Sport Coaching Minor
Coaches have an exceptional opportunity to exert a strong positive influence on players and to that end the minor adheres to the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) coaching standards that emphasize ethics, safety, team play and leadership. Courses also address the need for coaches to produce the safest environment for players and others and to avoid litigation by adhering to the objectives of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). New enrollments in the Sports Coaching Minor are no longer accepted, effective Fall 2017.
