Course Details

Coaching Adapted Sports

Interscholastic students with physical disabilities have specific needs, which could prevent them from enjoying the positive experiences available to other students who participate in athletics and team sports. That's why the National Federation of State High School Associations, in partnership with the American Association of Adapted Sports Programs, is proud to bring you Coaching Adapted Sports.

In this course, you will learn how to create adapted sports teams at your school or in your school district. You'll hear from others who coach and participate in adapted sports, and you'll find specific and helpful information about the kinds of sports, skills and drills available for coaching students with physical disabilities.

NFHS Core Courses

Fundamentals of Coaching and First Aid, Health and Safety for Coaches provide coaches with content from all eight domains contained in the National Standards for Sport Coaches (NASPE 2006). These two courses form the foundation from which all elective courses and sport-specific courses are developed. Core courses should be completed first to give the coach a better understanding of elective and sport-specific courses.
