Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Q. WHO MANAGES THE PTC?

A. The ORHS Foundation Board Members made up of volunteer parents manage the PTC. Management duties include searching for and hiring the best strength & conditioning trainers to coach our students in the center, researching and maintaining an on-line registration management system to track participants attendance and payment, maintaining equipment to ensure student safety as well as collecting payment from participants. While the Foundation manages the PTC, the entire program is a partnership between Oak Ridge High School administration, the team coaches and Vince Mini’s trainers to ensure the best program is made available to the student athetes.

 

Q. ARE THERE COSTS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM? IF SO, WHAT ARE THEY?

A. Yes. Participation is not mandatory; however, the Foundation incurs significant expenses to sustain such a program. In order for the ORHS Foundation to offer such a service to our students, payment must be collected to cover the cost to rent the facility paid to the school district, insurance fees to cover the facility, fees for the on-line management system, bookkeeping fees and salaries for the professional strength & conditioning coaches.

B. There are various fees based on different scenarios. Such scenarios include in-season strength & conditioning training for student/athletes for $50.00 per month and off-season strength & conditioning training for student/athletes for $75.00 per month.

 

Q. DOES THE PROGRAM CONTINUE DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS?

A. Yes. The program will continue throughout the summer months. Stay tuned for the schedule because there may be 1-2 weeks that the facility is closed. Check with your team’s coach for schedule details.

 

Q. HOW DO I GET MY STUDENT INVOLVED IN THE PTC? WHO DO I CONTACT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS PERTAINING TO REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT?

A. Prior to students accessing the PTC, an account must be set-up through the on-line management system, FrontDesk from your computer or a mobile device. A liability waiver must then be signed by a parent and payment made prior to the student training for the first time. At that point the student can move forward with scheduling a time in the PTC and the athletic trainers will guide them from that point forward.

B. Should you have any questions or difficulty registering through the FrontDesk Management System, please contact Sophia Allie at www.orhscfoundation@gmail.com

 

Q. DO TEAMS WORKOUT TOGETHER?

A. Yes. Coaches like to have their players’ workout together to gain a positive team culture and camaraderie.

 

Q. HOW IS THE PTC SCHEDULE MANAGED AND WHY DOES IT CHANGE MONTHLY?

A. Coaches request a preferred day and time for their team to train in the PTC. Those requests are sent to the Athletic Director who coordinates the schedule. Priority is given to teams that are in-season due to their tight schedule with games and practices.

B. The PTC schedule may change from month to month because sports seasons change and team schedules vary. Check with your team’s coach for details pertaining to the schedule.

 

Q. CAN FORMER ORHS STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM?

A. Yes. The PTC is welcoming recent Oak Ridge High School graduates who are currently enrolled in college and wish to improve their strength and conditioning while home for the summer break. Prior to using the PTC, an account must be set-up in FrontDesk, a liability waiver signed and payment must be made. At that point the athlete can move forward with scheduling a time in the PTC and the athletic trainers will guide them from that point forward.

 

Q. HOW WILL INJURIES AND INJURY PREVENTION BE HANDLED?

A. Student athletes that are injured will work on a modified program based on their doctor’s or physical therapist’s recommendation. The PTC has very qualified and experienced physical therapists which we will be happy to refer your student to should an unfortunate injury occur. These physical therapists are highly regarded and work with professional athletes, world record and Olympic athletes as well as college and high school athletes. In regards to injury prevention, one of the major reasons for this strength and conditioning program is to assist in the prevention of injuries as students put their bodies through very long athletic seasons in today’s culture. Training students about proper movement in their everyday lives, strengthening their core, flexibility, nutrition, hydration and sleep are all key components in keeping student/athlete bodies healthy.

Q. How is my child’s progress measured?

A. Students will receive a goal setting sheet to monitor their progress throughout the year. Strength checks in various lifts will be done periodically along with speed and agility improvements. 

Q. Can my 8th grader participate?

A. Once the 8th grader receives their promotion certificate from the Middle School, they are eligible to train at the ORHS PTC. However, it is best for the student to train with the program they intend to try-out for once they enter Oak Ridge High School. Check with the ORHS coach regarding the PTC schedule during the summer.
