Earn the Youth Fitness Specialist Certificate

NYSHSI and ACSM partnered to create the ACSM National Youth Fitness Specialist Certificate for professionals who want to better understand the unique exercise physiology and needs of children and young athletes. 

The course draws from the text ACSM's Essentials of Youth Fitness and comprises three parts divided into a total of 16 modules, with the end goal of providing course-takers with the information they need to help youth of all ages and abilities participate in evidence-based training programs.

The online course (including an ebook of ACSM's Essentials of Youth Fitness) will launch in early 2023.
