Overview

Bachelor of Sport and Recreation - Coaching

AUT's coaching degree prepares you for a coaching career in sport, recreation, health and physical education, and the growing area of coach development.

Coaching is an exciting and rewarding area of sport in New Zealand. Coaches work with athletes of all skill levels, from beginners to high-performance athletes, and there’s a large number of coaching positions available in the areas of performance analysis and performance sports. 

Develop the skills to become a top coach. You gain a sound understanding of the coaching process, and work with athletes of different skill levels through your workplace experience

There’s strong input from the university industry partners, including Aktive Auckland Sport and Recreation, national and regional sport organisations and clubs; primary, intermediate and secondary schools, and regional sports trusts.

Workplace experience

In your third year you complete 350 to 400 hours in an organisation, which includes working on a project related to your major through the Cooperative Education courses. This takes approximately two days per week.
