Sports Coaching Science Certificate | eta College
The course objective is to give you the knowledge and skills to work as a sports coach and respond to the unique demands of coaching in the South African sporting context. By the end of the one-year course you will be equipped to coach beginner and intermediate sport performers – designing practice sessions that reflect an understanding of the interdependence of fitness and skill development and sensitivity to the social, emotional and physical changes that occur as players develop from childhood through youth to adulthood.
We recommend that you add additional qualifications like the Sports Coaching Science Diploma so that you can enhance your employment prospects in schools, clubs, private and government institutions nationally and internationally or run your own private practice. If you add additional specialisations to your course, you can offer your clients more options and enhance your employment prospects.
