Joel St. Cyr begins his fourth year as the head strength & conditioning coach at Babson College in 2017.
St. Cyr, who came to Babson in September 2014 and became the first full-time strength & conditioning coach for the department's 22 varsity programs in January 2015, has over two decades of experience in the field. Prior to Babson, he was overseeing the St. Cyr Sports Performance Academy for three years and Ultimate Training at Sluggers Academy for one. St. Cyr, who founded his own performance academy in 2010, partnered his business with Sluggers Academy in September 2013 to continue to provide strength and conditioning services to athletes of all ages.
Prior to working in the private sector, St. Cyr spent 20 years as a full-time strength & conditioning coach at Northeastern University. Hired in 1991, he worked with 19 different varsity sports during his time on campus, coaching thousands of student-athletes in sport-performance training sessions while also consulting in the design of seven different training facilities. St. Cyr, who left Northeastern in 2010, helped the Huskies’ athletic programs claim 61 conference championships during his two decades with the department.
A 1989 graduate of Springfield College, St. Cyr spent time working with the New England Patriots, both as an intern and assistant strength & conditioning coach, during the 1989-90 season. He then spent 11 months as a strength & conditioning graduate assistant at Clemson University before being hired by Northeastern.
