The Sports Coaching and Performance degree provides the opportunity for students that have completed a Foundation Degree, preferably in Sports Coaching, to progress onto the final year of a BSc Sports Coaching and Performance degree.
A distinct part of the sports coaching course is the opportunity to gain invaluable coaching experience. You'll cover key theoretical issues that support the coaching process, including talent identification, athlete development and player development models.
