Cal Strength Coach John Krasinski Earns National Honor

May 18, 2007

BERKELEY - John Krasinski, the head strength and conditioning coach at the University of California, has been named Master Strength and Conditioning Coach by the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches association (CSCCa). This honor is the highest given in the strength and conditioning coaching profession. Krasinski received the honor at the association's National Conference last week.

'This is an incredible honor for John,' said CSCCa Executive Director, Dr. Chuck Stiggins. 'Being named a Master Strength and Conditioning Coach signifies a commitment to the student athlete, a commitment to the University of California-Berkeley athletic program, and a commitment to the strength and conditioning profession. We are honored to have John Krasinski as a member of our association and to have him join the ranks of the Master Strength and Conditioning Coaches. He is truly a model of an outstanding strength and conditioning professional.'

Krasinki has more than 15 years of major college experience in strength and conditioning and has been at Cal since 2002. In his career, he has trained over 80 players who have gone on to the National Football League. Sox Golden Bear football players have earned Strength and Conditioning All-America honors under his tutelage. In addition to his work with the nationally-ranked Cal football team, he oversees all of the strength and conditioning for Cal's field hockey, women's lacrosse, softball, gymnastics, and men's and women's soccer teams.

Prior to his time in Berkeley, Krasinski worked at Northern Arizona (2000-02), Oregon (1996-2000), Colorado State (1993-96) and Rutgers (1991-92).

Krasinski was one of three collegiate strength and conditioning coaches to receive the prestigious certification of Master Strength & Conditioning Coach at the 2007 MSCC Ceremony. Raychelle Ellsworth (Texas A&M University) and David Langworthy (University of Nebraska-Lincoln) also earned the honor. These three coaches joined the existing 57 Master Strength & Conditioning Coaches, bringing the total number of MSCC's to 60.
