A resource for high school strength training coaches
Jay Hyber and Brett Kuehn are Business Development Consultants with VertiMax. Jay is the Business Development Consultant for the Midwestern region and in his 5 years with VertiMax has met up with a lot of coaches in the areas he serves. Brett serves the East Coast in his capacity, and apart from attending events and meeting coaches in his area, he also writes articles to share information he has learned. Both Jay and Brett attend regional and national events, dive into their communities and focus on getting an understanding of the current topics — what's important to coaches, the issues they're facing and new strategies they're implementing.

Jay and Brett dive into the key benefits that coaches get from being a part of this organization, as well as some of the major takeaways from attending regional events hosted by NHSSCA and the National Convention. Tune in to find out more about what to expect from the NHSSCA in the coming years.
