Whether you’re planning to enter primary or secondary education (pre-MAE) and want to expand your professional credentials or you’re interested in coaching community youth sports programs, such Little League or club teams, you can pursue a minor in coaching at Truman.
Preparing for Lives That Matter
You want to be a knowledgeable and proactive professional. With a broad education like the one you will discover at Truman, you can easily turn your intellectual pursuits into surprising connections that allow you to make a real difference in your work, your community, and your life. When you pursue a minor in coaching, you add breadth and depth to your academic experience.
Broaden the Reach of Your Knowledge
Learn about the principles, scientific foundations and techniques of coaching. Develop the knowledge base necessary to provide appropriate and safe coaching instruction to young athletes—knowledge and skills you can use throughout your life.
Our coaching minor is aligned with standards issued by the National Association for Sports and Physical Education (NASPE). While the courses in the coaching minor are restricted to exercise science and athletic training majors, any Truman student interested in learning about coaching can apply for an override for the classes.
