A look behind the scenes with the Gym’Backs

GymBacks Kickoff 2008-2009 Academic Year

The GymBacks began the 2008-2009 school year participating in the Razorback Student-Athlete Picnic on Sunday August 24 at the Tyson Indoor Track Complex. The event saw new Athletic Director Jeff Long welcome all the student-athletes. There was plenty of food to go around!

This first week of school begins the official conditioning phase for the 2009 season. The GymBacks began team conditioning on the opening day of class, Monday August 25. The conditioning includes time with our new strength coach Mike, in the gym strength, and spinning class. The team also began voluntary open gym. With just a few workouts behind us it is evident this team is motivated and talented. The GymBacks will begin official practice on Monday September 22 with a modified intrasquad on each event.

The first week of school also resumes our traditional Spirit Day. Friday’s are Spirit Day. This week the GymBacks theme for Spirit Day is Goth Day.

Below is a few photographs of the team’s first week back on campus!
