Minor in Athletic Coaching
This minor is designed to prepare students for certain coaching responsibilities in schools and recreational programs. The curriculum includes an introduction to the organization and administration of athletics as well as practical work in assisting coaches in selected sports. Attention is also given to the prevention and care of the most common injuries occurring in athletic programs. The minor helps to prepare students to begin a career in coaching with a solid base of philosophy, sports specific knowledge, and practical experiences. Students have the opportunity to learn first-hand from seasoned coaches and then move on to apply their knowledge through field experiences and internships with local programs. Students may take courses as electives or as part of the certificate program. For more information about this minor, please contact the Athletic Department at (207) 780-5997.
Upon completion of the 18 credit minor a certificate will be presented to students. In addition, a notation will be made on the student's transcript indicating proficiency in the area of athletic coaching as determined by the minor.
