About The Programs

Please note, our Coach Development Program will be temporarily paused during the months of June and July 2022.

We are pleased to offer UESCA coaches two programming options to start and/or grow their coaching practices.

One-on-One Coach Development

This program provides a coach with one-on-one access to our UESCA Coach Development Director, Faith Raymond Strafach, to develop plans and solutions to start and grow their practices.

A one-month intensive program, a coach will learn everything from what niche to focus on, marketing, operations, best practices and more – all customized to the coach and their specific goals!

Self-Study Coach Development – Coming Soon!

Using a series of online modules developed by UESCA Coach Development Director, Faith Raymond Strafach, coaches will have access to a robust platform of information that covers all areas related to starting and running a successful coaching practice.

A benefit of this program is its social learning component. Coaches within the group will have the ability to communicate with each other to ask questions and share best practices.

“The UESCA Running Coach Certification material, exam and overall process was seamless. To my surprise, just a few weeks after completing my certification, UESCA launched a Coach Development Mentorship Program and within days of beginning the program, I was on my way to starting my OWN business! With just a few items left to complete my business, I have 10 clients interested in working with me! I never thought this was something I was capable of. I am so thankful to Faith and Rick for this amazing opportunity!”

“Faith has been incredibly helpful to me as a coach, and the mentoring group has been an amazing resource, as well. As a brand new coach and business owner, the guidance and support that I have received has been invaluable. I've learned so much just by completing the UESCA coaching modules, but having the extra support of the group - and Faith, especially, has provided me with the confidence and knowledge to take my coaching business to a whole new level. I'm so glad that this program has been offered to us as a resource, and I don't know of any other certifying agency that offers anything even remotely close to what you get as a UESCA certified coach.”
