The Novi Athletic Boosters helps fund the Novi Strength and Conditioning Program, providing for the services of trainers to assist all Novi athletes and teams. The program benefits from $20,000 from the Novi Athletic Boosters each academic year and summer program.
Student athletes benefit from the training of Will Tofilski, Novi Strength and Conditioning Coach and owner of WILLPower Training in Wixom. Student athletes can also receive guidance from the trainers of from Total Performance Training Center, a program headed by Jim Kielbaso, former strength and conditioning trainer for University of Detroit Mercy.
According to Kielbaso, the strength and conditioning program has four main goals: to prevent athletes from being injured, prepare them psychologically for competition, enhance their performance and help them make body-composition changes.
“The number one goal is injury prevention,” Kielbaso said. “If an athlete is stronger, more flexible, more mobile, they can reduce their risk of injury.”
