Take the Principles of Coaching Course!
"I recently finished the Principles of Coaching for Special Olympics course. I have been coaching Special Olympics for almost 5 years, and was surprised to find out how much I could still learn. There was a lot of great information to read through, and then review while taking the quizzes. But my favorite part was that this course made me think. A large part of the written work I did made me analyze my own experience, and think about how I could improve. I want to thank my instructor, Sandy, and WVU for all of their hard work in putting this course together. Just like I do with my Special Olympics athletes, they made me work but it sure was a lot of fun. I would recommend this to any coach that wants to improve their skills and make everything we do, help our athletes want to keep coming back for more.” – Ed Speas, Coach, Forsyth County, SO Georgia
