Lori Gano-Overway, PhD has been involved in developing national coaching standards.
Lori discusses the origins, history and purpose of the national coaching standards starting with their development under AAHPERD, now SHAPE America and its progression to NCACE under the USCCE. (She also explains the alphabet soup).
The national standards are currently under revision and will be open to review until the end of October 2018. They can be found at the SHAPE America website. The revised standards are scheduled to be unveiled in April 2019 at the SHAPE America.
