Cape Breton University recently invested in the strategic hiring of their first Athletics high-performance strength and conditioning coach, Morgan Campbell. Originally from Montague, Prince Edward Island, Campbell has joined the CBU Athletics coaching staff to strengthen and increase the potential of already high-calibre student-athletes.
“The strategic hire of Campbell is going to allow us at Cape Breton University to raise the profile of CBU athletics even more and take our varsity programs to whole new level, says David C. Dingwall, President and Vice-Chancellor. “Morgan’s passion and knowledge are a winning combination, and we are very much looking forward to seeing that translate into heightened athletic prowess for our teams, and eventually teams across Cape Breton Island and beyond as we work with community partners.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to add Morgan to our stellar coaching staff,” says John Ryan, Athletics Director. “Adding a high-performance strength and conditioning coach has been on the radar for a few years and is really going to be a key to the continued development of our department, our athletes, and our programs.”
Campbell completed a Diploma in Sport and Recreation Management at Holland College in Charlottetown, a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology at the University of PEI with a very a successful internship at the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific, and is now in the final stages of completing a Master of Science, majoring in strength and conditioning, from Saint Mary’s University Twickenham in London, England.
“Having the opportunity to build individual strength and conditioning plans for the elite university athletes at Cape Breton University is a dream job,” says Campbell. “I am very excited to not only put my expertise to great use, but to be able to do it in a way that allows me to have great impact on the lives of dedicated, quality student-athletes.
Due to the delayed AUS winter season, Campbell has been able to begin working with CBU’s varsity teams building his programming and having an immediate impact.
