Are you a young professional looking to broaden your knowledge and career horizons by working with a professional strength and conditioning coach? Apply for the NSCA Foundation Assistantship!
The NSCA offers up to five assistantships each year to qualified candidates. Candidates who are awarded an assistantship will have an opportunity to work closely with, and be mentored by, an experienced strength and conditioning coach who has earned the NSCA Registered Strength and Conditioning Coach (RSCC) distinction.
Each recipient will be awarded a $10,000 stipend over a 5-month period for completing 40 hours a week.
The purpose of the Assistantship Program is to link qualified CSCS-certified strength and conditioning specialists with experienced coaches to help develop the next generation of strength and conditioning professionals. This is an excellent opportunity for the college graduate to gain practical, applied experience in strength and conditioning while learning from a highly skilled and educated mentor. Additionally, the Assistantship program is an exceptional vehicle for the established strength and conditioning professional to access qualified apprentices.
"The assistantship can be a huge advantage for a young strength and conditioning coach as it can open doors and introduce them to not only their direct mentors but others that they can learn from. If you have an opportunity to apply for this program, you absolutely should."-Trevor Klump, Former Assistantship RecipientTweet this quote
