Sports Coaching 100 Hours Certificate Course

Sports Coaching Course Online: Acquire the knowledge and skills needed to become a sports coach with this excellent distance learning course.

The World loves sport. The World Cup, European Champions League and Premier League attract millions of football fans worldwide. Wimbledon held in June of each year, excites tennis fans as they watch the best professional players duel it out on centre court. And what cricket enthusiast can resist the Ashes series between England and Australia? That's just three of the many competitive sports that are played and watched around the world. Others include Rugby, American Football, Athletics and Gymnastics, to name just a few.

In addition to the elite professional sportsmen and women gracing our TV screens, adults and children participate in sports activities at grass roots level as amateurs. Parents get up early at weekends, to take their sons and daughters to play for a local Sunday League football team. Others get in a game of tennis before breakfast.
