The minor provides students with the foundational skills required to coach safely and effectively at the community, domestic and representative levels. Students will develop an individual coaching philosophy and style, use relevant technology, practice coaching in controlled settings (e.g., Learning in the workplace), develop program planning skills, and how to deliver applied exercise prescription programs. This minor is planned to provide students with a balance between the theory of coaching science and practical application of key concepts.
