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.
We have collected some Covid-19 specific resources that may be helpful tools for our strength and conditioning community.
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.View Resources
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.Learn More
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.
Due to the restrictions around group gatherings, we understand there are questions and concerns about meeting the CEU requirements for recertification. We are working diligently to offer even more continuing education opportunities to make it easier for you to get CEUs while at home.
Our state, provincial, and regional volunteers continue to adapt and convert NSCA local events into virtual meetings. Attend virtual clinics and enjoy screen time with your local peers, and earn some CEUs.View All Virtual Clinics

Remember, you are allowed to report 0.5 CEUs of Personal Development per year. As with all CEUs, the completed activities must fall within the scope of practice for the NSCA certification held. This activity can be anything from reading books/articles, watching recorded webinars that are not pre-approved, or any self-development work.Learn More
You can also complete pre-approved home studies through other organizations. Many compelling topics are available from other trusted strength and conditioning education providers. Keep in mind these opportunities vary in CEU value and cost.Find a Home Study Course

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.
After many weeks of careful consideration, the NSCA has made the decision to transition this year’s Tactical Annual Training to a completely virtual event. The event will now take place as a multi-day online event and is scheduled for the same dates of August 25-28, 2020.Learn More
CANCELED: After many weeks of careful consideration, the NSCA has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s National Conference scheduled for July 8-11, 2020 in Las Vegas. The health and safety of our members, partners, and staff are our top priority, and although it is unfortunate, canceling the conference is for the best. Everyone registered for the 2020 National Conference will receive a full refund in the coming weeks. We appreciate your patience as the NSCA has navigated this unprecedented process.Learn More
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.
At this time, there are no plans to make any changes to the recertification process or requirements. But we are closely monitoring the situation and will update the website in the future should there be any change. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
