No matter what sport you coach, Human Kinetics’ books, ebooks, and DVDs will help you to improve your coaching fundamentals; understand the strategies and tactics of coaching your sport; develop season and practice plans; manage your team, individual players, and parents; and keep it all fun.
Successful Coaching covers general coaching principles that all coaches need to know, and Sport First Aid details what’s expected of coaches when athletes suffer an injury or illness. We offer sport-specific coaching resources for major sports, including baseball, basketball, football, soccer, softball, tennis, track and field, volleyball, and wrestling, as well as for lacrosse, hockey, golf, and swimming. Many were produced in conjunction with coaches from the Olympic, professional, and collegiate ranks representing sport organizations such as the American Football Coaches Association and American Baseball Coaches Association. We also have books devoted to teaching technical and tactical skills and drills, coaching youth sports, and being a successful coach.
If you are a youth coach affiliated with Babe Ruth League/Cal Ripken Baseball, PONY Baseball, or American Youth Football and Cheer, Human Kinetics Coach Education offers online courses for meeting coach certification requirements.
