COED 6160 - Performance and Conditioning for Athletic Coaches


This course explores the physiological concepts of the human body and their relationships with improving sports performance. The course specifically focuses on the analysis of the physiological demands of various sports and students examine how individual athletes physiologically adapt to different training stimuli depending on their gender, age, and other environmental factors.

Requisites:
Credit Hours: 3
Repeat/Retake Information: May not be retaken.
Lecture/Lab Hours: 3.0 lecture
Grades: Eligible Grades: A-F,PR,WP,WF,WN,FN,AU,I
Learning Outcomes:
  • Students will be able to describe the structure, function, and neural control of exercising muscles and the adaptations that occur with performance conditioning.
  • Students will be able to explain the role of bioenergetics, muscle metabolism, and hormonal regulation during sport performance.
  • Students will be able to discuss the role of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems in sports performance and adaptations that occur via aerobic and anaerobic training.
  • Students will be able to compare how individuals physiologically adapt to different training stimuli depending on their gender, age, and environmental factors.
  • Students will be able to critically assess the physiological demands of different sports.
  • Students will be able to apply the principles of performance conditioning in the design of coaching programs.
