Strength and conditioning is the name of the game, and Jon Clancy at Marist has been producing extraordinary results ever since his arrival in 2009. A 1994 graduate of West Point and New Hyde Park native, Clancy was on Army's triathlon team throughout for all four years. A true student-athlete, Coach Clancy graduated with a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Systems Engineering.
After serving for five years, Coach retired with the rank of Captain before embarking on his career as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. Prior to Marist he worked in the private sector in Syracuse and served as a strength and conditioning coach at SUNY Cortland.
Being a former high school lacrosse player at New Hyde Park Memorial on Long Island,
the men's lacrosse team took an immediate shine to Coach Clancy. However, 'The Cicruit' quickly proved to be a sort of crucible that dropped his approval rating. Marist returned to the MAAC Tournament last year in part to Coach Clancy's effort, and everyone there is grateful for the long hours and patience he has shown to all the programs. Marist Athletics will continue to be bigger, stronger and faster with Coach Clancy at the leading the way.
The moral of the story here is get in the gym because it pays dividends. You can sit at home all winter, and work on your KDR (Kill to Death Ratio) in Black Ops or Halo, or you can get in the gym. I guarantee the kids playing on Memorial Day Weekend log the hours. Will you?
