About this course

Benefit from a program designed by elite coaches, expert academics and world leading researchers in this unique and engaging program, offering the latest and most innovative theory and practice in sports coaching.

This 24 unit coursework program is designed for current or aspiring sports coaches with a Graduate Certificate in Sports Coaching from UQ or an approved degree in the same discipline.

During the program, you'll engage in learning experiences that promote and encourage extensive analysis and critical reflection on your current coaching practices and contexts. You'll also develop expertise and knowledge in examining and enhancing both athletic and coaching performance across bio-physical (e.g. recovery, program management, rate limiters) and socio-cultural (e.g. quality coaching practices, emotional regulation, and cultures of excellence) domains.

Part of your program will be dedicated to writing a thesis on an original research topic related to sports coaching. You'll have the freedom to investigate areas of specific significance to your coaching practice.

In addition, you'll be free to focus on areas of specific significance to your previous, current or future coaching career.
