Physical Education Athletic Coaching Emphasis

Education Degree/A.A.

Athletes aim to maximize their potential both on and off the field/court.  Athletic coaches help guide them on their paths to success.  The undergraduate Athletic Coaching Education (ACE) program primes students for a variety of roles in the coaching profession.  The program equips students to teach, motivate, and properly structure sports environments. 

ACE students graduate with key knowledge in philosophy and ethics, safety and injury prevention, physical conditioning, growth and development, teaching and communication, sport skills and tactics, organization, administration, and evaluation. 

The ACE program helps prepare students for coaching certifications.

This is based on the completion of a bachelors or higher degree.  Coaching certifications and salary ranges vary state to state.
