Coaching Minor

Be a Step Ahead with a Coaching Minor

Whether you’re a strong leader, a great teacher, or a skilled athlete, you have the ability to empower others through coaching. Minnesota hasn’t required a teaching or coaching license to coach high school athletics since 1997, so having this minor under your belt will put you a step above the rest. The coaching minor can prepare coaches for youth, elementary, high school, college, or even professional levels of athletics. It offers training and development in both practice planning and coaching strategies in your sport of interest.

AT A GLANCE...

REAL. HANDS-ON. READY.

At the U of M Crookston, you won’t spend all your time behind a desk. Our curriculum is designed around experiential learning, which means we want you to have as much hands-on learning as possible. Depending on your major, you’ll find opportunities to be in the field, the lab, the classroom, or engaging in simulated scenarios that give you a competitive edge when you enter the workforce or head to grad school. You’ll learn the concepts and then actively apply them through projects, field trips, site visits, internships, and interactions with professionals in the field.
