Season of Strength

After three years, Season of Strength is finally complete and I couldn’t be happier with the end product.

What exactly is S.O.S.?  Simply put, this book is every “learning moment” I’ve had since 2003.  Whether, these moments came in the form of trial and error with my teams, to summer internships, to learning from great coaches I’ve worked with.

Season of Strength

S.O.S. gives you:

  • 39 Specific lifting programs
  • 150 Basketball player/Team development drills
  • Year plans
  • In-season and off-season conditioning plans
  • Movement screens & testing protocols
  • How to create “buy-in” with your team
  • Injury prevention, promoting recovery, and nutrition
  • Pre-practice and pre-game activation routines
  • Game day and game week management
  • Understanding the different training phases; Work Capacity, Strength, and Power

I honestly believe, because of S.O.S., your players will become stronger, faster, more explosive, and injury free year around. The best basketball strength and conditioning book on the market!

I met Scott Thom many years ago when he was the basketball strength and conditioning coach at Cal.  I knew right away Scott was one of those ‘young up and comers’ who would be making waves very soon.  Scott has a great background in strength and conditioning, but I believe his greatest attribute is his ability to convey information and training lessons.  Scott is a COACH, one thing you will hear over and over about Scott is that he has an amazing rapport with and respect from his players and the coaches he works with.  Scott is the real deal and is one of my very favorite people to be around in this world.”

–Coach Robert Dos Remedios

Coach Thom’s positive energy and enthusiasm makes training in the weight room and on the basketball court fun and productive.  His sincere approach to coaching motivates you to get better.  He’s the type of coach that cares about you more than just basketball or getting your stronger.  He’s about building lifelong friendships that will last beyond basketball.  Over the years our friendship has grown, and he’s someone I can always count on.”

-Tyrone Wallace- Utah Jazz

“Coach Thom’s ‘my guy’ he doesn’t just get you stronger and help you jump higher, he teaches you injury prevention exercises and recovery techniques that will keep you healthy, feeling good, and keep you playing at your best year around.”


-Allen Crabbe- Portland Trailblazers

“He’s an excellent strength coach, relates really well to the kids, has a ton of enthusiasm, just wants to be a part of it and wants to win and do whatever he can to help.”

–Coach Mike Montgomery
