Coaching Sports in Middle School
$ 20.00

Students ranging from 10 to 15 years old have a wide range of natural abilities, learned skills and physical development. As a result the goal of the course, Coaching Sports in Middle School, is to provide coach education that recognizes that middle school sports should be developmentally appropriate for young adolescents.  This course is designed for middle school coaches and administrators and was developed by the Association for Middle Level Education (AMLE) in partnership with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). Coaching Sports in Middle School is based on the book, Clearing the Hurdles: Issues and Answers in Middle School Sports by C. Kenneth McEwin and John Swaim. Coaches can complete a course immediately and will have up to one year to review and access all printable resources.
Fundamentals of Coaching and First Aid for Coaches provide coaches with content from all eight domains contained in the National Standards for Sport Coaches (NASPE 2006). These two courses form the foundation from which all elective courses and sport-specific courses are developed. Core courses should be completed first to give the coach a better understanding of elective and sport-specific courses.
