Best wishes as we enter the beginning of the 2020 holiday season! As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I reflect upon the many blessings in my life. My association with the member coaches of the CSCCa is always at the top of my list.
Mark your calendars now and please plan to attend and help us celebrate the CSCCa’s 20th anniversary at the 2021 CSCCa National Conference! The National Conference will be held at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX. The dates of the conference are Wednesday, May 5, through Friday, May 7, 2021.
Whole food and “real” food diets have recently been a popular topic of discussion in the sports world. Many dietitians and sports professionals have adopted the “food first” principle. But, how do we guide athletes to make appropriate choices to fuel themselves with the limitless number of products found in stores?
Just a reminder that while the 2021 CSCCa National Conference is still several months away, the time is passing quickly and will be here before we know it!
The most widely researched supplement within the field of nutrigenomics is caffeine. Caffeine is a broadly used stimulant that increases activity in the brain, with approximately 75% of competitive athletes using it as an ergogenic aid to enhance performance.
Greetings from the CSCCa National Office! I want to take this opportunity to wish each of you a safe and successful athletic season.
Whether your program has a fueling station that provides pre-packaged ready-to-eat shelf stable foods, or foods needing refrigeration like fresh fruit and cheese, it is important that you are serving safe food to athletes.
As we are now well into August, I am hopeful that most of you are back at your institutions preparing for the fall athletic season. We encourage everyone to take recommended precautions to ensure the health and safety of you, your staff, and your athletes.
Thank you for your support of the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches association (CSCCa). Our annual membership renewal drive is now underway.
Being able to track progress and show validation of a service or product is a key component in almost any facet of work. This statement is especially true for both nutrition and strength practitioners and programs where numbers or photos can clearly exhibit development.
