The Sport Coaching BSc (Hons) degree is designed to develop your key coaching skills and behaviours and to understand how our coaching styles and approaches influence our athletes. Our Sport Coaching degree will develop skills such as long-term planning, reflective practice, conducting athlete needs analysis and understanding pedagogy in different sporting environments.

For sports coaches to have a holistic approach to their athletes' development, we need to have an understanding of the physiological, technical, psychological and social factors that feed into the long term athlete development, as well as developing performance analysis skills and putting all our practical coaching skills into the real world, through the UCS network of sports organisations.

UCS has worked closely with The University of Northampton to select a suite of modules that reflects the needs of the sports coaching industry, such as Analysis, Psychology and Applied Business Practice.
