Helping people achieve their potential is one of the most satisfying parts of being a sports coach. This degree is shaped by an established model of coaching adopted by the Football Association and other leading national and international governing bodies. You will develop your key coaching skills by learning to understand your participants and their sport, and how to plan, deliver and review both short and long-term training programmes.
