ATHLETEALIVE2025 is a student athlete safety initiative, steered by a collaboration of the following organizations: The Coalition for the Registration of Exercise Professionals (CREP), NATA Intercollegiate Council on Sport Medicine (ICSM) and the U.S. Council for Athletes Health (USCAH).

The purpose of this initiative is to reduce the prevalence of preventable student athlete injuries and deaths, associated with conditioning and training; inclusive of proper emergency management. This initiative reflects the requirements associated with the NCAA Interassociation Recommendations Preventing Catastrophic Injury and Death in Collegiate Athletes. The goal is to reach full compliance by all collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches by January 1, 2025.

Certified Strength and Conditioning Coaches registered with the United States Registry of Exercise Professionals (USREPS) meet the foundational requirements for collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches working at NCAA institutions; view your registration here.

It is important to note that there are additional requirements to stay in compliance with the recommendations that include:

  • Keeping your strength and conditioning coach credential in good standing.
  • Completing annual education and training on athlete safety, emergency action planning and environmental safety; courses can be found here.
  • Submit the documented continued education to your USREPS certifying body (CSCCA, NCSF, NSCA).

A checklist has been created to guide Strength and Conditioning Coaches through the process: View The Checklist.

These essential requirements must be completed within your next reporting cycle to remain in compliance with required aspects of the recommendations. Strength and Conditioning Coaches, working in NCAA-affiliated institutions, should prepare to provide documentation that demonstrates compliance to their employers. The team at ATHLETEALIVE2025 will be surveying NCAA regulated athletic program administrators for compliance and reporting progress.

Additionally, we are striving to prevent student athlete death and injury at every level of play. If you are interested in supporting this initiative please contact our office at, to learn how you and your organization can help and spread awareness.
