Human Kinetics Coach Education is proud to be a partner with the Virginia High School League (VHSL). The VHSL has adopted Human Kinetics Coach Education courses as meeting its coaching education requirements, with the various courses and options outlined below.
Option 1: Basic VHSL Course
Taking the Basic VHSL Course is the equivalent of taking both Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid (see Option 2).
Option 2: VHSL Advanced Coaches Education Course (Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid)
The “advanced” course provides a much more comprehensive learning experience than the Basic VHSL Course. VHSL Advanced Coaches Education Course includes two courses: Coaching Principles, Fifth Edition and Sport First Aid, Fifth Edition.
Required of all VHSL coaches
VHSL State Component Online Course 2E is required of all VHSL coaches and is available free of charge. If you are a new VHSL coach, you are required to take the course for certification. If you’ve taken a previous iteration of the VHSL state component course in the past, you are encouraged to take this free, updated course to receive the latest VHSL information. When shopping for courses, be sure to add this course to your cart (you won’t be charged for it).
During the purchase process, you will be asked to create an account and affiliate with an organization. Select "Virginia High School League" as your organization, return to this page, add your course(s) to your cart, and proceed through the checkout.
