The College’s largest minor, coaching, prepares students to meet the Ohio standards for the Pupil Activity Supervisor permit, which is required for coaching in public schools. This certification makes aspiring teachers even more appealing to employers and is a key component for aspiring athletic directors.
Possessing a coaching minor also gives you opportunities to teach and lead in sports outside the school environment. Coaching positions are expected to increase by as much as 14% in the coming years.
Courses and experiences address objectives set forth by the National Assn. for Sport & Physical Education, which addresses codes of conduct for coaches, as well as teaching applicable skills. We emphasize an introspective look at why you want to coach and will help you develop personal philosophies ranging from parental involvement to the recreational vs. competitive models in sports.
