Course Description

In this self-paced course, students will learn the importance of building a solid foundational groundwork based on culture, core values and relationships. Within this culture, students will create a plan that will give the program a clear direction. Students will also learn to implement offensive, defensive and special teams systems that fit the personnel on a yearly basis within a systematic approach. To support this systematic approach, students will learn to set up an individual program with individual roles within the program with clear expectations for all involved. Also, students will learn to create a focused in and out of season plan for success based on the weekly opponent and the identified individual player improvement needs.
This is a self-paced course, but you should be turning work in as you go. You are required to schedule two virtual meetings with your instructor – one at mid-term, one at the end of course. ALL ASSIGNMENTS ARE TO BE TURNED IN BY APRIL 2. YOU THEN HAVE 2 WEEKS TO VIRTUALLY MEET WITH YOUR INSTRUCTOR BEFORE THE COURSE ENDS ON APRIL 16.

If it is necessary to withdraw from this course before the start date, a $50 non-refundable processing fee will be assessed. No refunds will be given after the start date.
