WHO ARE WE?
In the basement of Alumni Arena lies the Olympic Sport Weight Room. This is where champions are forged in the off-season. This 3200 square foot room is the heart and soul of UB’s Olympic Sports teams’ preparation. Administrators, coaches and most importantly our student athletes have credited this room, its equipment and staff to many of the recent and past success’s UB athletics has experienced. At the heart of this success is the hard work and attitude of our student athletes who train here. Despite being last updated in 2013 and with less than optimal equipment, our student athletes battle and prepare every day.
‘Confidence Built Here’ is not just a fancy sign we put on the wall. UB’s strength and conditioning program is based on many various principals depending on the sport and the specific demand of the sport being trained. No matter what the sport our goal is to give our student athletes THE BEST training and preparation methods that we can in order to optimize their performance. They need to KNOW that they have an advantage over their competition when they step on the field/court because of what they did in 70 Alumni. When they are Alumni we want them not only to be proud of their athletic careers but also what they did in our weight room.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP?
UB Athletics continues to strive to provide the BEST facilities for our student athletes. 70 Alumni is a key element to this goal and our athletes’ continued success. Continuous upgrades enhance the athletes’ performance and experience and also play a huge role in recruiting the next generation of great student athletes.
Our upgrade in 2013 was a huge step in the right direction for our program. We need YOU to help us add a few more pieces of equipment to the room to continue our climb to the top.
