Adopting Coach Education Materials in K-12 Education

Human Kinetics Coach Education courses offer foundational content for high school teachers to use in classes geared for students interested in pursuing a job or career in coaching. The learning materials are based on a textbook, along with supplemental content featured in an online format. In addition to reading assignments from the accompanying text, the online content features video clips, interactive exercises, audio clips, quizzes, and other activities that put the student in real-life practice and game-day situations.

Teachers who adopt one of our flagship products—Coaching Principles or Sport First Aid—get complimentary access to a suite of instructor ancillaries designed to help you deliver the course in the classroom setting.

Students who complete the course have the option to take a certification exam administered by Human Kinetics (separate from your course exam and included in their course materials). Passing that exam grants them a valuable certification that is recognized by numerous state high school associations, school districts, and sport organizations as meeting their coaching education requirements. Plus, with a signed permission form, the student has the option to be listed in the National Coaches Registry allowing future employers to verify certification.


To request access to review the materials and ancillaries for adoption, please complete the Review Copy Request Form on the main Human Kinetics website.

If you choose to adopt a Human Kinetics Coach Education product, your school or district may purchase the course materials with a print book or ebook. If print books will be reused in successive semesters, additional access codes to the online content and test may be purchased.
