Minor in Coaching

Pass your passion forward.

Maybe you’re an education major interested in coaching your favorite sport at the school that you teach. Maybe you simply want to get involved in your community, and coach for local parks and recreation departments, YMCAs, club teams and more.

The coaching minor at William Woods University will teach students how to juggle both coaching and administrative duties, allowing them to run safe, fun and effective sports programs. This is completed through theory coursework, as well as support classes for background in non-theory areas in which coaches must be familiar, including first aid and CPR, management of athletics, prevention and care of injuries and sports psychology.

The coaching minor can serve as a great addition to a major degree in education or physical education, sports management, biology or athletic training. It can even be useful for future business leaders, as good coaching skills can boost productivity, assist organizations with their key goals, and bolster creativity.
