Abstract

ABSTRACT: IN AUGUST 2012, A NEW NATIONAL COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION LIMIT ON THE NUMBER OF STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING (SC) COACHES WHO MAY WORK WITH FOOTBALL BOWL SUBDIVISION TEAMS WENT INTO EFFECT. THIS RULE AFFECTED SOME OF THE LARGER PROGRAMS AND SEEMS TO HAVE NOT ALTERED ALREADY UNDERSTAFFED PROGRAMS. THIS NEW RULE DOES RAISE SOME QUESTIONS REGARDING ATHLETE SUPERVISION AND SAFETY AND NEW SC COACH DEVELOPMENT. SIXTEEN SC COACHES PROVIDED THEIR OPINIONS. A DESCRIPTION OF THE SHORT-TERM AND POTENTIAL LONG-TERM IMPACTS OF THIS RULE IS DISCUSSED.
