Jay DeMayo is in his 10th year as a strength and conditioning coach at the University of Richmond, and his eighth year working with the men's basketball team. Jay and I met in 2012 when he asked me to speak at his Central Virginia Sports Performance Seminar. If you’ve never heard of it before, it’s a world class event and one that I always recommend to fellow coaches. In this show Jay and I cover a ton of topics, including how to know if your athletes are ready for jump training, the often missed value and role of elasticity work, and how a call out from a fellow coach prompted him to create the CVASP seminar. Here's a brief overview of what we covered in this episode: * How Jay got into the world of physical preparation. * Some insight into his current gig at Richmond University, where he's currently in his 10th year. * What long-term athletic development means to him, and how he's applying those principles to his collegiate level athletes. * The biggest issues Jay deals with when it comes to incoming athletes. * An overview of the onboarding process that Jay uses to get his athletes up to speed. * The 1x20 Program: What it is, who created it, and why he's a fan. * How Natalia Verkoshansky has influenced him, and his thoughts on dedicated jump training for basketball players. * His thoughts on how you introduce jump training with your athletes, without killing them in the process. * Jay's thought's on "minimum effective dose." * The BIG Question. * The lightning round, where we discuss what prompted him to start the CVASP seminar, Ryan Horn's beard, the books he's reading right now, and what's up next for Jay DeMayo.
