Making Coaching a Science? OSU Says Yes.

Jul 8, 2013

Oklahoma State University is offering a new minor  study in coaching science.    The new 18-hour minor program is open to students in any program who are  interested in coaching.    

The program is coordinated by Tim Baghurst, assistant professor in health and  human performance in the College of Education. Baghurst says the college  surveyed high school athletic directors, who said that a coaching science  program will help better prepare future coaches.    The minor includes coursework in athletic training, nutrition, physical  education, strength and conditioning, exercise physiology and sport management.
