Abstract
  • This study investigated various aspects of coaching preparation at the undergraduate level to determine where coaches are being trained to enter the coaching profession as well as to determine where active coaches were trained in the competencies deemed necessary for an individual to be a success in the coaching profession. Coaching versatility for employment purposes was also surveyed. Data for the investigation was obtained by use of a criterion instrument prepared by investigator. Responses from the survey were categorized into two groups. One group was composed of responses from the institutions of higher education in Oregon and Washington. The second group was composed of responses of a selected group of coaches in the two states. This group was divided according to classification of schools by enrollment and also by sex of coaches. The information obtained from the data leads to the conclusion that there is a need for coaching preparation programs. Analysis of data indicated that only forty-four percent of the surveyed institutions offered such a program, while eighty-two percent indicated a need. Data analysis on the four concerns under investigation lead to the following conclusions. Colleges and universities offering coaching preparation programs include Speech, Anatomy, Kinesiology, Physiology of Exercise, First Aid, Athletic Training and Conditioning, Care and Prevention of Athletic Injuries, and coaching classes in football, basketball, baseball, track and field, and volleyball. Coaches felt that the following courses are essential in the programs for the preparation of coaches: First Aid and Safety, Athletic Training and Conditioning, Anatomy, Physiology of Exercise, Officiating of Sports, Kinesiology, Psychology of Sport with coaching classes in basketball, baseball, track and field, football and wrestling for men. Classes in the coaching area for women should include basketball, track and field, gymnastics, tennis and volleyball. Data analysis leads to the conclusion that there is agreement between the two groups surveyed in relation to what is presently being offered and what coaches feel is essential in coaching preparation programs. Respondents were in agreement where they obtained the competencies deemed necessary for successful coaching experience determined by the Paldanius study. Additionally, only twenty-seven percent of the competencies receiving a majority of the responses were obtained through course work. Since a need is evident from the above information, it is also a conclusion that universities and colleges should become aware of competencies that were determined as essential for successful experiences. Based on these competencies, universities and colleges need to establish at least minimum competency levels in these areas.
