Cubit is the Athletic Development Coach for Mercersburg Athletics. Coach Cubit designs and administers training programs for Mercersburg's athletic teams and individual athletes of all levels. His objectives, consistent with any individual or group are to minimize exposure to injury and assist in rehabilitation of injuries, improve athletic performance, and promote general movement skills with functional training programming for athletes of all levels. Coach Cubit also works with coaches and their teams to extend programming into their practices, conducts hands-on seminars, and maintains performance-training resources.
Mercersburg partners with Volt Athletics to provide year-round strength and conditioning programming, with customized elements to meet our philosophy and goals. This investment means that each athlete, coach, and team is able to access training specific to the needs at a specific developmental stage.
