About Steve

Steve Myrland is currently the Wellness Director and District Performance Coach for Athletics at Middleton School District in Wisconsin. He was formerly the strength and conditioning coach at the NHL’s San Jose Sharks and the University of Wisconsin. He is also a GAIN faculty member.

While with the University of Wisconsin (1988 – 2000), Steve assisted with Big-Ten and National Championship efforts in Hockey, Soccer, Cross-Country, Tennis, and Rowing. In 1993-94, he took a one-year leave-of-absence from the UW to work with the San Jose Sharks of the National Hockey League. During that season the Sharks set an NHL team record for single-season improvement, boosting their league standing point total by fifty-eight over the previous season’s record.
