Coaching is offered as a minor within the Kinesiology and Physical Education Department.

Come to a deeper understanding of the human body, while learning how to help others share your enjoyment of sports and play. Human movement, play, games, sports and athletics are seen as God’s gifts for His people that are to be developed and enjoyed. Coaches play a unique role in an athlete’s enjoyment and development of sport ability. With an introduction to the foundations and principles of coaching sport and physical activities, a minor in coaching will focus you in on topics such as coaching philosophy, principles of communication and motivation, teaching, physical training and management in athletic coaching.

" Throughout my education, and to this day, kinesiology has made me marvel at God’s creation. From my first day, seeing the doctor patient relationship and the positive changes in patients, I knew this was for me. I spend quality time with my patients, often while they are struggling with something physical but even mental as well. It has been a real blessing to provide empathetic and personal care to those who need it. I had always envisioned having a wellness-based practice that focused on integrating movement into daily life, rather than just passively healing acute injuries. I was offered to take over a wonderful space that functioned as a yoga studio. It was an opportunity I couldn’t say no to. Rewarding moments happen all the time—like a mom being able to put her baby in the crib without back pain. At the same time, it can feel like I am the one factor that determines my business’s success. It’s challenging to remember that God is in charge, and not me. But, through the ups and downs, I am excited to see how God will use my place and position in Bradford to further His Kingdom. See Irma’s full story on Resound. Or, watch the video below: "
