The Coaching and Youth Sport Development department is part of sport and recreation at AUT.
Our coaching and youth development programmes are designed to enhance students’ applied knowledge of sport coaching, coach education/development, skill acquisition, sport psychology and performance analysis, with a strong focus on youth.
Undergraduate study in coaching and youth sport development will give you a solid grounding in this area.
