The John Stucky award is given each year in honor of the legacy of Coach John Stucky who had a tremendous impact on the strength and conditioning profession. He was a mentor to countless individuals who aspired to become strength and conditioning coaches. Many of these individuals are prominent coaches in the field today and are the first to admit that they owe much of their success to the training they received from Coach Stucky. He was an exemplary, caring individual with impeccable character. Each year, a panel of Master Strength and Conditioning Coaches administer the practical/oral portion of the SCCC Certification Examination.These MSCCs ask the SCCC candidates questions regarding conditioning, warm-up, proper strength training technique, and other areas of program design that are important in implementing safe and effective strength and conditioning programs. This panel of MSCCs select the outstanding SCCC candidates to receive the prestigious John Stucky award, which includes a stipend and certificate of honor.
