Very open, no need to think you have to ask specific things or stay on board, literally any question you might have just go for it and Dane will give you an answer and help you clarify any confusion. Down to earth and easy to talk to anyone at the gym."

We've built out in-depth resources to make programming as straightforward as possible for you. We have tons of exercises and rep schemes for each periodization phase and sport type. We also include templates to write consistent programs that work toward your athlete's goals.

Friday June 2nd
Session 1: Why We Coach
Motivating athletes and getting buy-in can be extremely difficult, especially with less dedicated and younger athletes. Learn why Dane is motivated to coach and his strategies to transfer his energy and charisma to his athletes, making them believe they can be more successful than their wildest dreams.
Session 2: Weightlifting Observation
What does a training session with world-class athletes look like? What are the most important aspects of Olympic lifting technique that should be trained? How does Dane communicate with his athletes during training? Observe an elite-level weightlifting session where Dane will discuss how he runs sessions and break down Snatch and Clean technique.
Saturday June 3rd AM
Session 3: Programming Basics
Programming is time-consuming and sometimes feels like you’re throwing stuff on the wall to see what sticks. Learn our structured approach to programming that includes easy-to-use templates and decision-making processes to determine the best exercises, reps, and sets for any situation.
Session 4: In-Season VS. Off-Season Training
Too many people stop training in-season because they don't know how to lift without impeding upcoming games or competitions. In addition, many athletes are always in season when school sports go year-round. Learn how to plan a year of training to be in peak condition when it matters and how to manage athletes that play different sports and have varying commitment levels.
Session 5: Sport Specific Training
We see athletes all the time training the same exact same way for different sports and positions—Wrestlers training like soccer players or wide receivers training like linemen. Learn how to indicate any sport's most important strength characteristics and how to target them specifically in training.
Saturday June 3rd PM
Session 6: Athlete Testing and Benchmarks
How should you test the strengths and weaknesses of athletes? What benchmarks should you use as a measuring stick for their sport and position? Learn testing methods that maintain the normal cadence of training and getting better, as well as detailed charts that provide goal strength numbers for athletes of all sports.
Session 7: Team and Large Group Training
One of the hardest aspects of being a strength coach is training and managing a large group of athletes while giving each individual athlete the attention they deserve. Learn the tactics Dane has developed over the years to train anywhere from 10 to 40 athletes at a time.
Session 8: Adapting to the Real World
No matter how much planning we do, there are always situations that force us to adapt our training. Learn how to adapt training for an athlete with an injury and the best way to program around missing equipment.

Reviews from Last Year's Summit
Being with individuals who have a passion for strength training and helping individuals was incredible. I was able to supplement a lot of the information that I had been gathering through Garage Strength’s YouTube channel. I would go again next year if they hold another summit.
