Jason McCullagh - Head Strength Coach
Jason was a volleyball athlete through high school, club (Ottawa Mavericks) and college (Humber). After he stopped playing, he coached at the 16U and 18U levels with the Maverick Volleyball Club.
In 2005, Coach McCullagh architectured the Strength and Conditioning Program for the Maverick Volleyball Club as they kicked off their High Performance Programs. While his focus was Volleyball athletes for many years, he also works with Soccer, Baseball and Hockey athletes on a regular basis.
His approach is very much keeping things simple where every exercise has a reason to be there, no ‘fluff’ Coach McCullagh’s focus on building long term relationships and development strategies with athletes and their parents will improve performance, reduce injury potential and educate athletes at every touch point.
In 2015 Coach McCullagh founded Mettle Sports Training with the purpose of reaching more volleyball athletes in the province.
Since then they have become the official long term athlete development partner of the OVA and had the opportunity to work with 1000’s of Athletes across the province.
Coach McCullagh's plan is to create a long term athlete development framework for Kingston Rock to improve athletic performance and reduce injury occurrence. Every athlete will have access to tools and education around proper warm up, recovery, nutrition, hydration, sleep and training habits.
