Human Kinetics Coach Education is proud of our long-time affiliation with the IHSA, and we look forward to training IHSA coaches in the 2020-21 school year and beyond.

Non-faculty coaches must pass three exams before coaching, covering general coaching principles, sport first aid, and IHSA by-laws. Human Kinetics Coach Education courses that meet the Illinois coaching education requirements in these areas are:

  • Coaching Principles course or IHSA Coaching Orientation course. You may take either one of these courses to meet the IHSA requirement for general coaching principles;
  • IHSA by-laws course; and
  • Sport First Aid course. 

The IHSA by-laws course is a separate course with a separate test, but it is sold bundled with the Coaching Principles course and the IHSA Coaching Orientation course. It is not sold separately.

Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid online courses include textbooks that are available as e-books or printed texts. Either format is acceptable. 

With the e-book version, you gain immediate access to your course, the course is less expensive, nothing is shipped to you, and you avoid shipping charges. (Coaching Orientation does not include a textbook; all reading material is provided as PDFs within the course.)

Purchase ebook versions of Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid at the same time and save $20 (total price $130)! Use promo code IHSACP at checkout.

Purchase IHSA Coaching Orientation and the ebook version of Sport First Aid at the same time and save $13 (total price $100)! Use promo code IHSACO at checkout.

The print-book versions of Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid provide you with the tangible benefits of having a physical book at your fingertips. The drawbacks are that you have to wait for the book to be shipped to you and you pay for shipping.
