ABOUT SCS

NETWORK FOR SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH

The SCS is a non-profit, international association devoted to fostering scientific research in the field of strength and conditioning. Through its sport sciences and clinical multi-disciplinary team of professionals, SCS aims to examine strength training and conditioning from a multifaceted perspective, including all physiological, biomechanical, psychological and epidemiological aspects. Thus, it strives to improve knowledge in the area of strength and conditioning and its broad application to sports performance, injury prevention, rehabilitation, and health improvement. It contributes to the dissemination of this knowledge to the scientific community and encourages initiatives aimed at increasing public awareness of findings in terms of strength and conditioning research and practice.

PLATFORM FOR S&C EDUCATION

The SCS promotes education in the field of strength and conditioning. Towards this aim, it organises education and certification courses, seminars and scientific congresses in order to foster excellence in the strength and conditioning community and provide internationally recognised certificates of respective education. It contributes to the publication of dedicated periodicals and scientific journals, to disseminate state-of-the-art research findings to its members and the wider scientific community.

SPACE FOR PROFESSIONAL COLLABORATION

The SCS collaborates with, supports the work of, and promotes existing national strength and conditioning associations and organisations. The Society works in cooperation with various public and private health institutions, and sport clubs of different countries. It further favours contacts across its members to establish joint educational standards and promote collaborative research efforts in the field of strength and conditioning.


ABOUT UCAM

ABOUT

Since its creation, the Catholic University of Murcia has considered sports as one of its fundamental pillars. It implements a university model that, every year with more strength, tries to instill in its students the motivation, spirit and love for sport. 

 

But UCAM’s ambition is not only to offer its students the possibility of joining prestigious clubs, but the university is also committed to offering athletes from practically all disciplines the possibility of combining university studies with their sporting careers at the highest level. This continued commitment to sport has been rewarded in terms of results with the consolidation of the UCAM as one of the best universities in Spain in sports.

 

The Spanish Olympic Committee and the Catholic University of Murcia joined forces in 2012 in a sports and educational project conceived with a central idea: to allow high-level athletes to combine their higher education with training and competitions. 

 

In Rio 16, the Spanish team had more than fifty athletes linked to UCAM, winning 24 medals (15 Olympic and 9 Paralympic), being the second university in the world with more medals in the Olympic event, only behind Stanford (United States). In Tokyo 20, UCAM’s athletes won 17 medals.

The Faculty of Sport and UCAM Research Center High Performance Sports aims to achieve a leading education and research infrastructure, located in the Region of Murcia, but with the vocation of being an international reference center. The members already in place are the seed for the consolidation of a first class center with the necessary resources to establish new lines of research and promote the current ones. The Research Center currently hosts elite athletes such as Mireia Belmonte, Mariano García,Ilia Topuria, Pedro Acosta, among more than 60 sponsored Olympians and UCAM Murcia teams to help in their preparation and improve their high sporting performance.

SCS Emerging Strength and Conditioning Coach

 

*Deadline to apply is August 31st 

Criteria for the assessment of the Emerging Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year:

First


 

The most important thing is that the candidate demonstrates the activity he/she carries out. He/she must show us what he/she does. In addition, this would be very important to be able to demonstrate at the conference why we have chosen this candidate. For this, the candidate should be able to send us a document, presentation, or dossier (5 pages max) containing a justification, pictures, or videos in which this athlete performs those tasks that deserve recognition. The items of this report would be:

 

 

Activities, materials, tools, volume, periodization, level of originality…).

 

 

Second

 

 

The candidate must provide evidence of the positions/achievements achieved by his/her athletes in national or international competitions. In other words, the candidate must demonstrate that apart from training methods that deserve recognition, these produce relevant results (National level: From 1 to 10 points; Continental level: From 11 to 20 points; World level or Olympic Games: From 21 to 30 points).

 

Third

 

 

This section is intended for the less practiced/known modalities or those with fewer resources or media coverage to obtain compensation in the score. Therefore, less practiced/known sports would get a higher score. Scoring will be provided based on the following ranking: https://www.rookieroad.com/sports-by-country-0319236/.

 

All SCS coaches who want to participate should send an email with all the information to: events@scs.academy.
Only for coaches aged 30 years or less.

Winners will be presented during the Award Ceremony and will receive an award certification, free registration to the next SCS Meeting, and a free 1-year SCS Membership.

Enquiries can be sent to: research@scs.academy.
