The 2020 summer Blue Devil Strength and Conditioning program begins Monday, May 18 for boys and girls grades 6-12.

There is no cost to participate and all participants will receive jump ropes and strength development bands.

“We are super excited we can get going so early this year to engage with our students,” said BDSC Coach Greg Lupfer, who is also the Wa-Hi Head Football coach. “We understand everyone is excited to get out of the house, see old friends and make new ones, but because of the COVID-19 virus we have had to adjust our BDSC format and time frame to begin our workouts at home.”

Coach Lupfer and his team have plans in place to open the program to in-person sessions once state guidelines permit. Each Phase will be in conjunction with the state of Washington’s Health and Safety COVID-19 guidelines Governor Inslee has set forth.

“Our goal is to ensure the safety and well being of our participants first,” said Lupfer. “We want our students to keep their heads up, stay active and be sure to take care of their academic responsibilities.”
