BK Strength and Conditioning Mission
The Bishop Kelley Strength and Conditioning program was created for the purpose of developing quality life-long health and exercise goals for our students.
Mission: “The Edge: Where Average Stops and Elite Begins”
The Bishop Kelley Strength and Conditioning program was created for the purpose of developing quality life-long health and exercise goals for our students while also being a key element to the success of the Bishop Kelley Athletic Department.
- Students who want to better themselves by making a commitment to lifetime fitness.
- Students who are committed to setting and achieving goals for personal growth and development.
- Students who want to make the commitment to athletic performance to represent Bishop Kelley High School.
How the Program is Offered:
- During First and Fourth Block students will lift with their chosen sport In-Season.
- Before and after school students will lift with their chosen sport when their sport is not in-season (Off-Season Lifting).
What We Believe:
- We believe that every sport is different within the demands of that sport, but all students will train for the overall development of what it takes to be an athlete. This belief of training the overall athlete will lead to a more competent and educated person in practicing lifetime fitness after graduation.
- We believe that with a commitment to athletic performance we can limit athletic injuries within their sport to keep students healthy and maintain sport performance.

Riley Trowbridge was named the new strength and conditioning coach at Bishop Kelley High School.
“We are pleased to welcome Riley into the Bishop Kelley family,” said BK Athletic Director Lance Parks. “I am confident that he will help support our coaches and programs in developing Bishop Kelley student-athletes into some of the best in the state of Oklahoma.”
Riley graduated from Basehor Linwood High School in Basehor, KS. He attended Missouri Western State University for undergrad, where he received a Bachelor’s in Exercise Science and minored in Coaching. He currently attends Arkansas State University where he is working toward a Master’s in Sports Administration.
“I am very excited and honored to be joining the Bishop Kelley family,” Trowbridge remarked. “I plan on creating an environment where students can learn, grow and accomplish goals that the students have set for themselves, both in their academic and athletic endeavors. I am very grateful for this opportunity and am very much looking forward to meeting and getting to know everyone within the community.”
After working at his former high school, Riley interned at Northwest Missouri State, a D-II school. He later worked at the University of Northern Iowa and the University of Texas at Austin. Most recently, Riley was a graduate assistant at Arkansas State. His opportunities have led him to work with student-athletes from multiple sports.
“By providing our athletes and coaches the support of strength and conditioning, it provides them the opportunity to uniquely train for their respective sport,” said Fr. Gary Kastl, president of Bishop Kelley. “We look forward to incorporating his expertise into our athletic programs.”
