Chivas USA (MLS) announced that the Competitive Athlete Training Zone, or CATZ, has been hired for the club’s Sports Performance Training and Physical Therapy, and will be represented on the technical staff by Strength and Conditioning Coach Jim Liston.
“CATZ is a great organization, and Jim Liston is an experienced Strength and Conditioning Coach, having worked with MLS teams and other top-level athletes for many years,” said Domene. “We’ve already seen in the first part of preseason how much he can help our team, and we’re very happy to have him on board.”
