|Student / Post Graduate Internship Program|
Internships through the LSU Strength & Conditioning department are currently available to those who would like to pursue a career in Strength & Conditioning. The LSU Strength & Conditioning Department is a teaching department. This means that our interns get hands-on experience and will leave well prepared to become qualified Strength & Conditioning professionals. Interns will have the opportunity to work with all twenty (20) of LSU’s Men’s and Women’s sports totaling more than 600 student-athletes. We believe in providing a comprehensive education as the department is headed by Tommy Moffitt. Interns report to the Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coordinator and will be responsible for assisting the Strength & Conditioning staff in the day to day operations of the Strength & Conditioning Department. The level of initiative set forth by our interns will determine their overall learning experience.
