Strength and conditioning training takes place at the University of Lethbridge High Performance Centre and led by the HP Centre coaches. HP Centre training goes for one hour, twice a week. Winning Edge seminars will deliver sports science concepts in the areas of sport psychology, nutrition, injury prevention and more.
