I am pleased to announce that we are in the process of establishing the Verkhoshansky Institute of Sport (VIS), a non-profit organization to honor the memory of the late Professor Yuri Verkhoshanky (1928-2010).
The institute aims to share the work of Professor Verkhoshanky with coaches and practitioners around the world, with the intent of supporting and promoting best practice in strength training for sport.
The first initiative that the VIS has set in place pertains the development of a certification process based on the training methodology pioneers by the late Professor Verkhoshansky.
The inaugural “Specialized Strength Training Methodology” workshop will be held on March 26-27th, 2022 at Clinical Exercises Research Center, University of South California.
The course has been approved by the National Strength and Condition Association for 1.5 continuing education units (1.5 CEUs). The certification is also pending approval by the California Physical Therapy Association (CPTA).
Registrations will be available by the end of the years. More dates and locations will be confirmed soon, both in North America and Europe.
