This course will introduce methods of skill instruction, basic teaching strategies, and pedagogy in the area of sport coaching. Students will learn how to properly organize drills, plan safe and effective practices, present age-appropriate sport skills to athletes at the youth, middle and high school levels, and evaluate motor-skill development of athletes. This course will also explore psychomotor, cognitive, and affective development and performance of athletes in school and community settings. Students in this course will have the opportunity to teach cooperatively with peers and will also be presented with opportunities to teach micro-lessons in their area of sport interest.

This course will provide an opportunity for students in the Coaching Education minor to practice teaching and skill instruction before going into practical settings.  Students will have an opportunity to observe and evaluate peers, while improving their own teaching and presentation skills.  This class will allow students to teach lessons in their specific area of sport interest, while also being introduced to sport activities taught by other students.  Under the current curriculum, many students are not given an opportunity to practice teaching and skill instruction in their area of sport interest, and there is not a course offered that allows for practical application of concepts introduced in other courses in the Coaching Minor program.  Furthermore, many of the individual sport method/theory courses previously taught by instructors in the Physical Education/Health and Exercise Studies department are no longer offered consistently due to a shortage of faculty with the interest or ability to teach these individual courses.  This new course will provide students with more streamlined instruction of the organizational and practical skills needed in any sport coaching setting, a standard course that ensures that all students are given a foundation for teaching and working with students once they move into their practicum coaching and enter the coaching profession, and it will also give them the opportunity to explore individual drills, strategy, applications, and teaching methods for the sport/athletic activities they wish to pursue during their coaching practicum.
