BCA Endorsement

History 5.5a

In an effort to decrease or eliminate the number of injuries and deaths during off-season conditioning practices in collegiate athletes, the Black Coaches & Administrators (BCA) has announced its support for the National Strength and Conditioning Association's Registered Strength and Conditioning Coach (RSCC) program and supports requiring the RSCC program for all college strength coaches. The goal is to enhance the safety of college athletes throughout the country by recognizing strength and conditioning coaches that have proper training and experience, and are certified with an accredited certification.
