Curriculum for students entering program in 2014-15.

The Coaching Certificate program focuses on enhancing the leadership skills of not only the coach but the athlete as well.  Courses emphasize practical topics that foster successful coaching strategies at any level.  This specialization is designed for those interested in athletic coaching opportunities, while also offering professional development for existing coaches, through an exploration of current, sports-relevant topics.  Students have an opportunity to apply their interests and abilities in a variety of courses.  The curriculum is designed to develop a working knowledge of the skills needed to coach successfully and to facilitate a transfer to a four-year college or university program.   Financial aid eligibility pending approval.
