The IYCA Membership & Education Program
Completion of an IYCA certification or credential demonstrates a commitment to excellence in youth conditioning and fitness. As part of the IYCA’s ongoing efforts to support and develop youth fitness professionals, individuals who successfully complete any IYCA certification or credential are automatically enrolled in the IYCA Membership & Education Program (MEP) for one year from the date of successful completion of the course (or one year from the date of purchase if the course is not successfully completed within one year). The purpose of the MEP is to ensure that all IYCA members are provided access to cutting-edge information regarding youth fitness and conditioning as well as other members-only exclusive benefits.
All members in good standing will be entitled to the following benefits:
In order to remain enrolled in the MEP, participants may utilize one of the following options:
To illustrate, Coach A purchases the Youth Fitness Specialist Level 1 course in January 2013 and completes the course on March 1, 2013. If he does nothing else, in order to maintain a current certification for 2014, he must pay $59.95 on or before January 1, 2014. Alternatively, Coach B purchases the Youth Fitness Specialist Level 1 course in January 2013 and she, too, completes the course on March 1, 2013. However, Coach B opts to purchase the Youth Fitness Specialist Level 2 course in January 2014. In this case, no $59.95 annual MEP fee will be due for the 2014 year and her membership will be automatically renewed.
Annual MEP Fee: $59.95 (waived for members who purchase any new/non-held certification above)
