Tips to Train From Home
In response to the current school closure, the Jesuit Sports Performance Team is committed to providing guidance and support not only to our students-athletes, but the entire school community while campus is closed. Physical and mental well-being is not something to be taken for granted, therefore we will continue to reference the current research and employ standard practices to provide the very best health advice. All current research supports this balanced, minimalistic protocol for promoting comprehensive wellness and basic human performance.
The Jesuit Sports Performance Team invites you to embrace this school closure as an opportunity for growth. This is a unique set of circumstances that invite us to engage in a reflective process of examining our state of readiness and to build a resilient mindset to conquer our vulnerabilities.

As we continue to work from home, we must remind ourselves that a physically able body helps promote mental health and wellness. As John F. Kennedy stated, “For physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body; it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity. The relationship between the soundness of the body and the activities of the mind is subtle and complex. Much is not yet understood. But we do know what the Greeks knew: that intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong; that hardy spirits and tough minds usually inhabit sound bodies.”
