CSCCa 2020 Virtual National Conference

Due to health concerns related to COVID-19, we were forced to cancel the 2020 CSCCa National Conference, which was to be held in Orlando, Florida, May 6-8. In place of the traditional national conference in-person format, we are offering a 2020 CSCCa Virtual National Conference option. The virtual national conference is tentatively scheduled to become available on Thursday, May 7, 2020.

Participating in this virtual national conference will provide coaches with access to the speaker presentations for three months, as well as the opportunity to obtain the 15 CEUs they would have received for attending the national conference in Orlando. To earn these CEUs, you must complete any 5 of the 16 quizzes which accompany each presentation. These short 5-question multiple choice quizzes are not difficult. They are simply a way to ensure that at least 5 of the 16 presentations have been viewed. This requirement is in keeping with those set forth by the CSCCa Education Board to ensure compliance with NCCA guidelines for maintaining NCCA accreditation.  Anyone who watches the presentations will be able to successfully complete the quizzes.

The virtual conference will feature many of the same speakers as announced for the 2020 CSCCa National Conference to be held in Orlando, as well as additional ones dealing with relevant topics for strength and conditioning coaches.
