Generals Team up with SVSU
FLINT, MI - For the second consecutive year, the Flint Generals have entered into a partnership with the Kinesiology Department at Saginaw Valley State University.
The entire Generals' training camp roster will visit SVSU on Monday, Oct. 5th and spend the entire day being tested by Kinesiology students in a variety of mediums including Wingate test, Strength & Agility, and an underwater body composition test. There will be a morning and afternoon session with lunch provided by the Department. A sports nutritionist will also meet with Generals' players to discuss proper nutritional habits throughout the season.
"Testing at SVSU will give us the opportunity for great team bonding and a look at the physical conditioning of this year's team. The staff at SVSU does a great job," says Head Coach Jason Muzzatti.
"The kinesiology department at SVSU is extremely excited about the partnership with the Flint Generals", remarked Dr. Josh Ode, who is the Human Lab Coordinator at SVSU. "We plan to use the information gathered during the testing session to help improve and/or maintain fitness levels in these athletes throughout the season."
