Here’s an interesting story for high school football coaches who likely take what they can get when it comes to a strength coach.
For a $245 fee, the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) offers a 21-hour strength training course to become a certified NCAA strength coach in any sport. By comparison, the widely-used Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCA) requires 30 times as much training — a 640-hour certification process.
I can only imagine what it takes to earn certification as a high school strength coach. If anyone has any information about the high school certification process, please reach out!
