In the 1990’s, the MIAA recognized that a number of coaches working with high school athletes had little or no training in how to provide a safe, organized learning experience for their athletes. Many new coaches had played the sport they coached but did not understand that academics and sports need to work together to provide young men and women with the skills necessary to be good citizens and future leaders. As a result, the MIAA Board of Directors selected the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Coaches’ Education Program to assist in training high school coaches.
The implementation of a professional development system has helped schools to ensure the quality of coaches by improving their knowledge and experience. With the proper education, schools can feel confident that their coaches are purposely teaching, mentoring and modeling the positive attributes of sport while also being recognized as professionals by athletes, parents and the community.
