Coaching Minor

The coaching minor prepares students who want to coach youth sports, junior or senior high school sports, or in recreational sports settings by providing additional knowledge in the areas of teaching sport skills, sport psychology and organizing athletic programs. This minor is an excellent addition for students majoring in education or students majoring in other fields who would like to work with youth sports beyond their professional field.
