The minor in Athletic Coaching is for the student with a passion for motivating the next generation of athletes.
Athletic coaches have the power to inspire and motivate athletes on and off the field. Today, coaches are needed in schools, recreation centers and camps, helping children, teens and adults learn new physical and social skills, improve their physical condition, and experience success in their sport. By modeling and developing good sportsmanship, a competitive spirit, and teamwork, a coach often becomes one of the most influential leaders in a person’s life.
At Olivet, students learn the nuts and bolts of administration, basic knowledge of athletic training, and the essentials of proper weight training. In addition to that, students will develop knowledge of biology, chemistry, physiology and nutrition.
In addition to internships, students have the opportunity to take on leadership roles on campus, through clubs, activities, intramural sports and student government.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) brings coaches and athletes together to impact the world for Jesus Christ. Olivet’s local chapter is part of the largest Christian sports organization in America. Support, encouragement and service to fellow students form the name of this game.
