Abstract

SUMMARY: PREACTIVITY WARM-UP AND STRETCHING RECOMMENDATIONS ARE WELL ESTABLISHED IN THE RESEARCH LITERATURE, BUT MANY COACHES DO NOT USE THEM. ALTHOUGH CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS EXIST TO GUIDE COACHES THROUGH THE WIDE VARIETY OF AVAILABLE KNOWLEDGE TO HELP THEM DEVELOP EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICES, QUESTIONS REMAIN AS TO WHAT EXTENT CERTIFICATION ACTUALLY IMPACTS COACHING PRACTICES.
