Course summary

- Sports Coaching achieved 100% overall satisfaction as rated by final-year undergraduate students in the 2018 National Student Survey- Make the most of excellent sports facilities, including a sport and exercise psychology laboratory and technologies for sports analysis- Enrich your university experience with a wide range of extracurricular opportunities, from traditional Sports Coach UK workshops to cutting-edge performance and professional courses- Receive first aid and safeguarding training, as well as Disclosure and Barring Service clearance prior to your placement, as part of the course- Learn to reflect in an analytical way on your practical experience of coachingSports coaches used to pick up their skills simply by playing, then passing on their experience. But that’s no longer enough in a world where coaches in tennis, football and cricket have public profiles as high as the players themselves. We now expect coaches to have studied and mastered the art and science of coaching. That’s why on our Sports Coaching course you learn a more ‘professional’ approach by reflecting in an academic way on your practical experiences of coaching practice.From the minute you leave our three-year programme’s ‘starting blocks’ you won’t be short of inspiration. Our lecturers are great motivators of students and the facilities available to you are first-class, including our own stadium complete with an eight-lane athletics track, a large sports hall on-campus and laboratories kitted out with the latest high-tech analysis equipment. The Foundation Year (first year of study) gives you the chance to commence your studies with us if you have not quite achieved the degree qualifications required or if you feel you would benefit from the opportunity to develop your study skills and subject knowledge prior to embarking on your degree. Through a range of engaging, small-group lessons and practical placements, you will be equipped with the academic, professional and personal skills to help you succeed at university. Modules will cover broad topics as well as an introduction to your chosen subject area. You will also have the opportunity to study alongside students undertaking a range of degree programmes.Central to the Sports Coaching course at Winchester is the belief that theory and knowledge are best learned through practice. Four strands cover both the practical and academic elements.The first strand is Sports Coaching Practice, which teaches you to put theoretical coaching principles into practice to help sports people strive to improve performance. Part of being a successful coach is having good communication skills and we study the best ways to convey your message. In this practical first strand, you may also explore coaching consultancy work in the local sporting community to enhance your employment prospects.The Supporting Coaching Practice strand helps you to understand both scientific and sociological coaching principles. You focus on how inequality affects both coaching and sports participation and how sport is used to develop local communities. You take a deeper look at training methodology and the use of technology, such as video match analysis. You also focus on educational theory and how it can help structure coaching classes. Finally, you explore coaching special populations, with the primary focus on disability sport.The Sports Coaching Science strand applies sports science to sports coaching. Covering aspects of biomechanics, physiology and psychology provides you with a science toolkit for coaching.Finally, in the Research Methods strand you develop the academic ability to apply both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies to various sporting and exercise contexts. The acquisition of such skills underpins your learnin
