About the IYCA
Our task is simple...
Enhance the knowledge of youth sports/fitness professionals and volunteers throughout the world via intensive educational opportunities as well as continuing education requirements. The main purpose of the IYCA is to assist in the evolution of the youth athletic/fitness industry by regulating the knowledge and skill of the individuals who work within it.
The International Youth Conditioning Association is the premier international authority with respect to athletic development and youth participant-based conditioning. We validate research and provide appropriate examples of practical application for working with young athletes and youth participants at large.
We establish industry norms with respect to safe, effective and clinically sound means of optimally developing injury-free, emotionally sound and functionally gifted young athletes and participants.
Incorporated in 2004, our goal at the International Youth Conditioning Association (IYCA) is to unite the youth fitness and sports industry by providing a solid leadership and defining voice within the field of conditioning and developing youngsters.
The IYCA is a wonderful collaboration of professionals from the sport science, athletic, and sport medicine communities.
