East Los Angeles College

East Los Angeles College is pleased to offer its online course Kinesiology Major 103 "Introduction to Coaching Athletics" in conjunction with the Human Kinetics Coach Education online course "CIF Coaching Principles." The ELAC Kinesiology Department, Kin Major 103 Introduction to Coaching Athletics, led by Professor Rick Gamboa, is a transferable elective course for the Associate of Art Transfer Degree for the Kinesiology major and also meets the requirement for the ELAC Coaching Certificate Program.

There are two components to the CIF Coaching Principles course. Coaching Principles draws content from the 20-chapter ebook Successful Coaching that challenges coaches to define their coaching philosophy, objectives, and style; enhance communication and motivational skills; become more effective teachers and trainers; and improve team, relationship, risk, and self-management skills. The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) state component addresses CIF by-laws. Both are accepted by the CIF as meeting its coaching education requirements. By completing this Kin degree course, you will have completed two of the requirements for CIF certification, a three-unit transferable Kin degree course, and one of the courses of ELAC Coaching Certificate Program. 

To purchase access to the courses, click on the CIF Coaching Principles online course graphic at the bottom of the page. The Coaching Principles/ebook and CIF testing material are sold together, so you’ll only need to make one transaction. After completing the transaction, you will receive an email containing instructions on how to access the courses. 

You will access the Successful Coaching textbook as an ebook from within the Coaching Principles online course. 

After completing the courses, you can print certificates of course completion from the website to document your achievement.
