Laura  Teel

Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach

Laura Teel began working with Long Beach State in 2017 as an assistant strength and conditioning coach after spending five years training athletes and individuals in the private sector of the strength and conditioning industry. She is responsible for assisting with the player development programs for several of Long Beach State's 19 sports.

Teel received her bachelor’s degree in 2008 from Chapman University, majoring in communication studies with a minor in public relations. She holds certifications from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and United States Weightlifting (USAW) as a Level 1 Sports Performance Coach, in addition to the CrossFit Level 1 Certificate.

“The improved athletic performance our athletes develop through the athletics department at Long Beach State is only one part of the benefits of being an athlete at the Beach. The positive experiences they gain by going outside their comfort zone on a daily basis and being encouraged by their peers and coaches, translates into increased confidence and leadership, which transcends their sport and follows them after college. Being a part of that change for student athletes is the most satisfying part of coaching.”
