Upcoming Change in Policy Regarding SCCC Certification

16 December 2014

Dear CSCCa Member, I want to take this opportunity to wish you and yours and very happy holiday season! As 2014 is coming to a close, I want to thank you for your continued support of the CSCCa and its mission to promote and service the needs of the collegiate and professional-level strength and conditioning coach. Great things can be accomplished as we all work together to improve the profession. I also wanted to make you aware of a change in policy that affects the SCCC certification requirements. In the past, we have only required individuals with 12 years or more of full-time strength and conditioning coaching experience on the collegiate and professional level to sit for the written portion of the certification examination. In order to remain NCCA compliant, however, it will be necessary for all future SCCC candidates, regardless of their years of experience, to take both the practical and written portion of the SCCC certification exam. This new policy will go into effect after the May 2015 SCCC certification examination. Individuals with a minimum of 12 experiences in the field, however, will continue to be exempt from the practicum/internship requirement. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the new policy and its scheduled implementation, please be sure and contact the CSCCa National Office at 801-375-9400 or by email at Best wishes during the holiday season! Sincerely, Dr Chuck Stiggins
