PE 1218 Basics of Coaching

Leadership in Coaching provides coaching experience for students interested in pursuing a variety of roles in the coaching profession. A knowledge of sports or desire to coach sports is not necessary to succeed in this class. The majority of the class takes place in the field, actively leading local youth with Dominican’s non-profit after-school sports program here on campus. In addition, the course includes guest speakers such as Dominican varsity coaches and facilitators through CoachingCorps and Positive Coaching Alliance. The goal of the course is to learn methods and strategies of leading, motivating, and coaching individuals and teams. Students will then apply these principles in an actual coaching setting during the Allen Sports Club. Attendance is required one day a week, either Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, from 3-5pm each week on the same selected day.
