KI 1170 - Positive Coaching of Youth Sports


This introductory level course presents aspects of coaching pertinent to today’s youth coach and the youth coaches of the future. Emphasis is placed on positive leadership in three critical areas; 1) character building and sportsmanship, 2) the physical, social, and emotional capacities and limitations of the specific age group, and 3) coaching principles and philosophies as well as the rules and strategies of the sport. Positive Coaching promotes the value and importance of sports and physical activities in the emotional, physical, social, and mental development of youth through participation, which is meant to develop important character traits and social skills for every child involved. This can be done only if the adults involved have proper training and information. Throughout the course, students will examine the ideas behind positive coaching, introduce coaching ideas into real‐life situations, and reflect on personal sport and coach experiences. Offered every other year. (2 Credits)
