The HS SIG was developed as a way to provide a forum whereby individuals with common strength and conditioning interests (High School) could discuss and debate current topics, network with others in the field and share information.  The HS SIG currently has over 1000 members.  As a part of the NSCA's SIG guidelines, an Executive Council is formed to oversee the SIG as well as promote the interests of the group by recommending ways the NSCA can meet the needs of the High School coach.  The HS SIG has meetings scheduled at each National and Coaches Conference. 


The current HS SIG Executive Council consists of:

Kevin Vanderbush - Chair

Eric Reed - Vice Chair

Patrick McHenry - Outgoing Chair

Doug Bull - Member

Bruce Harbach - Member


The Executive Council has nominated Kathryn Russell and Scott Sahli to be added as members.  Anyone interested in adding their name to the nominations should contact Kevin Vanderbush ( before October 1st.  Voting will take place at the Coaches Conference or by e-mail prior to the conference, (starting October 1st). 


In addition to encouraging the NSCA to have presentations at the conferences to meet the interests of the high school coaches, the Executive Council is searching for ways to encourage all high school athletic departments to hire CSCS and RSCC to run their programs.  We are always looking for ways to bring in more high school coaches to the NSCA and to meet the needs of those that are already members.  Please feel free to use this forum or you may contact the Executive Council with any suggestions you may have.
