The Australian Strength and Conditioning Association (ASCA) is an incorporated non-profit organisation and is the peak national body for strength and conditioning (S&C) professionals in Australia. The ASCA aims to provide high-level professional support, development and research opportunities while continuing to enhance education for S&C Coaches.
The ASCA provides a variety of coaching programs for all levels of coaches – these programs are registered with the National Coaching Accreditation Scheme, which is administered by the Australian Sports Commission. These accredited programs identify individuals who possess the knowledge and skill to design, implement and review safe and effective strength and conditioning training programs for individuals and team sport athletes.
The ASCA is governed by a Board that oversees the strategic direction of the whole Association. The Board is made up of a cross-section of industry leaders, all currently employed in the S&C sector, ensuring that the ASCA is at the forefront of industry practice.
The ASCA is recognised internationally as an industry leader via affiliates across the globe and currently has thousands of accredited coaches involved in coaching athletes/teams at all levels of participation from the club through to Olympic and professional sporting levels.
We will promote, develop and service the Australian Strength and Conditioning Coaching industry and be widely recognised as the National Peak Industry Body in Australia and as an international industry leader.
The aim of the ASCA is to 'bridge the gap between sports science and practical application'.
