Greetings from the CSCCa National Office! I want to take this opportunity to wish each of you a safe and successful athletic season.
Thank you for your support of the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches association (CSCCa). Our annual membership renewal drive is now underway.
I sincerely hope everyone is doing well as we enter the summer season. Everyone is working to determine if, when, and how athletes will return to their academic institutions in preparation for the fall athletic competitive season. This will vary from state to state and from institution to institution.
The College Athletic Trainers Society has developed a new resource that we want to make you aware of and which is made available on the CSCCa website.
Fad diets have taken over the nutrition industry, many of which promise quick weight loss or set guidelines that are not sustainable. One that has become increasingly more popular because of recommendations from doctors or endorsements by celebrities and athletes is intermittent fasting. Fasting is described as a voluntary or involuntary abstention from food, with food restriction being either partial or total.
In addition to great speakers and activities, a key part of the conference each year is a large, dynamic exhibit hall, showcasing the latest products and services in strength training, conditioning, speed & power development, sports nutrition, recovery, strength & conditioning technology, and more. We strongly encourage conference attendees to visit all exhibit booths, but especially those of our generous partnering sponsors
The 2018 CSCCa National Conference will be held in Fort Worth, Texas, May 9-11, at the Fort Worth Convention Center. We have a great conference planned with outstanding speakers. Conference presentations deal with various aspects of strength and conditioning applicable to all strength and conditioning coaches—no matter what sport or gender they coach. Find out more!
All candidates that have submitted their SCCC Application, Certification Fee, and Membership Dues, as per the February 21st deadline, please be aware of the following SCCC Certification Exam Reminders.

All CSCCa Members should have received an email with a link to a survey. The purpose of this survey is to identify tasks and knowledge reflective of the professional role of a strength and conditioning coach. The results of this survey will help in the development of the specifications for the CSCCa’s Strength and Conditioning Coach Certified (SCCC) certification exam.
