This course is designed to encourage the coach to think about the issues and facts that surround the usages of performance-enhancing supplements typically encountered by the coach in our athletically competitive world. The National Standards for Sport Coaches (NSSC) as part of the NASPE national standards calls for coaches to be knowledgeable in the area of performance-enhancing substances. The activities of this course are designed to better acquaint and refine within the coaching individual, their understandings of the current athletic environment relative to the availability, usage, and misuse of performance enhancing supplements. This will be accomplished through activities such as coaches interviews, readings, personal reflection, observations, and guided evaluation through practical experiences with current student-athletes or coaches.
