About Sport Development & Coaching Sciences at Bournemouth University

This course brings together the exciting disciplines of sports development, sports management and coaching science, designed specifically for graduates wishing to face the challenges of a rapidly changing industry. It has been developed in close consultation with a number of high-profile industry bodies to ensure that when you graduate you’ll be well prepared for work in this competitive and exciting discipline.

You need a certain amount of creativity when developing sport, as well as a comprehensive understanding of the principles behind coaching science and this course will provide you with all of this and more. Links have been developed with a number of key partners for example the Club Managers Association of Europe, the RFU and Dorset FA. You will benefit from an increasing numbers of guest lectures from companies such as FIFA. Other links exist with England Athletics, Wessex Volleyball, Southampton FC, and AFC Bournemouth.

Our brand new sport performance laboratories enable you to measure the impact that changes to a training regime can have, and how you as a coach can use that information to better athletes or a team’s performance.

My placement within Guildford FC allowed me to coach a vast amount of age ranges and ability levels. I had my own under 7s team I coached and managed. This opportunity hugely impacted my career. I have networked with coaches and gained so much experience.” – Freddie Shaw, 2016
