ATH 904 – Coaching: General Principles

This course is designed to encourage the coach to think about the various elements of successful coaching beyond simply the skill requirements of their respective sport.  In addition, the coaching profession requires the coach to function effectively as an administrator, leader, and psychologist.  The ability to successfully organize, lead, motivate, relate, and evaluate is foundational to the coach within the profession.  The activities of this course are designed to better acquaint and refine those skills beyond simply the teaching and knowledge of sport fundamentals.  Most people who go into coaching have a solid foundation for the physical skills required for their particular sport.  Successful coaching involves much more than this.  The purpose of this course is to assist the coach in their professional development relative to the overall requirements necessary for the coaching profession.
