2020 CSCCa Virtual National Conference

Click HERE for information on how to access the 2020 CSCCa Virtual National Conference.


The CSCCa hosts a national conference each year. This event is designed to keep strength and conditioning coaches current on the latest developments in the field. Due to health concerns related to the coronavirus, the 2020 national conference will be taking place online. The virtual national conference is tentatively scheduled to become available on May 7, 2020.

Participating in this virtual national conference will provide coaches with access to the speaker presentations for three months, providing them with the opportunity to complete multiple-choice quizzes with five questions each for any five selected presentations to earn 15 CEUs towards maintaining SCCC certification. It will feature many of the same speakers as announced for the 2020 national conference in Orlando, with a few substitutions or additions as required. More information on speaker presentations will be forthcoming.

The cost for participating in the virtual national conference will be the same as it would have been had you attended the 2020 national conference in person. As per usual, the pricing depends on your current employment status as full-time, part-time, emeritus, or student/ intern as well as whether or not you have paid your 19-20 membership dues. Any payments for the 2020 national conference in Orlando can be rolled over towards the 2020 virtual national conference.

Please reach out to the national office at finance@cscca.org with any questions or concerns about registration or previously paid conference fees.
