Coaching Endorsement Information

 

The Iowa Department of Education has alternate programs for the coaching endorsement which was designed for licensed teachers who did not complete a Coaching Minor.

 

One alternate program must include the following:

A.     A college or university course on human growth and development of children and youth as related to physical activity (UNI course: 200:030) (3hrs) {Dynamics}

B.     A college or university course in structure and function of the human body as related to physical activity (UNI course: 420:024 (3hrs.) or 420:050 (3 hrs.)

C.     A college or university course in athletic conditioning, care and prevention of injuries an first aid as related to physical exercise. (UNI course: 420:018 (2 hrs.)

D.   A college or university course in the theory of coaching interscholastic athletics ( UNI course: 420:101-113; offered in a variety of sports.) (2-3 hrs.)

** This endorsement does not take effect until you have your teaching license.

 

If a student has all the coursework completed for the coaching endorsement at the time they graduate, UNI is able to notify the BOEE of that endorsement along with the initial licensure recommendation.  The student does not need to send transcripts and application to the BOEE or pay the $50 fee to add the endorsement.  They would only need to do this additional process if they are adding the endorsement after they have graduated and have been issued their initial license.

 

****Other alternate programs are run by local community colleges.

        It consists of taking classes at nights during the week or over the weekends. This is the best alternative for students who want to coach and get paid while going to school.

 

 

***Effective September 1, 2002, all applicants renewing a coaching authorization must submit documentation of completion of the child and dependent adult abuse training approved by the state abuse education review panel
