From The Desk Of

Dr. Chuck Stiggins

By Dr. Chuck Stiggins, Executive Director, CSCCa

What a year 2020 has been! Due to COVID-19 most of you were forced away from your colleges and universities as well as your athletes. The CSCCa, in turn, was forced to cancel the 2020 CSCCa National Conference and postpone the organization’s 20th Anniversary Celebration until next year. As an alternative to the 2020 CSCCa National Conference in Orlando, we were able to offer a Virtual 2020 CSCCa National Conference option, which included speaker presentations as well as some Q&A sessions with the speakers. We sincerely hope that those of you who registered for the Virtual National Conference are enjoying the presentations and finding the information provided to be extremely beneficial and helpful to you in your job as a strength and conditioning coach. The annual CSCCa Female Strength Coaches’ Meeting was able to be held as usual through Zoom. Isn’t technology wonderful? Many thanks to Gatorade for sponsoring the event, PLAE for hosting it and Stacey Torman for pulling everything together! As we look forward to next year’s conference, I can promise you that all activities, gifts and events from the 2020 National Conference are being pushed to 2021 and that this upcoming conference will be even better than the celebration originally planned. The 2021 CSCCa National Conference and 20th Anniversary Celebration will truly be a historic event, and we sincerely hope that you will join us in Fort Worth, Texas, to help us celebrate this special moment in time. Since this is our 20th Anniversary Commemorative Magazine I would like to take the opportunity to review our most significant accomplishments over the past 12 months. The CSCCa/NSCA Joint Consensus Document: Safe Return to Training Following Inactivity was published in the June 2019 issue of the NSCA’s Strength & Conditioning Journal. This landmark document provides best practices guidelines for transition periods — a time identified as especially high risk for student-athletes. CSCCa Board of Directors Member Don Decker led this committee and developed two important safety protocols. Dr. Tony Caterisano, a member of the CSCCa Written Certification Committee, directed a second group of educators who completed a review of the scientific literature to provide support and documentation for the protocols and helped develop the document. This document offers specific procedures for strength and conditioning coaches to follow to safely and appropriately adjust volume, load and intensity for various groups of athletes. Formulas are provided that can be applied to individual programs without stifling the creativity and expertise of the strength and conditioning coach. Safe, evidence-based boundaries have been established to prevent the athlete from experiencing too much, too soon while giving the strength and conditioning coach latitude regarding how to keep the program variables within a safe training zone for all athletes. These specific joint recommendations work hand-in-hand with the NCAA’s 2019 interassociation

document designed to prevent catastrophic injury and death in college student athletes — a goal we ALL share. The 2020 Virtual CSCCa National Conference includes a presentation by Coach Decker regarding the implementation of the protocols. Attendees are provided with written materials that are extremely helpful for incorporating the guidelines into their own strength and conditioning programs. In keeping with the CSCCa’s continued focus on athlete health and safety and the prevention of deaths and injuries during strength and conditioning sessions, another milestone was achieved with the incorporation of a Health and Safety CEU course on the CSCCa website regarding exertionrelated health concerns as related to strength and conditioning programming and implementation. While many of the areas covered are primarily handled by the sports medicine staff, it is extremely important that strength and conditioning coaches have a basic, working knowledge of the following: • Concussion • Exertional Rhabdomyolysis • Exertional Heat Illness • Respiratory Illness

• Cardiovascular Illness • Sickle Cell Trait

• Emergency Action Plans (EAP)

The application of the guidelines and information presented in the CSCCa/NSCA Joint Consensus Document is also part of the course. As part of the CEU course requirement, every SCCC certificant is required to pass a 35-question multiple choice quiz with a minimum score of 80 percent (28 out of 35) once during each 3-year CEU cycle. Upon obtaining a passing score, 3 CEUs will automatically be applied to the individual’s account, and the health and safety requirement will be marked as fulfilled for the current CEU cycle for all SCCC certificants. All CSCCa member coaches — whether or not they are SCCC certified, are encouraged to complete the quiz and to review the recommended study materials. Another major accomplishment this past year was the publication of the CSCCa textbook: The Professional’s Guide to Strength & Conditioning. This textbook is obviously a great study tool for SCCC candidates, but it is also a beneficial resource and reference for all strength and conditioning coaches as well as a valuable asset to any exercise science/ strength and conditioning course curriculum. As we hit this major milestone of our 20-year anniversary, this provides a great opportunity for reflection and celebration regarding how far we have come as an organization and as a profession, as well as excitement and anticipation regarding our continued progression as we enter a new decade. Our future is bright!

