BSE313 Sport Coaching directs students to examine the theoretical basis and the practice of sport coaching, highlighting the philosophical, social, psychological, pedagogical aspects and the application of sport science that underpin effective coaching. Students will gain the knowledge to understand and manage the complex interplay between coach, athlete, coaching programme and its social context. Students will also explore the different coaching approaches, models, principles and strategies suitable for working with individual, team athletes and specific populations (e.g., children, adults, people with disability). In addition, this course allows the students to further develop their skills in designing effective coaching programmes to enhance athletic performance.
