In a continuous effort to promote educational advancements in the fields of health and exercise science, Carroll University will be hosting the upcoming National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Wisconsin state clinic on April 13, 2019. It will be Carroll’s eighth consecutive time hosting the event.
The NSCA state clinic offers a vast array of topics, making the conference applicable to more than just the strength and conditioning field. Past presentations covered subjects pertaining to youth and collegiate athletics, athlete training and development, nutrition, sports medicine and other related areas of study.
These subjects are presented in tandem with the NSCA’s goal of bridging the gap between science and application. Lectures aim to both discuss new information and practices while also focusing on the application of these lessons outside the clinic, creating more value for the approximately 200 participants that attend each year.
While the NSCA clinic may be a great place for long-time practitioners to share their knowledge, students also have the opportunity to present their own research and meet with like-minded professionals during the clinic. Furthermore, past student attendees have praised the organization’s commitment to applicability as well as the clinic’s efforts to reaffirm the information taught in current Carroll courses.
“The clinic provides a great atmosphere for students to network and learn about the strength and conditioning profession from some of the top practitioners in the field,” said Dr. Tim Suchomel, assistant professor of exercise science, the clinic’s state director and member of the NSCA’s Great Lakes Regional advisory board. “Moreover, the NSCA Wisconsin state clinic provides researchers and practitioners an opportunity to share and discuss their current projects that will help advance the strength and conditioning field.”
Additional benefits to participating students and attendees include a low-cost registration fee, a pre- and post-clinic get-together, a free t-shirt and other giveaways.
