Program Information
The Sport Coaching minor will provide appropriate training to students interested in entering the coaching profession. Typically, students who complete this minor enter the coaching field at the youth, high school, or collegiate levels, either in paid positions or as volunteers. The Sport Coaching program’s curriculum satisfies the “initial 30-hour requirement” of the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association’s (WIAA) Coaching Standards program. Additionally, coursework is designed to meet the competencies as outlined by the National Council for Accreditation of Coaching Education (NCACE) in its “National Standards for Sport Coaches.” The content of the core coursework includes the scientific and practical competencies that athletes, administrators, parents, and the public should expect of coaches; it provides prospective coaches with the knowledge and skills necessary to become competent and effective coaches.

Students wishing to declare Sport Coaching as a minor will need to meet with the Sport Coaching Program Director and complete a CWU program application.

Students must achieve a letter grade of C or higher for each of the courses in the minor. Additionally, students will need to complete a fingerprinting process (background check) and CPR certification prior to registering for PE 495 - Field Work in Sport Coaching.