ETHAN REEVE Current CSCCa President

Making Real Connections Ethan Reeve, pictured front row center

Ethan Reeve cherishes the pioneer days of the CSCCa. No one truly knew just how successful the fledgling organization would be back in the early 2000s, but there were indicators even then that something special was on the horizon. Some of those indicators, like the establishment of the Master Strength and Conditioning Coach title of distinction or the rigorous certification process, became apparent as the organization grew and matured, gaining national recognition and furthering the profession like never before. Other indicators were so subtle, you’d easily miss them. Yet, they were absolutely critical to long term success. “The most fun about those pioneer days was that strength coaches actually got together,” Reeve says. “We’d go out for drinks or have dinner, and it was a way for us to connect and share ideas.” See, right there, in a turn of phrase seemingly more steeped in nostalgia than substance, the current CSCCa President gives an enormous clue as to the secret of the organization’s success. Did you catch it? “To connect,” he says. Reeve would be the first to tell you of the importance of all the CSCCa’s banner accomplishments – and there have been many. But when pressed to share the single most important factor in their success, he can’t help but return to one principle over and over again. Athletic performance coaching is a people business. It’s about making real connections with people. That applies to coaches in their day-to-day interactions with sport coaches and athletes, and doubly so for the association representing them on all fronts over the last two decades. “You have to make a connection with your athletes,” Reeve says. “Observe and see where they are and have a vision for where you want them to go, and hopefully you get them to see that same vision. “It’s the connection from one human being to another that will hopefully help to make a difference in their lives.” Much has changed since the pioneer days, to be sure. Before the CSCCa began, Reeve worked at Ohio University with one graduate assistant, overseeing training for over 600 athletes.

Within about a year of the CSCCa’s inaugural meeting, he took the head strength and conditioning job at Wake Forest University, where he coached for 16 years. “When I got to Wake Forest it was me and two other assistants and I thought I was in heaven,” Reeve jokes. “We had about 450 athletes.” Today, there are about a dozen full-time strength and conditioning coaches for the Demon Deacons. It’s hard to imagine this explosion of opportunity being possible without Reeve’s efforts locally, and of course, the CSCCa advocating for the profession nationally. While Reeve celebrates the strides the profession has made in the last 20 years, he laments the loss of that fundamental connection that comes from working with a small team of strength and conditioning coaches. “In some ways we’ve lost that family environment,” he says. With big-money revenue and even bigger competitive drive yielding increased staff sizes and budgets for technology and equipment at universities across the country, Reeve hopes coaches will continue to remember their No. 1 priority — the student-athletes. “Every sport is important and every kid is important,” Reeve says. “I don’t ever get into who the starters are. I don’t even want to know. When they walk in the room, they get my attention.” When coaches forge strong connections with their studentathletes, every other aspect of the athletic program, from recruiting to facility management, becomes easier. Ultimately, the same can be said for the CSCCa and the profession as a whole. For Reeve personally, who’s been coaching since 1985, the student-athletes remain the reason why he continues to strive for excellence. “I still love getting on the platforms, being in the trenches and coaching the kids up,” Reeve says. “What you do in that workout and what you do in those running drills, how you teach and how you motivate, it’s still the most important thing that we can do.”

STACEY TORMAN Current CSCCa Vice President

Shining Together Stacey Torman, pictured center

Stacey Torman wanted the respect that comes with being a Master Strength and Conditioning Coach (MSCC). When the current CSCCa Vice President approached CSCCa Executive Director Dr. Chuck Stiggins more than 15 years ago about being the organization’s first to hold the MSCC distinction as a female, she admits it was more about a personal goal, gaining some credibility and spotlight within her own athletic program, than a desire to be a role model. “Initially it was more selfish than anything else,” Torman says. “But then, more and more, it became evident that Chuck and Becky [Stiggins] cared about us as people and professionals, and that’s driven me to, with as much as they give, I just want to give back as much, if not more.” Much like the organization she has so faithfully devoted herself to over the years, Torman has grown so much since then, giving back in innumerable ways beyond being named the first female MSCC in 2004. That position in the history books, as well as her current leadership role, remind her how fortunate she has been to be a part of the CSCCa family. “It’s taking all those differences that everybody has and pulling them together for a common goal,” Torman says. “Our common goal is to provide strength and conditioning coaches with a voice and a place to be together, learn together and make this profession the best that it can be.” For coaches trying to navigate the treacherous waters of a young profession, the CSCCa stands as a beacon of light, set on a hill, for every coach who is serious about being a strength and conditioning professional to rely on for peerless guidance, even amidst the most harrowing storms.

