Coach Weber Attains CSCS Certification


Dustin's Weber

As you know, our new Strength and Conditioning Coach, Dustin Weber, has been working with all of our athletes after school in our performance program.  Specifically, what is the Performanceprogram?  For those that are not familiar with it, the mission of the program is to “to develop championship caliber, multi-sport athletes with an emphasis on year-round training.”

LHS is proud to announce that Coach Weber has recently attained his certification as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). The CSCS signifies Coach Weber as a “professional who applies scientific knowledge to train athletes for the primary goal of improving athletic performance.”  He has the expertise to conduct sport-specific testing sessions, design and implement safe and effective strength training and conditioning programs and provide guidance regarding nutrition and injury prevention.

For the remainder of the fall, our LHS Performance sessions will run 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Mondays through Thursdays.  Remember, it is the goal of the LHS coaching staff (all 22 sports!) that all winter and spring athletes plan to attend these workouts.

The Lutheran High School Strength and Conditioning/Performance Program is designed to provide our student-athletes the following:  a program that is committed to developing athletes into champions in their respective sports; to provide every athlete with the very best evidenced-based exercise programs; a program dedicated to improving our athletes strength, speed, agility, power, and flexibility; to develop team bonding, leadership, mental toughness, and discipline through rigorous physical and mental test; and to properly educate our athletes on the importance of rest, injury prevention, and nutrition.

Further, LHS and our individual 22 athletic programs have worked hard creating a unified culture of performance training.  Creating a unified program that has the support of physical education staff, coaches, and athletes is a key to building the best possible performance program. The head performance coach will work closely with the coaching staffs of each sport to develop a program appropriate for the athletes participating in that sport.

To that end, the LHS performance philosophy centers on creating an atmosphere that allows each student-athlete to maximize their potential and achieve the highest level of athletic development possible while learning skills and values that will help them maintain a healthy lifestyle in the future.

Program Objectives:

1.  Provide a safe, competitive, energetic and positive training environment
2.  Decrease chances of injury through conditioning and exercises that ensure muscle balance and flexibility
3.  Enhance balance and stability through functional training using sport specific exercises
4.  Educate athletes in proper training techniques and weight room protocols
5.  Instill an appreciation of hard work and commitment in LHS athletes

Primary Goals of the LHS Performance Program:

1.  Glorify God in our training, words, and actions
2.  Stimulate positive physiological adaptations
3.  Improve confidence and mental toughness
4.  Intensity under coach’s supervision
5.  Progression and Recording Data
6.  A Variety of Total Body Training
7.  Reduce the likelihood and severity of injury

If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact Dustin Weber via email at weber@lhssc.org.

Lutheran High School is proud to announce the hiring of Andy Lueck as our head JV boys basketball coach for 2014-2015.  As an alum of LHS, Coach Lueck understands what it means to be a “Cougar” and brings a Christian demeanor, competitive fire and drive, and ability to relate to young people to the program.

Coach Andy Lueck graduated from Lutheran High School in 2005 where he starred as a member of the basketball team and baseball team.  He was the MVP of the basketball team in 2005 and of the baseball team in 2004 and 2005.  More importantly, as a testament to his Christian attitude, sportsmanship, and ability to excel as a student-athlete, he was recognized as the “Gordon Bredow” Christian Athlete of the Year as a senior.  Upon his graduation from LHS, he attended Lindenwood University where he played baseball, graduating in 2009 with a degree in Sports Management.  While at Lindenwood, he began his coaching tenure at LHS, serving as the freshmen basketball coach from 2008 to 2012 and as the varsity assistant from 2007 to 2012.  As a freshmen coach, he compiled a 42-17 record, including a perfect 14-0 record in 2012.  He has also assisted as the varsity baseball coach (with head coach, Dennis Lueck) from 2009 to the present, as the team posted a 94-59 record.  He has also coached the St. Peters Senior Legion Baseball Team since 2010.  Currently, he serves as a sales representative for Peet’s Coffee.  As he looked towards the future at LHS, Coach Lueck commented, “I look forward to coaching basketball and helping these young men learn the game and growing as Christians.”
