The Coaching Minor offers Oregon Tech students the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in coaching. The Coaching Minor features study in the basics of sports medicine, team communication and psychology, and coaching theory. It also includes an opportunity to apply that knowledge to coaching in practical ways. Students who obtain the minor will document their preparation to coach in any sport or situation. For advising or for more information contact the head of the Coaching Minor Committee, currently, Dr. Kevin Brown.
The Coaching Minor represents a credential that documents the student's academic and practical preparation to coach. For students interested in coaching, this should give them an advantage over others without documented training and experience.
Requirements of the Minor
It is strongly recommended that students interested in obtaining this minor see a Coaching Minor advisor prior to taking courses.