As a perfect example of this, Torman helped to organize a virtual meeting for the 2020 CSCCa Annual Female Strength Coaches’ Breakfast, an event that is always a highlight every year at the CSCCa National Conference. When the storm that is COVID-19 dashed the hopes of coaches assembling together in person, Torman set up an alternative to fill the need for unity. “The first year we held the Female Strength Coaches’ Breakfast, we had maybe 10-15 people,” Torman remembers. “Having that camaraderie, we built on it the next year and the year after that. It’s just important to see someone that you remember and then be able to talk with them throughout the year.” Thoughtful, timely steps, like holding the breakfast via Zoom, continue to serve the profession as it navigates an unprecedented year, weathering a set of circumstances beyond anyone’s control. The guiding light of the CSCCa has continued to be well kept, and the darker the circumstances, the brighter it shines. As one might expect, the MSCCs have continued to be the association’s primary stewards of this awesome responsibility, going far beyond their roles as board members, commission leaders or examination administrators. They continue to serve the profession as so much more — as inspired visionaries, seasoned mentors, wise advisors and true friends to any coach who might be struggling. “The Master Coaches, we always tell the younger coaches to stop us in the hallway and ask us questions,” Torman says. “We aren’t above anybody else. We’re normal people with the same struggles that you have. And I’ve always felt like I’m just part of the team.”

JEFF MADDEN CSCCa President 2009-2016

Adding Value, One Step At A Time Jeff Madden, pictured second from the left

Jeff Madden was surprised to see Dr. Chuck Stiggins and his wife Becky. Yet, back in 2000, through the window of his somewhat gaudy office at the University of Texas, there they were, waving to him from the floor of his weight room. “I said to myself, that looks like the BYU coach,” Madden remembers with a chuckle. Inside the office, Stiggins’ pitch to Madden was simple, yet compelling. They believed that full-time strength and conditioning coaches were deserving of recognition, respect and fair wages and asked for Madden’s help in forming an organization of their own. “He did a great job of presenting it,” Madden remembers. “He said, ‘I know you’re doing well here at Texas, but there are coaches out here making $12,000 [annually].” The longtime-Longhorn coach could hardly believe what he was hearing, and immediately jumped on board to serve on the original CSCCa Board of Directors. His leadership, including his time as president from 2009-2016, has helped add value to strength and conditioning coaches everywhere, and in far more meaningful ways than just their salary. Since the CSCCa was founded, Madden says every year the organization has emphasized making young strength and conditioning coaches feel welcome, and encouraging them to add their voice to the conversation. Over time, this approach has yielded more and more value by adding a wealth of new ideas from coaches with vastly different backgrounds and perspectives. “I had my first job at 21, and now 37 years later, I’m one of the old guys. Now I’m a senior advisor. I’m getting old,”

Madden says with a laugh. “I’ve sat in the meetings with athletic directors, on different councils, on the President’s Council on Minority Affairs. I’ve been blessed to be a part of many things that enhanced our athletic programs.” Madden stands with scores of other CSCCa member coaches across the country who have been leading the charge on making athletics better, not just for themselves, or their sport – but for athletes everywhere. Their process is simple, but requires diversity, inclusion and a lack of ego. For Madden, the steps that lead to better coaches, athletes and athletics as a whole remain the same. Form committees. Talk about new ideas. Bring new concepts forward. Push yourself outside of your comfort zone. Lend an ear and open mind to someone who differs from you. Perhaps this approach won’t make you a coach who revolutionizes programming for generations to come. Maybe there won’t be a paradigm shift because of your research or philosophy. But every step along the way helps to make the path for others easier to traverse — and that means something. In the end, regardless of what coaches do to further the profession, Madden encourages them to keep their focus on the task at hand of maximizing athletic performance within their athletes. There is no simpler step that can be taken by the individual coach or the CSCCa as a whole that will have a more positive impact. “Little things make a big difference, but we can never forget that the hard work needs to be done,” Madden says. “The athletes have to be ready for competition and if they aren’t, it will show when you play a good team.”

