This course will cover PRINCIPLES to help the individual coach and the leaders at the school establish and clarify the mission and purpose for their interschool sports program (providing a firm foundation), and equip them to intentionally put those values into practice with their sports teams.
As of the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year, this course is a requirement of the North American Division Office of Education (NADOE) for all employed and volunteer coaches participating in interscholastic sports associated with an Adventist school. Completion certificates should be sent to Conference Education Superintendents. This course is worth 0.5 CEUs.
You will learn the overarching values that provide a distinctively Adventist sports program in Adventist schools. This includes: Christ-centered Theological Truths (the ‘Why’) Biblically-based Philosophical Principles (the “When? Where? and “with Whom?”) Strategically relevant, efficiently effective Methodological Models (the “What?”) The value of reflective thought (and others’ insights) to review the Alignment of your values and your actions.
Quizzes killed any positive information on this course. The course is not built for coaches (volunteer or paid), there is minimal information that is relevant to actual coaching - no "How to" or "this is what I do at my school in this situation"
