Course Description

This course will provide the student with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience through a coaching experience. The student is placed in an amateur sport environment and their coaching experience is communicated to the faculty sponsor via faculty-student meetings, on-site visits, and a final paper. The internship in athletic coaching is an academic course with the primary goal of joining theory from the classroom with practice from the work experience. Students are encouraged to select an internship site that reflects the level of coaching that most interests them.
