Strength coaches help build strong athletes

Jed Smith and Dominic (Nick) Davis put UNI on the map for strength and conditioning professionals across the Midwest. The two strength and conditioning coaches, who are part of UNI's School of Health, Physical Education and Leisure Services (HPELS), did so by coordinating the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) North Central Regional Conference earlier this year. The event attracted hundreds of students, athletes and coaches from around the Midwest to UNI's athletic facilities.
