You probably spent years to get where you are. You’ve done the volunteering, internships, GAships, done tons of work as an intern, moved a ton, been paid less than your worth and slowly  climbed the ladder. Now that you’re here, do not mess it up. If you want to keep the top job, win championships and secure your long term financial future, the game has changed.

You became the boss by being the best coach in the room. You’re the best at getting results with the athlete in front of you. But directors are judged on the results of their staff, their ability to work with sport coaches, and ultimately get results and win championships on the field or court. Approach being a director like you approached being a regular strength coach and you’ll be looking for jobs in the near future!

How do you learn to do a job that you've never done before, and you're the only person in the department doing it?!
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. At Strength Coach Network you can now learn from those who have gone before you, got the big checks, and won the big championships.

If you want to learn how to get rich, don’t ask the economics professor, ask the serial entrepreneur who has built and sold multiple businesses. The same is true of being a director of S&C. The huge majority of university professors are staffed by people who have never worked a day in your shoes, but not us.

At Strength Coach Network we’re for coaches, by coaches. Some of the biggest names in strength & conditioning call our site home. Our presenters make their living in world renowned sports leagues like the NFL, NBA, MLB, Premiership Rugby, The EPL, The Olympics, The UFC and more.

Our presenters are the definition of skin in the game. When they do bad work or give bad advice, they get fired. So if they tell you something works, it’s because it produces results in the real world.
We teach you to work on the system not in the system
Being on the floor 10 hours a day is a great way to get promoted. You look hard working and you get in much needed coaching reps. But in reality you’re just getting better at delivering the same programme again and again. It isn’t until you take time to step OUT of the system that you can work ON the system. To be an effective director you must work on building the kind of systems and processes that produce consistent, predictable results for every athlete.

The same is true of your career. The best directors in the business work as hard on their career development as they do on their job. They’re strategic in their professional networking and cultivating relationships. They’re tactical in how they secure interviews and convert them into job opportunities. But most importantly they’re experts at securing their financial future and claiming back time to spend with their loved ones.
We’ll teach you to do it all at
Strength Coach Network.
The 3 Step Formula for High Performing Directors
The careers of the highest paid, most successful and longest tenured directors are built on 3 key areas. Like the legs of a stool, if one of them is kicked away, your career can come tumbling down without it. While the rest are focussing on minutiae, at Strength Coach Network we’ll work holistically on your development on all 3 fronts:
CAREER & NETWORKING: leverage our resources to link up with coaches from all over the world. Our membership and presenter group spans 40+ different countries, with coaches working at every level of sport. Get advice on your resume and portfolio design, and prepare for your next job interview with the help of people who have taken the path before you.
EDUCATION: if your program is standing still, the competition is gaining ground on you. We bring in world class presenters to provide you with practical, actionable information that you can put to work in your programming right away. More importantly, we’ll help you to build the systems and processes so that your staff can produce the same high level results that you do, so you can get to work on the business of building the department.

FINANCES AND LIFESTYLE: the cliche of the exhausted, underpaid, soon to be divorced strength coach exists because it is true. Our business of coaching forum will help you to buck the trend by providing you with resources to generate side income, negotiate contracts more effectively, or simply to build efficiencies into your work to give you more time with your loved ones. A career that only produces success on the field but not in life is not a success.

Come here if you want to learn from the best
Our rule is simple: you cannot present to our membership if you are not an elite level coach who makes his or her living producing results with athletes in the real world. Career highlights for our presenters include world records, world championships, Olympic medals and League championships. If you want to learn how to do the same for your career and your athletes, you came to the right place.
It doesn't matter how good of a coach you are
Whether you care to admit it or not, as the Director, your job has changed. Elon Musk is not standing on the production line at Tesla assembling cars. He’s working to refine and realise the long term vision of the company. He is the hub through which information flows and through which decisions are made.

You need to do the same for your department. Coaching a big squat or breaking a vertical jump record is great for likes on social media, but it is not the stuff that championships or big paychecks are really made of.

