If you’re interested in outdoor adventure sports, the art of coaching and the science underpinning human performance, this course offers an inspirational learning experience.
You’ll cover the theoretical, practical and scientific aspects of coaching a variety of adventure sports within different outdoor environments. Climbing, adventure racing, caving, canoeing and kayaking – all will form part of your studies.
The focus is on developing your practical, research and professional skills so that you are fully equipped for a career in an industry which offers boundless opportunities.
Fieldtrips are one of the most exhilarating features of this course. Apart from regular excursions into the Peak District, our students have found themselves mountain biking in Snowdonia, sea cliff climbing on the Gower Peninsula, caving in the Yorkshire Dales, canoeing in Scotland or wild camping in the Lake District.
There may be opportunities to head overseas too. Over the last two years, our students pushed their abilities to the limit with ice climbing in Norway, sport climbing on the Greek island of Kalymnos and kayaking in Slovenia.
