Minor in Coaching

18 semester hours

Those students who successfully complete the program at West Chester earn transcript and written endorsement from the College of Health Sciences attesting to school administrators that recipients have attained basic preparation for coaching. Behavioral competencies in the theoretical foundations of coaching, skill acquisition, and management techniques also are required. Course offerings at the undergraduate and graduate levels are available.

The Athletic Coaching Minor is open to any student who applied for admission through the program advisor, Dr. John Helion. Applicants should direct inquiries to that office for a coaching minor brochure. Course work is divided into 6 groupings in order to meet NASPE coaching guidelines. Non-Kinesiology majors may be required to take appropriate pre-requisite courses for some of the minor classes – please see the non-major advising sheet below.
