Husker Power - Strength and Conditioning

"The Birthplace of Strength and Conditioning for Collegiate Athletics."


As of August 1, 2015, the NCAA requires all Division 1 strength coaches to be certified.  The strength coaches training and experience is distinct and different than the medical staff or the sport coaching staff.

Husker Power Strength and Conditioning Coaches are not only certified with a nationally accredited certification (CSCS) or (SCCC), but most are also members of the National Strength and Conditioning Association Registry (RSCC) for coaches with two or more years of strength coaching experience.
