From the Desk of Jason Novak:
The success of our athletic programs is directly attributed to our Chippewa
Athletic Fund members. Your continual support through the Chippewa club has
allowed our athletic programs to strive for championship success. The
Strength and Conditioning Championship Fund aims to build on this support.
We've identified specific objectives to enhance the appearance and
functionality of our IAC Weight Room to help ensure that we have a space
for developing student-athletes that fits with CMU's Championship Culture.
The IAC weight room is a critical piece of the puzzle when it comes to the development of our athletes and recruiting the next generation of Chippewas . The weight room is a focal point for prospective student-athletes touring our facilities. It is of paramount importance that we make a sustained effort to ensure our weight room is the best in the MAC and among the finest in the country.
Please take a moment to review our Championship Fund initiatives and consider contributing to our Championship Culture. Our athletic programs appreciate your support, and we look forward to developing our teams in the weight room to bring you competitive seasons for all our sports.
Thank you for your contribution to the development of all Chippewa student-athletes for years to come!

Current Championship Fund InitiativesTechnology Enhancement
Just as technology continues to evolve at a maddening pace in our daily
lives, the same goes for technology in the weight room. There is no
question that in order to develop championship caliber athletes, we need to
have the tools to do so effectively.
Items like Tendo Units, used to measure bar speed meters per second, help us to quantify our athletes' performance in the weight room so that we can effectively address deficiencies. Purchasing these and other such pieces of technology allow us to offer the best strength and conditioning experience in the MAC.
Training Environment Improvements
There is no question that the physical environment impacts our athletes' ability to train. We are in need of a number of upgrades in this area. We would like to purchase flat screen TVs for our athletes to use in studying their workouts and to help create a "wow factor" for incoming recruits.
Additionally, I believe that the sound system is an underestimated supplement to the workout environment. We are looking to purchase a sound system that will create an intense, enthusiastic, high energy environment that will help our athletes enjoy their training.
