Bill is a Certified/Licensed Athletic Trainer (ATC/L-ATC) and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) with over 25 years of experience at the world-class, professional, Olympic, and elite youth levels. Bill graduated from the State University of New York College at Cortland in 1989 with a degree in Athletic Training/Sports Medicine. He was a member of the varsity soccer team as well. Bill then spent fourteen years at the world-renowned Burke Mountain Academy in Vermont. Here Bill worked with many of the best junior alpine ski racers in the world while he honed his skills in reconditioning and athletic development.
Bill then spent the next ten years at the Vermont Orthopaedic Clinic where he further developed his approach on reconditioning by working with many of the best sports teams and athletes in the world. He created a residency program where athletes and medical professionals would come from around the globe to stay in Vermont for reconditioning camps. These were intensive training sessions over weeks that further prepared the athlete for an eventual return to competition.
In 2013 Bill joined HPSports in Wayne, PA. He has created a world-class facility within the walls of the YSC Sports. He has partnered with an incredible team of like-minded professionals who all strive for excellence.
Bill travels internationally lecturing, conducting clinics, and consulting with medical staff and athletes on progressive reconditioning and athletic development strategies.
From the time of injury and/or surgery, every decision made along the reconditioning journey can affect the outcome positively or negatively. If there is a solid understanding of what the end product is to look like, then the early phases must be very progressive to set the athlete up for success. Unfortunately in a more traditional medical model that emphasizes protection over preparation, close enough to restoring performance is considered good enough. And they often don’t know the difference.
