Assessment of the Coaching Minor curriculum will be conducted through course-embedded assessment tools such as practice activities, development of training plans, and course exams. A portfolio will be required in this minor to document knowledge of theory and techniques of coaching in the student’s sport of choice practicum. Students must attain a 2.0 GPA in the minor overall. Students must complete the practicum with a satisfactory evaluation by the practicum supervisor. Note that the practicum experiences can range from grades K – 12 to assistant coaching at the collegiate level; in a club setting such as a swimming, soccer, or basketball youth association; or at a recreational level, such as youth baseball or softball.

Note: It is the student’s responsibility to check with their school/degree unit to determine whether this minor may be officially recorded on the transcript. The various schools on the IU Campuses may limit the number of hours outside their school that will count toward a degree. Students should check with an advisor in for information about policies.
