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 January 14, 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.

  • NSCA Foundation Relief Grant

    The “NSCA Foundation Relief Grant” will provide a one-time grant of $2,000 to members of the NSCA who have been financially impacted by COVID-19, whether through a decrease in wages or loss of employment that results in a lack of resources to pay for essential expenses.

  • 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.

NSCA Events

Since the CDC currently recommends to not hold large in-person events, we are evaluating each upcoming event and making decisions on a case-by-case basis.  Some events may be postponed to a later date or switched to a virtual event. Please check the status of each event page. Check back often for updates. 

  • State, Provincial and Regional Events

    Due to the CDCs recommendation to limit the number of attendees for live events, all State/Provincial & Regional Events planned will be delivered either virtually or postponed.

  • Exam Prep Live Clinics

    To accommodate the Safer-At-Home orders we will be offering a couple of webinars. And, as the country moves forward to a 'new normal', each state and university will have their own requirements. This will continue to result in some cancellations, but we anticipate some in-person events with restrictions. Please check the status for each event and related details.
