Army: Apply now to Army West Point’s one-of-a-kind Olympic Strength Internship!! This is a volunteer, unpaid internship and—let’s be honest—you will be expected to do boring, menial, grunt work. But you can also expect to be treated with dignity and respect! We will take you be by the hand through our curriculum which we designed to give you the knowledge and experience that can’t be had through a kinesiology degree or a certification exam. By the end of your internship, you will have your own, personal written coaching philosophy in hand. You will have your own, personal S&C programs from a variety of sports—programs designed in Microsoft Excel and polished enough to be taken on a future interview. You will have your own, personal network of strength coaches from around the country. You will have hands-on experience working with athletes (and if you’re properly certified, we may even let you spearhead a team on your own). In short, we are here to help you become a coach and get a job! Can we trust you? Are you committed to excellence in the profession? Do you genuinely care about others? Are you currently certified in CPR/AED? We require you to be able to say ‘yes’ to all these questions. We prefer you to have a CSCS or SCCC certification. The internship begins August 8th and runs through 2022-2023 academic school year. However, if you’d like to start immediately, we should be able to accommodate you. If interested, please send a cover letter, resume, and three professional references in a single PDF file to Andrew Grubb at
