Georgia Southern’s Coaching Programs Nationally Accredited

The Master in Science in Kinesiology with a concentration in coaching at Georgia Southern University has been accredited by the United States Center for Coaching Excellence (USCCE) Board of Directors and the National Committee for the Accreditation of Coaching Education (NCACE) as a Level 5 Comprehensive Accreditation. Additionally, Georgia Southern’s minor in coaching behavior was re-accredited as a Level 3 Comprehensive Accreditation.

“Georgia Southern University continues to demonstrate that it is a leader in quality coaching education by the successful completion of this impressive accomplishment, serving as a benchmark for other coaching education providers,” stated Sara Plaspohl, DrPH, CHES, interim chair for the Department of Health Sciences and Kinesiology.

The University’s coaching programs are one of only 29 accredited programs nationwide and are housed in the Waters College of Health Professions. Being granted accreditation by NCACE means Georgia Southern’s programs meet or exceed the National Standards for Sport Coaches and the NCACE Accreditation Guidelines.

The NCACE is the premier authority for coaching education in the United States, offering coaching education programming support and accreditation of programs.