You are a victim of your own success
We have a natural tendency to repeat successful behaviours. Spending hours on the floor with athletes, thinking on training in minute detail, and simply getting great results with each athlete you encounter is a recipe for promotion.

But it isn't a recipe for high pay, long tenure, or a stuffed medal cabinet. The best high performance directors in the world are indistinguishable from the typical strength coach. If you want to win like them and get paid like them, you need to start working like them.

The game has changed. It’s time to take off the assistant hate and become a true director. Every day you’re stuck in the old mentality is a day not spent building the kind of staff, systems, processes and integrated sports performance model that will win championships for years to come.

Join us today at Strength Coach Network and start building your career. Start earning your true worth. Start reclaiming your personal time.

I've been where you are now
My own career is a story in learning the hard lessons of being a director. In 2018 I was hired to be the Director of Football Performance at Towson University. A team that was only 4 years removed from the FCS National Championship game. They were also a team in a desperate need to help with changing the culture and player health.

The Athletic Director empowered me to make massive changes and allowed me to implement massive changes for the team. We moved the in-season practice time, provided food to the athletes for the first time, got Hawkin Dynamics force plate technology in the weight room, added TeamBuildr software and added GPS tracking with Catapult. We even added staff members to the S&C department and I helped fix relationships in other departments that the prior coach ruined.

Over time, as I gradually evolved from “just” a strength coach to a director we began to have our LTAD approach with the athletes. Prior to my arrival they had never paired exercises, done any COD work, nor used technology. We rolled out training programs that were based on the athletes position, training age, injury history, movement quality, etc...Our staff and the players were thriving.

Thankfully it bore fruit- we got the team back into the playoffs and reached a ranking of #5 in the country at one point. This team success was paired with individual winning conference, regional, and national player of the year awards, All-American status, and setting records for player health. However there were many missteps along the way. Nobody ever sat me down and explained to me how to be a director or how my work needed to evolve. That’s why Strength Coach Network exists today.

You can save yourself time, money and effort by leveraging the resources and contacts of Strength Coach Network to jumpstart your professional development. No more excuses about being too busy to visit a fellow coach, or waiting to attend a conference. It’s all right here waiting for you.

Pinpointing your plan for professional development
When you sign up for Strength Coach Network we’ll take you through our exclusive in-house auditing process to identify the strengths and weaknesses of you as the director and your department as a whole. From career development, to theoretical and applied knowledge, interpersonal skill, programming, research and development, and more.

We’ll then direct you to specific Strength Coach Network resources to target the weak link in the chain, and develop an individualised plan of professional development to break the process down into a timeline of manageable tasks that add up to big change over time.

Lastly the Strength Coach Network community will keep you accountable and help you see your plan through to completion, and provide support and feedback for whatever else pops up along the way.

If a meticulous approach like this is necessary to train world class athletes, why will anything less suffice for you and your career?
Let us break down the Strength Coach Network experience for you so you can see exactly all the value that is on offer:
  • Conour Houlian

    Strength & Conditioning Student, Ireland

    As a student in the final year of my S&C degree, when searching for S&C topics and questions I had regarding career development, I usually wasted a lot of time and got information from unreliable sources. Becoming a member of the SCN allowed me to be much more efficient with my time by providing me directly with quality information through presentations and discussions from practitioners who are at the top of their sport and have been there and done it.

    The primary thing that keeps me using the SCN is not just the quality of information it provides but the community feeling to it. Along with presentations and webinars, I have taken most value from things such as networking, program review threads, CV reviews, and discussion with regard to progressing in the industry. The quantity of information available on the SCN is evident from the fact that it is used by people just starting out in S&C, and also those who currently hold top roles in pro sport. It's something I will continue to use and highly recommend to others as I continue to do so.

    1st Team Strength & Conditioning Coach Burnley Football Club

    As a young strength coach, its often difficult to decipher the sheer amount of information that is available in our field. This puts great pressure on coaches like myself, as we are programmed to constantly critique and want to further our knowledge base. Speaking from experience, this leads to being swallowed up in an all-consuming knowledge storm- the more you read, the less you begin to understand.

