Melrose High School Strength & Conditioning Facility
In 2002 the Friends of Melrose Football (FMF) funded the
construction, purchase of equipment, and provided the
manpower necessary to build the 5000 square foot state
of the art Melrose High School Strength and Conditioning
Facility. The FMF continues to fund coach’s salaries for our
Strength and Conditioning coaching staff allowing the
facility to remain open to all student/athletes at Melrose
High School and the Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle
School. FMF continues to purchase and upgrade the
facility with state of the art Strength and Conditioning
equipment. This year FMF purchased synthetic turf for
the main facility, stretching area and Milligan Room.

Strength and Conditioning Coach Kevin Fessette, James
Bleiler and Brendan Kent have implemented a year round
strength and conditioning program focusing on the on
strengthening the entire body while at the same time
increasing speed and flexibility. The program unifies the
conditioning programs for various sports teams and
assists athletes to transition more easily from sport to
sport, season to season.

“Our strength and conditioning program is the real key to
the progress and development of our athletes. Two areas
of importance, where strength and conditioning plays an
important role in the success of our football program, are
injury prevention and the development of our players”

MHS Head Football Coach Tim Morris.

The lifter of the month is determined by the athlete that
has showed consistency and commitment to the
strength and conditioning program throughout the off
season.  It is based solely on attendance with the
expectation that every athlete works at a very high level
for preparation of this season.
