The Coaching Certificate Program will offer courses that are authorized by the New York State Education Department to meet requirements for coaching certification. In order to help provide a safe environment and successful experience for boys and girls who participate on interschool athletic teams, the State of New York has recommended a certain minimum of requirements in order for a person to be appointed as a coach of an interschool athletic team. This includes all head coaches and assistants for varsity, junior varsity, freshman and junior high (modified) teams of public schools.
In addition to completion of the courses listed below, New Your State Coaching certification requires completion of mandatory professional workshops. Please refer to the New York State Education Department website www.p12.nysed.gov/ciai/pe/toolkitdocs/coachingguidelines_07_09.pdf for additional state coaching certification requirements.
Note: Students enrolled in this program are not eligible to receive financial aid.
