In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Assistant Strength & Conditioning Coach for Olympic Sports at Notre Dame, Kyle Skinner. Kyle comes on the podcast with only 2 days to go before the Notre Dame-ACU Human Performance Summit when he is talking alongside some of his Notre Dame colleagues about performance teams in collegiate sport. With that in mind, we focused on how the Notre Dame mens lacrosse performance team collaborate to maximise the teams output, both in training and on the field.