    As a coach working in professional football, you can find yourself being unchallenged in your thoughts and practice, with other people in your department not willing to challenge you, whatever the reason. This leads to stagnation as a coach and is a place I have spent a large part of my coaching career in. I needed to break the mould and begin to once again, challenge my thoughts and practice.

    Upon joining the community, I didn't know what to expect. I immediately felt out of my depth when I saw some of the names of the coaches who are posting the various webinars and threads. This anxiety was very quickly quashed, when I realised that questions were being answered in a eloquent, articulate and concise way, whereby no question was too big or too small. Upon dropping my coach's ego, I decided to delve into some threads and engage in some conversations.

    This was arguably a turning point in my strength coach career. I had finally found a place where other strength coaches had been through my frustrations and had come through the other side with solutions. Whatever question you have, this is the place to dive in and find out. The monthly webinars are supplied by the highest quality of coach and are always fantastically informative, with each one tweaking my ever-growing performance plan. I cannot recommend the community enough.

  • Gabriel Genuso

    Birmingham City Football Club Ladies

    I remember graduating in 2017 with a 2;1 in sports science ready to enter to world of work but soon came to the realisation that jobs in sport were few and far apart and even internships required unrealistic amounts of experience. After many unsuccessful applications and disappointment I was almost ready to give up. I then saw them saw an advertisement for so I decided to give the $1 trial a go. After only one day I was exposed to more real world strength and conditioning techniques and practical science than I had during an entire 3 year degree.

    It not only changed my own training for the better but It gave me the confidence to start a masters degree in strength & conditioning which allowed me to find an internship. From that point following a vast wealth of ebooks, webinars and careers advice from a whole host of elite coaches in particular from Keir I was able to craft my own methodology which has resulted in me landing the position of lead Strength and power Coach at a top professional women's team whilst still studying my masters.

    I can't recommend the site enough to aspiring strength and conditioning coaches. If you want to get anywhere in this super competitive world you need to learn from the best and Keir is one of the best!

    Frequently Asked Questions
    • What if I find I don't have time to access the community?

      Well, no problem. If you feel you are too busy to utilise the information or support on offer, you are welcome to cancel your membership at any moment with immediate effect

      There is no minimum time commitment, but even our busiest members find that a few hours per week adds up to huge learning and development over a year.

      Learning to spend more time working ON the system rather than IN the system is just one of the major concepts we advocate for at Strength Coach Network

    • Can't I just get this information for free from the internet?

      As the old saying goes: “Results can be good, cheap or fast. You only get to pick two”. True, there is a wealth of information out there on the internet, but much of it is bullshit disseminated by people who have never coached an elite athlete in their life.

      On the rare occasions that established coaches do publish high quality information, it typically just scratches the surface of a particular topic or doesn’t provide the correct environment for detailed discussion or Q&A with the presenter.

      The best learning is reserved for those coaches who invest in themselves. We invest a lot of money in bringing top practitioners to our network, but our group structure means we are able to keep subscription fees low for our members. We are confident you won’t be able to find this amount and quality of coaching education elsewhere for cheaper.

    • What if I'm not using the information available?

      Our member on-boarding process will ensure that you’re exposed to all the site has to offer, and that you’re able to get maximum value from the information, support and interaction available.

      If you are a motivated strength coach, you’ll want to use this site. If life gets in the way however, for example a change of career or a prolonged lay off, we can cancel your membership with immediate effect, no strings attached.

    • What if I don't like the site?

      You can try the site in full for 24 hours for just $1. If you feel the site is not for you, you can cancel before becoming a regular member, no strings attached.

    • Aren't there other, cheaper sites out there?

      If you can go elsewhere and rub shoulders with elite level coaches, learn from world class practitioners, and get in depth, personalised career support from some of the best in the field for less, we want to hear about it. If you want to be a top level team sport strength coach, we're the right fit for you.