ROB OVIATT CSCCa President 2004–2009

No Guarantees, Just Vision And Good People Rob Oviatt, pictured far right

If an athletic director wanted to hire a strength and conditioning coach around the turn of the millennium, and the coach told them they were certified by the CSCCa, the coach would have been met with a really puzzled look. In 1999, the CSCCa wasn’t a leader in strength and conditioning. It wasn’t an ally and advocate for full-time collegiate strength and conditioning coaches everywhere. It wasn’t a superior choice for athletic performance coaching certification. It didn’t, in fact, exist. Rob Oviatt, CSCCa President from 2004-2009, doesn’t take this reality for granted. As one of the founding members of the organization, he knows that despite what it may seem like today, the CSCCa had to beat extremely long odds to become the gold standard in the profession that it is today. “In the early years, there was no guarantee that it would succeed at all,” Oviatt says. “There were a bunch of us who wanted to see it succeed and had a vision for something better for our profession.” The vision, Oviatt will be first to tell you, started with Dr. Chuck Stiggins, who organized the small group of founding members into a team that would change the profession, and as a result, all of college athletics, forever. As good leaders tend to do, his vision quickly spread to the others, and they were unified in making that vision become a reality. But how does a small group of individuals, even with the clearest of pictures about what they are trying to achieve, find success among an ocean of challenges, pitfalls and setbacks? “Like any organization, you’re only as good as the people in it,” Oviatt says. “We were very fortunate to have some great leadership and some very passionate strength coaches who love this profession and wanted to see if they could do anything to make it better.” From the founding board, to the newest member today, the strength of the CSCCa has been and will continue to be its members. No genius idea or can’t-miss marketing strategy

could ever carry an organization to such heights — at least, not when the stakes are about so much more than the bottom line. To be great in this business, the coaching business, takes a lot of people who are driven by a love for their athletes and a desire to give of themselves selflessly. These are the values, Oviatt says, that set CSCCa members apart. “It’s always been a struggle in a lot of ways, but a struggle that everyone embraced because they were doing it for the right reasons,” he says. The loyalty CSCCa members have to one another, the friendships they have forged, the humility and sense of teamwork they display, the mutual trust and respect they regularly demonstrate for one another — these are the reasons why the CSCCa has continued to move the profession forward for the last two decades. What’s even more amazing, the members of this unique organization do it all with limited opportunities to interact and see each other face-to-face. Such is the special bond they share. Such is the passion they have for giving the best to their student-athletes. “Ninety-five percent of the strength and conditioning coaches in this country don’t see each other except after certain competitions or at the conference,” Oviatt says. “When you get to the conference and you haven’t seen someone in a year, it’s always amazing how things pick up like you haven’t even been apart.” For Oviatt personally, he knows the profession is everchanging, but says the organization stands ready to evolve with the profession to serve the needs of coaches everywhere. The vision hasn’t changed, and while the faces and names of the membership certainly have, their character and spirit continue to show unlimited potential for what’s still to come. “I wouldn’t trade it for anything,” Oviatt says. “It’s turned out to be just an outstanding organization, and in my opinion, it gets better every year.”

MIKE CLARK CSCCa President 2001–2004

With All Due Respect Mike Clark, pictured center

Mike Clark well remembers the early days. He remembers the hopeful uncertainty of daring to start a new organization specifically for full-time collegiate strength and conditioning coaches. He remembers the feeling of donning the Master Strength and Conditioning Coach jacket for the first time. He even remembers that fateful hot air balloon ride over Park City, Utah, in July of 2000, resulting in a bumpy landing, as well as a pair of split pants for one unlucky original CSCCa board member. Clark served as CSCCa President during the pivotal years of 2001 to 2004, and as he recalls, the balloon landing wasn’t the only early turbulence the organization withstood. During the implementation of the practical exam protocol, for example, Clark remembers coaches having some strong opinions about what was the best way forward — opinions that weren’t always easy to unify. “I wouldn’t say heated, but there were some very tense discussions,” Clark says. “I think that’s still present today. I hope it’s still as strong as it was back then.” Of course, CSCCa leadership eventually did find consensus on the practical exam protocol, which has changed precious little over the lifetime of the organization and remains one of Clark’s proudest accomplishments. But perhaps even more impressive is the spirit and attitude of humility and respect that led to this landmark accomplishment, and many others just like it. It’s a common punchline for the worst insults to be notso-cleverly disguised with the preemptive phrase, “With all due respect.” Essentially, when one hears this phrase, what follows is usually neither pleasant nor productive. In the case of the leaders who formed the foundations of the CSCCa, all due respect was not a punchline, as they were brave enough to speak their minds with unpopular

