We had the opportunity to work with David Stride in the 2012 season. I ask David to help our team with injury prevention, strength and fitness. David quickly established a good raptor with the team, identified and worked with girls who were at risk of injury and helped us set a good fitness standard for the team. We were very pleased with the work David did with the team. Partly as a result of David's efforts, we went through the entire season without any serious injuries. The team had a very successful season;  including winning the 2012 "A" cup provincial championship. We very much appreciate the work David did with the team and would highly recommend other teams consider working with David.

"I would like to call attention to Stride Sport and Performance in Kamloops, BC.

David Stride in the best all-round sport performance professional in Kamloops, BC. He has helped me several times over the course of my career with steady conduct, top of the line equipment and scientific methods. Often going above and beyond in his operation. I would recommend David Stride to any athlete who is serious about closing the gap to the elite level".

Justin Rodhe, 2012 Olympian



I am very pleased to write this testimonial for David. David has been my Strength and Conditioning Coach for the past two years for the TRU WolfPack Womens Soccer team. David is a professional in every way.
David delivered our team's in season and off season fitness program and also evaluated each and every player. He did a pre season, mid season and post season testing on the players. He conducted our fitness sessions and would take the players who hadn’t played that day or had played very little to do a session in order to keep their fitness level high.
David and I would talk every week about the players and he would let me know if someone was struggling with their fitness level.
He would also attend our games and take the lead for the team warm ups. He did filming in order to see how the players were doing individually. This was excellent information for him and also for me as the head coach.

David is excellent in everything that he does.
