Program description

Awarded by: Anglia Ruskin University

The coach is responsible for instructing, training and directing the athlete or the team. Their aim is to develop the players' skills or to achieve a specific goal. But how does the coach know which methods to use? In this innovative degree, you will explore the scientific approach to coaching. You will find out which areas of knowledge, such as human movement, pedagogy, child development, physiology and psychology, can contribute to making coaching methods more effective. This course is designed to explore the scientific basis of coaching to supplement the craft knowledge gained by a coach. These methods are explored within a specialised laboratory environment utilising the latest technology and analytical equipment in a small, friendly and supportive setting.
