OVAL STRENGTH & CONDITIONING HEAD COACH: Matt Fisher, BA Psych, MSc S&C, NSCA, CSCS 

Matt has spent the last 14 years contributing to the high performance and national sport community as a  conditioning coach, educator and Integrated Support Team (IST) lead.  At the Richmond Olympic Oval, Matt is the head strength & conditioning coach for the Volleyball Canada Women’s National Team and co-lead for the Field Hockey Canada Women’s National Team. He has also been a strength and conditioning coach and IST lead for several Canadian national teams including Golf Canada’s Amateur and Development programs and Canada Snowboard’s Slopestyle and Half Pipe teams.  Matt’s experience as the Strength and Conditioning coach for Canada Snowboard’s freestyle team at the 2014 & 2018 Winter Olympic Games has provided him with invaluable insight into what it takes to achieve success at the highest level of sport, culminating in 4 medals earned at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics. While the majority of Matt’s time has been spent with professional and national team athletes, his true passion lies in the development of youth at the grassroots level.  Matt focuses on scientific principles to guide his programming, his belief in motivating and inspiring athletes through strength and conditioning is what drives his day to day implementation. 

 

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING: Our Training Approach
Our team is driven to improving long term athletic performance. Key to the process is the development of fundamental movement skills and abilities that will best prepare each athlete for progressively structured training sessions. You can anticipate a challenging training session where you will likely encounter many novel exercises and drills designed to develop the foundations of sport specific motion and skill. During your training session, our progressive and educational approach will be demonstrated in the delivery and tailoring of the prescribed workout. Actively circulating the floor, our strength and conditioning coaches provide necessary cueing, corrections and appropriate modifications to ensure that each participant is adequately executing the basic movement skills and patterning techniques. Concurrently, our HP coaches will evaluate and assess each individual’s abilities and performance.
