Los Angeles Dodgers Strength & Conditioning Symposium

Inaugural Los Angeles Dodgers Sports Science Symposium
December 14 & 15
At Dodger Stadium

Event Information:

The Los Angeles Dodgers are excited to host the inaugural Los Angeles Dodgers Strength and Conditioning Symposium this December at Dodger Stadium with the staff that trains the elite players of the organization. Led by Director of Athletic Development and Performance Science, Brandon McDaniel and his staff, the Dodgers Strength and Conditioning Symposium is open to any practitioner that is looking for NSCA CEU's and to learn about how the Dodgers Philosophy of Athletic Development has helped identify, train and continue to develop the physical aspects needed to perform at the highest level of baseball over a sustained period of time.

The two-day event will give a deep dive into how the Dodgers use movement analysis, technology, performance and skill metrics to develop athletes from the age of 16 in Latin America all the way up to how they train their professional team for the grueling demands on a major league season. All of the material will transfer over to how to train high school, college or professional baseball players.

There will be a blend of an academic setting in the classroom in the exclusive Lexus Dugout Club, as well as a practical setting, in the home weight room, batting cage, bullpen, and on the field. Please dress appropriately for the practical settings. Athletic clothing will be preferred.
