Why study this course?

This Foundation Degree has been designed to provide students with the practical skills, academic knowledge and coaching expertise that will ultimately enable them to gain employment as either basketball players or coaches, or to start a career in the wider basketball industry. The degree is based around the work of the modern basketball coach and encourages students to develop innovative modern ideas, underpinned by traditional values and practices.

The main elements of the course include a range of basketball coaching modules that cover the philosophies, styles and practices of coaching and the elements of skill acquisition, sports performance and delivery techniques. Another module focuses on the three key areas of sport science utilised in basketball coaching; physiology, psychology and biomechanics.
