Overview

Although we could not host the 2020 NSCA National Conference, we are still determined to provide some of the great learning opportunities as virtual sessions. The conference committee handpicked 12 sessions considered hot topics for 2020. The sessions will be delivered as a virtual event over two days, structured so you can choose just the sessions you want. The more you choose, the more you save.

This customizable approach offers a way for you to get the exact number of Category A CEUs needed for the Recertification deadline (Dec. 31st). Plus, you will have access for a year to re-watch at your convenience.

LTAD 4 Hour Pre Con

NSCA Virtual Long-Term Athletic Development Pre-Conference 

This virtual pre-conference is for trainers, coaches, therapists, physical educators, community recreation leaders and those that operate in the youth sport and physical activity space. Each session will discuss and examine implementation of the LTAD framework in different sectors to re-imagine youth athletic development and physical activity. 

High-level practitioners and thought leaders in sport, science, and physical activity will engage participants in an interactive Q&A/chat format to share insight, discuss barriers, and provide solutions and best practice for the grass-roots practitioner. 

Objectives:
  1. Engage participants to define and identify gaps in knowledge and practice regarding the LTAD framework.
  2. Provide attendees with solution-focused strategies to enhance youth athletic development and physical activity in the school, community, and youth sport setting.
  3. Identify essential steps to operationalize LTAD in the school, community, and youth sport setting that offer quality and impactful sport, physical education, and physical activity experiences.
