Study Sports Coaching Degrees

Sports coaching is the method of instruction or training athletes or those who participate in sports. This can include professional athletes, all the way down to school and community sports. Sports coaching can help a wide range of people to develop their performance, skills and physical fitness, at the same time as maximising their potential.

Sports coaching courses tend to cover topics such as sports science, coaching science and physiology, among many others. As well as studying the scientific elements of coaching, you will likely also study modules about nutrition, psychology and pedagogy.

Your degree will probably be taught in a mixture of modes. This could include classroom based theory work, as well as practical work in the form of delivering coaching sessions. You may also be encouraged to take part in a physical education placement, which will give you the opportunity to develop your skills as a sports and fitness coach.
