The Anderson Family Strength and Conditioning Center (Maurer Center)

The Anderson Family Strength and Conditioning Center opened the fall of 2005. Strength and conditioning are an important part of athletics. In order for Rider University student-athletes to realize their potential they must not only improve their skill work, but improve physically as well. Rider Athletics has set in place a strength and conditioning program to help its student-athletes reach their full potential. The end result of this program will make each student-athlete stronger, quicker and faster while helping them avoid injuries.

The 4,200 square feet facility contains:

"This first class facility serves 20 of our athletic teams at a very high level and also serves as a significant recruiting tool for our coaches."
