Program Description

Our BSc in Sports Coaching aims to produce exceptional coaches who are competent, confident and reflective, with strong practical application of scientific knowledge and theoretical frameworks. You will have a wide range of opportunities to develop your coaching practice with an emphasis on optimal youth development.

This course will provide a wealth of opportunities for you to develop your practical coaching skills and knowledge of coaching theories that underpin the development of participants in sports and exercise settings. A large element of the taught content and assessment will be practical to allow you to apply theory to practice.  This approach will allow you to immerse yourself in the coaching process through developing knowledge of the needs of the participants, understanding how to create an engaging learning environment and developing your ability to reflect upon your coaching experiences.
