AHSAA Coaching Education Online Package

The AHSAA Coaching Education Online Package includes the online courses Coaching Principles and Sport First Aid. With this convenient bundle of courses, you have two of the courses necessary to be certified to coach at the scholastic level in your district.

Please note: When you purchase this online course package, you will not have immediate access to your courses. Within five to seven business days of placing your order, you will receive course materials that include key codes for accessing your courses.

Coaching Principles
Our flagship course, Coaching Principles, is built upon five main concepts—the principles of coaching, behavior, teaching, physical training, and management—and features content addressing leadership and coaching, sportsmanship, coaching diverse athletes, behavior management, drugs in sport, and the "games approach" to coaching. Coaching Principles is based on Successful Coaching, written by renowned sport psychologist and Human Kinetics founder Rainer Martens, PhD. You will receive the textbook with your course materials. Coaching Principles provides the underpinnings of what it takes to be a successful coach, beyond the Xs and Os.

Through this course, coaches are challenged to:

• Define who they are as coaches (their coaching philosophy, objectives, and style);
• Enhance communication and motivational skills;
• Become more effective teachers and trainers;
• Improve team, relationship, and risk management skills

Sport First Aid
Unlike general first aid courses offered by local organizations, Sport First Aid specifically addresses conditions coaches encounter on the playing field. Newly revised and updated, this fourth edition provides students with clear guidelines on what’s expected of them as first responders, as well as action steps for the care and prevention of more than 110 athletic injuries and illnesses.

The course is based on Sport First Aid, Fourth Edition, written by Melinda Flegel, and covers protocols for conducting emergency action steps and providing life support; conducting the physical assessment; administering first aid for bleeding, tissue damage, and unstable injuries; moving an injured athlete; and returning athletes to play. Revisions reflect the latest research and best practices from the American Heart Association and the American Safety and Health Institute.

Guidelines for using cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), the Heimlich maneuver, and automated external defibrillators (AED) have been updated. The course also covers the latest information on controlling bleeding, treating concussions, and preventing and recognizing methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus infections (MRSA). Strategies for greatly reducing athletes’ risk of injury or illness are also featured.

A revised and expanded section on anabolic steroids and performance-enhancing drugs assists coaches in recognizing the effects of performance enhancers and in educating their athletes on the dangers of steroid use.

Sport First Aid is a potentially life saving resource that students can rely on to make smart decisions when encountering emergency situations with athletes.
