Lance Vermeil Scholarship Award

In 2012, MF Athletic/Perform Better, a CSCCa sponsor, instituted the $1500 Lance Vermeil Scholarship Award in memory of Lance Vermeil, who was an extremely qualified and dedicated young strength and conditioning coach. Coach Vermeil was committed to the profession of collegiate strength and conditioning and, most importantly, to serving and protecting the student athlete.

CSCCa-approved mentors are encouraged to submit nomination letters for students, interns, or part-time strength and conditioning coaches on their staffs who they believe are deserving of receiving this scholarship. Submissions should emailed to the CSCCa National Office at info@cscca.org. Nominations are due each year by April 15th. These individuals must have shown a commitment to having a career in the field of strength and conditioning on the collegiate and/or professional level and must have demonstrated tremendous potential and inclination for this unique profession. In addition this individual must be SCCC Certified or planning to sit for the SCCC Certification Exam at the upcoming National Conference.

Al Vermeil, the father of Lance and a 2007 Legend in the Field of Strength and Conditioning, presented the first inaugural Lance Vermeil Scholarship Award at the Master Strength and Conditioning Coaches Dinner and Ceremony on Thursday, May 10, 2012, at the CSCCa Annual National Conference in Orlando, Florida.
