The Los Angeles Dodgers again are hosting a Strength & Conditioning Symposium, providing fans with an opportunity to attend virtually or in-person at Dodger Stadium.
Tickets remain available for those seeking instruction from Dodgers vice president of player performance Brandon McDaniel and his staff. Dodgers strength and conditioning coach Travis Smith and heralded Minor League director of pitching Rob Hill are among those scheduled to be part of the in-person program as well.
The Dodger Stadium symposium is being held this Saturday and Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both days.
The in-person event will give a dive into how the Dodgers use movement analysis, technology, performance and skill metrics to develop athletes from the age of 16 to Major League players to help them get through a season.
There additionally will be a blend of an academic setting in the classroom, as well as a practical setting, in the Dodgers’ weight room, batting cage, bullpen and on the field.
Participants are asked dress appropriately for the practical settings, with athletic clothing and shoes preferred.
All attendees for the in-person program who are eligible for a COVID-19 vaccine will be required to show proof of full vaccination prior to entering. Individuals with a medical condition or restriction, or who have a sincerely held religious belief, may be entitled to an exemption from the requirement of providing proof of vaccination.
Purchase of the in-person Dodger Stadium symposium also comes with access to the virtual event. That consists of six hours of content developed by the Dodgers’ performance science team and the BreakAway Data staff.
The virtual symposium also includes a keynote address by Chase Utley, who will participate in a Q&A session as well.
Utley has maintained ties to the Dodgers organization since retiring after the 2018 season, most recently being among those to appear at the 2021 All-Access event.
