St Mary's University, Twickenham

Course Introduction

The Sports Coaching Science programme at St Mary's is driven by science topics and has three strands which provide a well rounded knowledge of the sport performance environment: ' The coaching process strand enhances practical skills and develops critical analysis of coaching practice. ' The skill acquisition strand provides an understanding of motor learning and effective training settings. ' The performance analysis strand explores objective measurement of performance to inform performance and coaching effectiveness. Students will also study sport science modules of their choice. The programme does not favour specific sports and we encourage students to relate the degree content to their sports coaching domain. Through the programme you will develop skills relevant to other careers in sport related fields, as well as those valued by all graduate employers.
