This minor prepares you for entry level athletics coaching at the youth, recreational or interscholastic level. It is a good fit for education majors interested in coaching, students who are interested in coaching part-time or as a special interest, or student-athletes who may be interested in pursuing their passion further in coaching.
Through this minor, you will learn best practices in coaching techniques, understand developmentally appropriate practices in teaching youth sports and the relationship of sport in our society, improve your proficiency in the execution of sports fundamentals, and understand the dynamics of inclusion in sports programs.
Make Yourself Marketable
I decided to minor in Athletics Coaching because sports have always played a huge role in my life. As an education major, coaching will benefit my career because I will be working with students and would be able to help them on the field or court and in the classroom.— Tyler Turek '22
