The coaching minor is designed to provide a limited, but substantive experience in the field of coaching. The state of Florida requires a coaching endorsement, which includes nine hours (Human Injuries, Coaching Theory, and a Coaching Specialization course), for all persons certified to teach. This minor is appropriate for those students who plan to coach and/or are seeking a career in the fields of Physical Education and sport. The Coaching Minor includes coursework leading to partial fulfillment of the Athletic Coaching Endorsement. Full eligibility for the endorsement may require additional criteria outlined by the Florida Department of Education. For further information regarding the Athletic Coaching Endorsement, visit http://www.fldoe.org/edcert/. This Minor is available for students in the 2001 Catalog Year and beyond.
