What do I need to know?

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.

What will I learn in this course?

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.
