NSCA Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

As an international professional community that supports athletic performance and health, we recognize how we are all impacted by the worldwide coronavirus outbreak. This page has been developed to keep you updated on NSCA’s efforts and activities.

UPDATED June 8, 2021


We have collected some Covid-19 specific resources that may be helpful tools for our strength and conditioning community.

  • Return to Training Resources

    The NSCA’s COVID-19 Return to Training Taskforce has created a guiding document and checklist as resources for strength and conditioning professionals who are part of the organizational planning process at their various institutions and places of business.  The purpose of the guiding document is to compile and summarize pertinent information to support safe and appropriate training practices with teams, athletes, and clients during the expected transition period back to full training activity.

  • Insurance Coverage for CPI Members

    The NSCA General Liability coverage will defend CPI members from a negligence claim/lawsuit brought by a client alleging they contracted the Coronavirus during a training session. As you conduct your work, we encourage you to consult CDC's Coronavirus resource page for best practices and fact sheets.
