ADVANCED SPORT COACHING B
Credit points: 15
This capstone subject focuses on coaching-specific skill and practice on the level of the individual coach. Specifically, you will further advance your knowledge of sport coaching and development by going beyond program design to consider the coach as leader and manager. You will be required to critically evaluate the context of coaching, and grapple with issues related to the immediate coaching environment (e.g., burnout, wellbeing, mental health, culture, ethics). You will be taught to synthesise previous practical and foundational knowledge to complex coaching environments and scenarios across the sport coaching pathway (i.e., participation to elite). National, state, and community sporting associations, local government, and professional sport will be explored.
