Adelaide, South Australia - Lumin Sports and the National Strength and Conditioning Association have extended their coaching partnership for another year.
It comes as both organisations remain resolute in their mission to provide education and tools for strength and conditioning (S&C) coaches while improving the performance of emerging and elite athletes.
Having laid strong foundations in the U.S over the previous 12-months, including a base of operations in California, Lumin Sports is doubling down on its commitment to supporting S&C coaches by supplying them with a platform that helps them make faster, more accurate decisions while saving them time spent on data analysis and administration.
Lumin Sports CEO, Ben Tripodi, said he’s excited to work alongside the NSCA and its members for another year.
‘’We’ve loved being part of the NSCA community over the last 12-months and are excited to build on our solid foundations,’’ Tripodi said.
‘’With Lumin now embedded in colleges, high performance centres, schools, youth academies, and pro-teams across the country, it’s allowed us to further refine our platform to make it even more powerful for S&C coaches at all levels.’’
‘’All the feedback from NSCA members has been invaluable and thanks to them we’ve developed more features to improve their coaching experience.’’
‘’Beyond the partnership, we’re also look forward to featuring at the Coaches Conference in Orlando and the opportunity to connect with everyone again.’’
NSCA Coaching and Sports Science Program Manager, Eric McMahon, said he’s pleased to see the partnership continue for a second year.
‘’We’ve valued having Lumin Sports onboard and appreciate their commitment to supporting the association and our members into the future,’’ McMahon said.
‘’Both organisations share a similar mission to advance strength and conditioning and we look forward to working with the Lumin Sports team again.’’
As well as featuring at the NSCA Coaches Conference in Orlando, Lumin Sports will host a round table event that is open to all members and guests.

"We are a sport and a team with such a diverse work force which is geographically dispersed. Keeping in touch with each other is critical , every day that a rider is not able to train is a day lost to the team and to the rider. Technology and the partnership with Lumin has enabled us to be more connected than ever in a meaningful and relevant way, keeping us on the road."
"Since using the Lumin Sports platform, we, as a high performance football team have been able to consolidate a-lot of our existing data storage and analysis platforms so that we can now use one central platform throughout the department. Seamless integrations with real time visuals has been at the forefront of my work and where I see the most benefit and potential from the Lumin platform from my point of view."
"Time is a valuable resource and having everything in the one place meant we got some of it back. Having performance data, communications, and critical information all in one central hub streamlined our admin processes."
"Using the Lumin platform to track player health and wellness is an easy process to help with player compliance; and a logical dashboard for coaching, medical and performance staff to visualise list availability and status at a glance. It’s been a really valuable addition to our program."
“Lumin Sports has helped our coaches and trainers overcome communication barriers with an easy-to-use, accessible, and collaborative platform. The simplicity of the mobile app has improved communication and planning efficiency. This has undoubtedly enhanced both the coaches and athlete experience, ultimately contributing to team success.”
‘"Both the NSCA and Lumin Sports share a similar mission to advance strength and conditioning. We value having Lumin Sports onboard as a coaches sponsor and appreciate their commitment to supporting the association and our members."
"Lumin Sports has provided an easy, fast, intuitive and visually enticing to collect, analyse and visualize all training load and wellness data. We are doing more as a department than ever previously in regards to our applied sport science efforts from profiling, internal and external load monitoring, subjective questionnaires and more and none of it would not be possible without Lumin Sports."
"As Head Coach, the usability and visual nature of the Lumin platform means I can quickly get a snapshot of how the players are feeling, but also how the team is tracking as a whole. The Lumin Sports Platform is now an important part of our day-to-day lives."
"Before implementing Lumin, time was our biggest pain point. As a club and performance department, we were simply not equipped with the time to monitor even simple metrics like RPE, training loads and wellness. With the Lumin Platform, our athletes can now complete simple surveys and input valuable data in seconds that give us key information that influences our players' performance on game day, it's simply a game changer!"
"Lumin, to be honest, is the best platform on the market. It's fantastically simple and easy to use, there are several AMS systems out there that are complex, hard to use and that really struggle to get athlete buy-in. That is what attracted us to Lumin Sports in the first place was how easy to use both the athlete app and coaches dashboards are. It now gives our coaches far greater detail what our athletes are doing outside of the gym which provides us so much value as an organisation."
