As we approach the national conference each year, I reflect and marvel upon the growth the CSCCa has experienced. This year is an especially important year as it is our organization’s 20th anniversary celebration.
I vividly remember the organization’s first national conference, which was held in Salt Lake City, Utah, in May 2001. It was attended by 167 collegiate strength and conditioning coaches who believed in the newly created organization’s mission statement which centered on education, unity, and respect. Sixteen companies chose to exhibit at this inaugural CSCCa National Conference, recognizing the potential of this emerging organization to become a major influence in the strength and conditioning coaching profession.
Twenty years later, conference attendance is expected to surpass 1700, and there are currently 289 reserved exhibit booths representing 116 companies which feature the latest in strength training, conditioning, speed & power development, sports nutrition, recovery, strength & conditioning technology, and more! These exhibitors know that the CSCCa annual national conference is now undoubtedly the largest gathering of collegiate and professional-level strength and conditioning coaches in the country and is their best opportunity to connect with this important group.

You won’t want to miss these outstanding speakers who will be addressing topics of direct relevance to the strength and conditioning coaching profession no matter what sport or gender they coach. Attending the CSCCa annual national conference will provide 15 CEUs to be counted toward the 45-CEU requirement for the current CEU cycle, which will end July 31, 2022. Attendance at the CSCCa annual national conference each year continues to be the simplest, most time-efficient and beneficial way to obtain Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and maintain SCCC certification.
Don’t forget the free Gatorade sponsored and hosted pre-conference symposium which will be held on Wednesday, May 6, from 1:00-4:00 p.m. This event is a highlight of the conference each year and features great speakers with important information to share. Attendance at this event will provide an additional 3 CEUs.
2020 MSCC Reception, Dinner, & Ceremony –Change in Attire Requirements
You are strongly encouraged to attend the annual MSCC Dinner & Ceremony on Thursday evening. The dress code for this event is now business casual. Gatorade will be hosting a reception prior to the event which will begin at 6:15 p.m., followed by the dinner which will begin at 7:30 p.m.
The dinner & ceremony is scheduled to end at 9:30 p.m., so you will still have plenty of time to enjoy the nightlife that Disney offers. Please plan to join us for a fun-filled evening of great food and drink and camaraderie and show your support for your colleagues who are part of the 2020 Class of MSCC Inductees!
Come join us for 3 fun-filled, educational, and inspirational days dedicated to helping you become a more effective strength and conditioning coach! We sincerely hope to see you in Orlando at Walt Disney World’s Coronado Springs May 6-8.
