This is the news you have all been waiting for!!!! Athletic Performance Academy (APA) are pleased to announce that APA Director Daz Drake will be running APA’s first coaching certification, a 1st4sport Level 2 Strength & Conditioning qualification. The qualification is being run in conjunction with strength & conditioning education online, the highly successful S&C education business run by Brendan Chaplin.
Developed in partnership with the Rugby Football Union (RFU) the 1st4sport Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Strength and Conditioning for Sport (QCF) is designed to provide learners aged 16 and over with the level of knowledge needed to build and lead well-constructed strength and conditioning programmes through an understanding of how to plan, conduct and evaluate strength and conditioning sessions. This will enable successful learners to seek employment as a strength and conditioning coach in a number of settings such as a sports club, or with an athlete or team in an educational/youth environment.
Want to kick start your S&C career?
The reality is that currently there are no recognised strength & conditioning coaching qualification stepping stones to full UKSCA accreditation at this point in time. The workshops are excellent but they don’t provide the attendee with a qualification at the end. Therefore the majority of want to be S&C coaches are pursuing expensive qualifications in Gym Instructing and Personal training. A typical Level 2 course in Gym Instructing will be around £400 and a Level 3 Personal Training qualification comes in at around £1000 plus. This is not small change for any one, not least new up and coming S&C coaches looking to get themselves out there. Wouldn’t you rather spend your money on a more relevant qualifcation that prepares you to work with athletes?
Save your club money!
APA are really excited to be offering this opportunity to aspiring S&C coaches. Remember a Level 2 qualification is enough to let you run your own sessions so if you are a sports coaching business like many of APA’s partners are, and can’t afford to get an S&C coach to come in and run sessions for you on a part-time of fuller-time basis, then what are you waiting for? Send one of your sports coaches on this course and let them run the technical sessions and S&C sessions for you!!!!!
It’ll be the best £ 370 investment your club could make all year!!!!!!!
