Annual Awards

William J. Kraemer Outstanding Sport Scientist Award

Recipients of the William J. Kraemer Outstanding Sport Scientist Award are recognized for exemplary contributions and breakthroughs in the field of applied exercise and sport science. Dr. Kraemer’s desire was to demonstrate to the world that the NSCA was not only an organization for high-level strength and conditioning coaches, but also one through which the science of strength and conditioning contributes to the fields that utilize strength and conditioning practices. Dr. Bill Kraemer is a well-respected sports scientist whose impact on the NSCA is unmatched.
