The American Sport Education Program (ASEP) believes the question is no longer, “should coaches be trained?” but “how should coaches be trained?” Let Northern Wyoming Community College District be the answer! This certificate of completion is designed to meet the requirements for students applying for a coaching permit issued by the Wyoming Professional Teaching Standards Board. The Scientific Foundations of Athletic Coaching course uses ASEP’s curriculum and principles to introduce students to the fundamentals and philosophy of athletic coaching. Throughout this program of study, students will be exposed to many topics including, sport psychology, injury prevention and care, theory of sport, diversity in coaching, technical and tactical skills, risk management, and ethics in coaching. Whether you are interested in pursuing athletic coaching as a career or as a compliment to a degree in physical education, our courses are the right track to follow!
