The high school level is one of the fastest-growing segments of the strength & conditioning field. Opportunities to work with high school athletes or in high schools are at an all-time high. Unfortunately, these positions are often filled by people who may mean well, but are simply misguided and under-qualified. You have everyone from overzealous parents to sports coaches thinking they know how to train athletes, and the kids simply aren’t getting what they deserve.
Unfortunately, these misguided parents and coaches are often over-training the athletes, wasting their time and energy, or putting them in dangerous situations.
What young athletes need is an expert performance coach, someone like you, to help them reach their highest levels.
The IYCA is on a mission to change the landscape of strength & conditioning in high schools.
To make that possible, the IYCA has revamped the High School Strength & Conditioning Specialist Certification to ensure that it is the most comprehensive, practical and scientifically sound certification available for anyone working with high school athletes.
With authors from major colleges, NFL teams, highly-acclaimed high school programs and world-renowned sports performance facilities, the HSSCS is the gold-standard in education for the high school strength & conditioning coach. In fact, the HSSCS is the ONLY certification geared specifically to coaches working with high school athletes.
Training high school athletes can be difficult, and coaches should be extremely well-educated before implementing programs that have the potential to impact young athletes for the rest of their lives. Just because a coach is really strong, in great shape, watched some videos or attended a clinic does not make him/her qualified to work with young people.
That is precisely why the High School Strength & Conditioning Specialist Certification was created – to ensure that every coach has the foundational knowledge to give these kids the very best training programs available.
We want to empower all athletes to reach their full potential, whether that means simply making a high school team or moving on to the next level to play in college.
It’s about helping athletes build confidence, strength, and awareness. You help them build skills that they will take with them and use for the rest of their lives.
Working with high school athletes is about getting results, but it’s also about making a positive impact that will last a lifetime.
