Coaching program structure

The most popular study path followed by aspiring professional sports coaches is a bachelor’s degree. A BSc is studied over a minimum of three years, but most courses will encourage students to complete an additional year-long placement during their studies.

Placements are a fantastic way of putting what you’ve learned into context, gaining industry experience, and making professional connections.

If you’ve always dreamt of studying in the US, you can choose to study coaching as your major. After completing your general education classes in the first two years of study, you’ll take more classes directly related to sports coaching in the final half of your degree.

Research-based postgraduate qualifications are available for those still hungry to learn more. An MSc can be studied over one or two years, followed by a PhD which takes the average student five years to finish.

Coaching programs typically blend theoretical and practical teaching methods. As such, you’ll be expected to participate in lectures, practical sessions, seminars, hands-on laboratories, and tutorials.

Assessment methods will vary depending on the modules you select, but you’ll probably complete exams, essays, practical assessments, reports, and presentations over the course of your degree.

The content of coaching programs will largely depend on where you choose to study. However, most courses will include these core elements:

  • Fundamentals of effective coaching
  • Practical applications of coaching
  • Coaching professional practice
  • Coaching contexts and methodologies
  • Sport psychology
  • Physiology of exercise
  • Principles of human movement and skill in sport
  • Athlete and coach management
