Level 1 ASCA Strength and Conditioning Coaching Course

APA has partnered with ASCA to provide the Level 1 ASCA Strength and Conditioning Coaching Course, specifically adapted for sports physiotherapists.

The ASCA coaching programs are registered with the National Coach Accreditation Scheme (NCAS), which is administered by the Australian Sports Commission and is recognised as an industry leader via international affiliates across the globe. The course provides participants with the knowledge and skills to understand, apply and design programs including basic training principles and variables to physically prepare beginner level athletes to improve their sports performance.

This adapted course will be conducted over one full day and is only available to SPA members. Participants must attend the full 1 day course, and required further practical supervision post-course (30 hours) with an ASCA coach, to gain accreditation.
