CSCCa 2020 Virtual National Conference

You are still able to register and pay for the CSCCa 2020 Virtual National Conference and obtain 15 CEUs! The virtual conference will feature many of the same speakers as announced for the 2020 CSCCa National Conference to have been held in Orlando, as well as additional ones dealing with relevant topics for strength and conditioning coaches.

Important Reminders

  • This virtual conference is worth a maximum of 15 CEUs
  • Access to the virtual conference presentations is 3 months from the release date (May 7) or from the date you are registered and pay for the virtual conference, whichever comes later. The virtual conference links will be disabled on December 31, 2020, at 11:59 pm MST. Consequently, the last date to register and pay for the event and receive the full three month access will be September 30, 2020.

Explanation of CEUs

You are able to obtain the 15 CEUs you would have received for attending the national conference in Orlando. To earn these CEUs, you must complete any 5 of the available quizzes which accompany each presentation. You do not need to report when you complete the 5 quizzes; they will automatically be added to your account. Once you complete the 5 quizzes and obtain your 15 CEUs, you do not have to complete the remaining video presentation quizzes; you can just watch the remaining video presentations if you like. These short 5-question multiple choice quizzes are not difficult. They are simply a way to ensure that at least 5 of the available 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. Note: The Athlete at Risk Conditions quiz IS NOT part of the 2020 Virtual National Conference presentations. You are still required to complete this separate quiz by July 31st, 2022 and it is also worth 3 CEUs.

CEU Reporting Fee

A $20 CEU Reporting fee will be placed on the accounts of all CSCCa members ($30 for nonmembers) who do not register and pay for the 2020 CSCCa Virtual National Conference. The fee will be assessed the first week of January 2021 (shortly after the virtual conference presentations are no longer available). This fee covers the administrative costs for tracking the 15 CEUs an individual will need to turn into the CSCCa that they otherwise would have automatically obtained on their accounts by attending the Virtual National Conference.
