Overview

In this unit, students are encouraged to engage with the many challenges that confront sport coaches at all levels, with a particular focus on professional and performance coaching. Because sport coaching is largely action based, students are challenged to deconstruct the lived experience of coaching. Ongoing professional development, critical thinking, and working with others are themes threaded throughout the unit. In relation to the pragmatics of coaching, this unit will help coaches to actively build their professional competence. Hence a specific focus is placed on program planning, communication skills and delivery style, management skills, ethical and legal obligations, business and financial considerations, and research and computer skills.
