Sport Development and Coaching

Want to champion sport and physical activity? One of the largest sectors of the sport and leisure industry, sport development and coaching engages people to take part in sport and physical activity. Our Sport Development and Coaching degree offers you the professional skills and knowledge required for a career encouraging and enabling people to get active. Sport isn’t just for elite athletes – it’s for everyone. Passionate, effective and inspiring sport and physical activity development professionals and community coaches are needed to get people moving, help them gain skills and confidence in their physical abilities, and build their enjoyment of sport and fitness. Our BA (Hons) Sport Development and Coaching degree is ideal if you’d like to work in this varied and rewarding sector. Expertly combining theory and practice, our dedicated team will guide you as you explore the principles, theories and methods of sport and physical activity development and coaching, as well as social, economic, and political factors affecting the industry. You’ll learn about the ways in which organisations work together to provide opportunities for sport, and different approaches used to engage and sustain physical activity among different inactive groups of the population. You’ll have opportunities to support and deliver practical coaching sessions and sports projects with community groups, gaining the skills, knowledge and confidence to organise your own coaching projects and sports events. We’ll also encourage you to gain nationally-recognised governing body coaching awards. Our ambition is to help you become a skilled ambassador for sport and active well-being, ready for a career helping disadvantaged groups enjoy physical activity benefits.
