Wellness & Conditioning
We understand that learning extends far beyond academic coursework. The best learning happens when students are healthy in mind, body and community. At Convent & Stuart Hall, students consistently focus on personal growth, developing their sense of self, empathy, balance and emotional fluency through various channels, including athletic teams and wellness classes.
Our multi-purpose Performance Lab complements the main gyms on both campuses and helps meet the recreation needs of our many teams and individuals. A full-time Strength & Conditioning Coach oversees conditioning, a wellness program and equipment maintenance.
Meet Our Strength & Conditioning Coach
A fitness enthusiast from a young age, Barclay played numerous sports as a kid and used exercise to help maximize his potential. He got his start in the fitness industry as a teenager and quickly amassed a long list of accomplishments as an athlete and coach. After four years as the head strength and conditioning coach at a high school in Marin County, Barclay joined Convent & Stuart Hall in 2018. He immediately onboarded the school's new Performance Lab and established a school-wide strength and conditioning program that promotes healthy habits. Barclay is a biomechanics specialist and is certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
For student-athletes looking to enhance their flexibility, agility, balance and spatial awareness, after-school dance classes taught by Roberto Parris, High School Wellness Counselor and Academic Coach, offer a multi-faceted approach to conditioning. By incorporating dance into their training regimen, student-athletes gain a competitive edge while developing self-confidence, resiliency and a deeper appreciation for movement and the arts.
UCSF Sports Medicine Partnership
Since 2011, Convent & Stuart Hall has had a partnership with the UCSF PlaySafe Sports Medicine Program, whose mission is to “provide a safe and positive environment for athletic pursuits, to facilitate access to the highest quality sports medicine care, and to encourage physical and mental growth by empowering student-athletes to lead balanced, physically active lifestyles.”
Convent & Stuart Hall high school student-athletes have access to two UCSF athletic trainers throughout the school year. They work closely with our teams and student-athletes to optimize health and safety through education, injury prevention, and treatment during practices and athletic competitions.
