Teach kids the benefits of being physically active. Instill in students the importance of teamwork and perseverance. Encourage and inspire adolescents to live healthy lifestyles. BVU’s physical education and coaching program will provide you with the knowledge, tools, and hands-on experiences needed to be an effective physical education instructor or coach who is able to address the individual needs of all students and athletes.
The physical education and coaching program incorporates engaging coursework, extensive and varied field experiences, and state-of-the-art technology and resources. As part of your studies, you will work with dedicated professors and explore many topics, including motor learning, human physiology, learning and motivation, and classroom management. You will learn innovative physical education practices and apply them through an array of field experience opportunities. You will further enhance your skills through co-curricular involvement, volunteer opportunities at area schools, and student teaching. Upon successful completion of the program, you will be licensed to teach K-8 and 5-12 physical education and to coach at all grade levels.
I’m passionate about teaching at BVU because of the university's commitment to the PE program. I also enjoy having the opportunity to work with such great students on a daily basis.