opinions, yet humble enough to listen to the views of the other board members with an open mind. The respect and humility they showed still serves as an example for how young strength and conditioning coaches should strive to move forward together. The fruits of their labor was an organization with both unyielding core principles and a structure that lends itself to constant evolution. “There were a few sparks flying and iron really does sharpen iron,” Clark says. “But that’s okay, it was done in a very judicious and respectful way, and we all became better because of it. “You never find a compromise from a weak person. You never find consideration from a very weak person. Everyone there had the ability to listen, and to compromise, and to take someone else’s opinion and to value it.” Even in those first meetings back in Park City, there was no celebration of unanimous agreement going on behind closed doors. Clark describes discussions comprised much more of hard work and the utmost attention to detail. “Those meetings were long and grueling.” he says. “We would lock ourselves in a room for eight, nine, ten hours a day. “We were trying to be so thorough and discuss every aspect of what might come up. We wanted to make the association bulletproof, so to speak, so that it could stand the test of time.” And stand the test of time, it has. Twenty years and countless equally careful deliberations later, the mutual respect of the top collegiate strength and conditioning coaches in the country has yielded an association that has earned all of the respect an organization of its caliber is due. Even more importantly, the CSCCa has elevated the level of respect for its member coaches, and the profession as a whole, on a massive scale.

DR. CHUCK STIGGINS CSCCa Founder and First President

A Home For The Strength And Conditioning Coach Dr. Chuck Stiggins, pictured second from the right

Twenty years. What an accomplishment. It would be impressive enough to build an organization from nothing and survive for two decades, but the CSCCa has not only survived, it has thrived, growing and improving year over year. For founder, inaugural president and current Executive Director Dr. Chuck Stiggins, the true measure of the association’s success aligns with the ultimate goal of the founding members — to create a home for full-time collegiate strength and conditioning coaches that meets their unique needs. After 20 years of doing precisely that, with no one else even trailing as a distant second, the CSCCa has accomplished its goal. “This organization was built by strength and conditioning coaches, for strength and conditioning coaches,” Stiggins says. “In the last 20 years, the strength and conditioning coach has gone from the cellar to the very top of the heap.” The truth behind those words can be witnessed within athletic programs everywhere. When the CSCCa was founded, the strength and conditioning coach was on the verge of being swept under the purview of other departments. Now, some of the most influential head sport coaches choose their strength and conditioning coach before filling any other role on staff. This is due in no small part to the three-pronged certification approach of the CSCCa, which imbues its member coaches with tremendous value. The internship program gives coaches an opportunity to gain invaluable experience under the watchful eye of a certified mentor. The written exam forces coaches to demonstrate their understanding of the science of athletic performance, and the practical exam challenges them to show they can apply it in a real world environment. Fuse these elements together under the guidance of the Master Strength and Conditioning Coach (MSCC), and CSCCa member coaches exemplify the consummate professional.

“We knew we needed to bridge the gap between the weight room and the classroom,” Stiggins says. “Establishing our SCCC certification was huge, but the Master Strength and Conditioning Coach is the best of the best. Our veterans not only teach practical lessons to young coaches, they teach them all of the intangibles of the business.” Few people on this earth could lay claim to the sort of transformative influence Dr. Chuck Stiggins and his wife Becky have had on the strength and conditioning coaching profession. With nothing more than a vision of what could be, they pulled a team of coaches together with countless phone calls, emails and campus visits, and set out on this 20-year mission to educate, unify and earn respect for the profession. They will be the first to admit how absolutely critical the support of the MSCCs has been over the years. From the original board of directors to the current board, Stiggins describes them as “great men and women” and “true professionals” who have been the backbone of the association since the beginning. Together, all of their efforts have resulted in an organization like no other for coaches to call their own. Education remains a priority, the members stay unified in their common goal while also becoming more diverse and nuanced in their background and experiences, and the respect for what it means to be a strength and conditioning coach has never been higher. “Everything we’ve done within this organization is to make a better life for the strength and conditioning coaches and their families,” Stiggins says. “We want to make sure that every one of us is treated exactly the same, as first-class citizens. “This profession and this organization, there aren’t words to describe it. I love it with all my heart and my soul. I’m grateful to have had this opportunity to help people and move the profession forward.”
