NHSSCA Mission

We Saw A Need

In the summer of 2016, several high school coaches met to discuss the unique needs of our profession. The current state of high school strength coaches had left us disconnected, devalued and underserved. Although there are a few organizations and associations serving the field of strength and conditioning, none were dedicated solely to the high school strength coach.  It was decided that there was a better path. The National High School Strength Coaches Association (NHSSCA) was created to allow us to grow as true professionals and the movement began.

NHSSCA Vision

THE NHSSCA Program
of Excellence

There are thousands of coaches working hard every day at high schools across the country to provide the best developmental experience to their students. The NHSSCA strives to be a point of connection.

NHSSCA MOTO

EDUCATE.
EQUIP.
EMPOWER.

The NHSSCCA promotes the value of a qualified high school strength and conditioning professional so athletic administrators, academic administrators, school officials, and national educational organizations gain awareness of the inherent value of the high school strength and conditioning coach.

In November 2022, NHSSCA will release an on-demand, tiered strength and conditioning certification that will professionally meet the high school strength coach’s needs and ability.

#FAMILY

Rather than continue to be a collection of individuals or disconnected state coaching associations, the NHSSCA strives to be a point of connection. The value of any association is not in certification, clinic, or conference. The value rests in the ability to create connections and build relationships.

National Conference

NATCON is our annual #Family reunion and is more of an experience than an event. Starting with our social event Thursday and ending with the Partner Raffle on Saturday, this conference is the exclamation point at the end of our year. Featuring 14 presenters, 4 lectures, 8 hands-on sessions, our Awards Dinner, and countless opportunities to connect with coaches from around the country. 

State
Clinics

State Clinics are one-day events that allow attendees to learn, grow, and make connections with others in the strength and conditioning community. Clinics will feature 5 speakers, consist of both lecture and hands-on sessions, and will end with a coaches roundtable. 

Family
Day

Family Days are free 3-hour mini-clinics that include a lecture portion, hands-on session, and end with a coaches roundtable. These are a great opportunity to make connections with other coaches, teachers, admin, etc., and also allow non-members to experience why #Family is more than just a hashtag.
