Coaching Minor

This minor is designed to prepare students to coach one or two specific sports. A required fieldwork experience offers students the opportunity to work directly with a coach and a team.

These courses offer students a background in coaching sports.  These courses fulfill the requirements for a minor but the minor does not certify you to coach.  Coaching certification requirements are established by each state.  Students should note that each state varies in its requirements for coaching certification. Each state will determine which courses count toward certification.  Students are responsible for identifying the coaching requirements in their respective state and submitting required documentation for certification.
