Why Athletic Directors Love Bridge


Training is a daily activity for student-athletes and the weight room can be a safe haven for individual and team development which is why there should be a positive and consistent training experience across the entire athletic department. We are on a mission to help schools and universities overcome challenges and enhance the student-athlete experience.


Athletic Directors are faced with challenges every day from handling budgets to making sure there are enough coaches to student-athletes and ensuring coaches and trainers aren't overworked or undervalued.


By offering accessible and engaging digital platforms, Athletic Directors can provide their coaches with a holistic view of their team and athlete training as well as increase the efficiency of their coaches so they can get more done in less time and spend more time on what really matters -- the student-athletes development.


Utilizing BridgeAthletic within an athletic department can enhance the student-athlete experience as a whole starting from the recruitment process to post-graduate training. This enhanced experience will ultimately lead to a solid return on investment for your athletic department by allowing you to:


  • Reduce the negative effects of a large athlete-to-coach ratio
  • Provide a paperless and professional weight room
  • Decrease the manual steps in delivering and tracking workouts
  • Promote effective remote training
  • Improve recruiting success


“Our athletes love that it gives everything we do a professional feel. When they walk into the weight room, they can see that things are professionally done. They see consistency, they know what to expect. It takes the ambiguity out of the equation.”

Josh Heidegger, Director of Sport Performance | USC
