Falcon. I'll go against the grain here... and just tell you to quit college. I for one am not in the 'must go to college' camp. Hell... i'm not even fully convinced you have to finish high-school. Its obviously not getting you far. You obviously dont believe in it, which is probably why its not getting you far. Its beating you and your family up financially. Seriously, if your heads not in it... screw it.
You also dont need a degree to become a famous S&C coach. No one will ever convince me otherwise.
Heh... that said... heres the kicker... To get good work without the usual accreditation route, you need to be GOOD. Really... all you need is to be able to PROVE that you can improve athletes, without breaking them. Sounds easy. Hell, it is easy. But there are 10000's ov people out there that can do that. You need to be better than them. Wanna get the good jobs without doing the (official) work? PROVE you can do the job better than those who did go that route. If i had a team or star athlete that needed the coaching i'd hire the best person for the job. If the top coach in the land was a grade-1 dropout from lower Elbonia then thats fine by me.
I've been turning down this kind ov work for years now, and i have no letters after my name. Word gets out when you are good at what you do. It gets out even quicker and goes further when you are out there DOING it, looking it, living it (as someone above said), and making client after client happy as hell with results. Just like trying to become world-elite at a strength sport... it wont happen quickly and it sure as hell wont happen without doing more work than EVERYONE else around you, and not just more work, but smarter work. And just like trying to become elite... if you're looking for a quicker way then it was probably never meant to be.
There. Thats the 'no college' road laid right out for you.
