Abstract

strength and conditioning has grown significantly in the United Kingdom over the last 15 years, which is evidenced by an increased number of accredited S&C coaches (ASCC), as well as universities offering S&C degrees. More specifically, ASCC numbers have risen from ~400 in 2011 to ~850 at the end of 2018.1 Additionally, the UKSCA has recently launched a database on its website providing an overview of all undergraduate and postgraduate courses in S&C in the UK,6 detailing a total of 44 courses (22 for each category) at present. Thus, with a soaring rise in popularity for S&C in the UK, the UKSCA has continued to consider how best to represent our profession moving forward.
