The Archbishop Murphy Student Athlete Strength and Conditioning Program is committed to providing the highest level of athletic preparation for all Club, C Team, Junior Varsity, and Varsity Student Athletes for personal well being and athletic development.


The cost of this program is a single $75 fee for the entire academic year and is charged to all students as a separate athletic fee or class fee. The summer program is a separate fee. This fee directly supports the program budget for replacement equipment, maintenance, delivery, continuing education, and operational needs for continued safety, standards, and service.


All AMHS Student Athletes are asked to enroll to our TEAMBUILDR Account. TEAMBUILDR is an in-season and off-season strength and conditioning online tool that allows athletes to access the strength and conditioning program on their phone, computer, and paper. This allows your strength & conditioning coach to create customized workouts in real-time for individual players or position groups that are specific and individualized.
