Coach Faller pushes his Performance Course kids to the limit

Coach Faller pushes his Performance Course kids to the limit

As a session to condition kids, Performance Course teaches them to become the best version of themselves. As some sports near the end, student-athletes jump right into Performance Course with Coach Coachman to train for their next sport.

Main coach, Evan Coachman, also known as Coach Coachman entered his first year as a full-time coordinator with Performance Course in March 2017. Before returning to PC, he had previously worked as a part-time coach from 2009-2012, where Coachman coordinated the strength and conditioning areas for the Kansas State Wildcats Baseball and Golf programs.

“My favorite thing about coaching PC is seeing each and every kid better themselves. We do a thing at the end of the week called ‘Star of the Week,’ and we recognize the people who worked the hardest. It’s all about helping young adults succeed and get better for me,” Coachman said.

Many kids participate in Performance Course to get prepared and in shape for their next sport. Some of the things they do to condition warm-ups, a drill called quick-feet to work on footwork, then participate in agility drills and end on lifting weights in the weight room for 45 minutes.

“I like a lot of things about PC. I like that I get to be with my friends after school and that we all get to improve. A lot of things that we do here are hard, and when we get pushed, it’s worth it in the end,” seventh-grader, Reid Jacobs, said.

In Performance Course, it’s not just a lot of uneventful workouts and repetitive drills. The students in PC enjoy lots of things that are involved in Performance Course. Being around each other about two times a week brings them together. As they work out together every week, they grow closer in relationships and become closer friends.

“PC is just fun all around. Coach Coachman and Coach Fuller keep us hyped up, and we started a new tradition of tucking our shirts in, and really, there’s never a dull moment at PC,” seventh-grader, Carson Lindelof, said.
