Coaching’s key attributes are strong teaching skills, motivation to work hard and excellent communication. At SUNY Cortland, you’ll hone your ability to teach athletic skills, learn how to provide generalized fitness training and encourage athletes to excel in physical and competitive environments. Athletes and coaches motivate each other to perform at higher levels; their relationship demands commitment, awareness and dedication.
College is more than a classroom. Enhance your experience with extracurricular opportunities: Practicum experiences, research projects with faculty and participation in service learning opportunities in the community are just a few of the ways to be involved.
