Our Vision

The CSCA is an organization that elevates our profession. We create and promote standards of practice for S&C coaches that can be utilized throughout their professional careers and guide the hiring practices of employers in the public and private sectors.

Our Mission

To facilitate collaboration and aid the professional growth of strength & conditioning coaches in Canada.

Our Statement of Purpose

The Canadian Strength and Conditioning Association (CSCA) serves as a means for S&C coaches to share, collaborate, and connect with fellow coaches in varied sectors including, but not limited to, public schools, universities and colleges, high performance sport, independent operators, and community centre employed individuals from coast to coast.

The primary objective of our association is sharing stories about S&C coaches working in Canada, and Canadian S&C coaches working abroad. Additionally, our goal is the dissemination of information to aid in the professional growth of S&C coaches in Canada. Strength and conditioning coaches have the needed platform to share strategies and research of best practices in working with beginners to sport, youth athletes, weekend-warriors, amateur athletes and professional athletes.

Diversity and Inclusion Goals

  • 40% of the Board comprised of females and BIPOC individuals: 2023 = 43%

  • 50% of the speakers at our annual conference comprised of female and BIPOC individuals: 2022 = 71%

The Canadian Strength and Conditioning Association is committed to expanding the diversity and inclusivity of our Coaches and Membership through the modeling of a diverse Board of Directors, Advisory Team, contributors and presenters at our events. We believe that through an inclusive sharing of ideas and values our industry will become stronger and better represent our membership and coaches in Canada.

The CSCA will continue to work on initiatives to increase and retain diversity and inclusion in the profession through collaborations, professional development and assisting in career recognition, and will operate in a transparent fashion to promote our contributions to diversity and inclusion in our industry.
