The Sport Coaching major is made up of eight units that focus on the development of students coaching knowledge and skills enabling them to work at all levels of sport participation from community, school, state, national, international and professional sport settings. Students will develop a sophisticated understanding of coaching practice through studies ranging from community-based coaching to advanced units that focus on talent identification and athlete/coach development. By completing this major, students will have both a deep understanding of coaching theory and a range of practical coaching skills highly sought after in the sport workforce in roles such as sport coach and sport development officer/manager.
