United States Sports Academy Chair of Sports Coaching Dr. Scott Johnson will travel to Thailand from 15-19 February to teach a course in Sports Coaching Methodology, in conjunction with the Sports Authority of Thailand (SAT). The course is the first in a six-part series to be hosted by the SAT for the Academy’s International Certification in Sports Coaching (ICSC) program.

For nearly four decades, the Academy has provided programs in sport education to students throughout the nation and to 60 countries across the globe. It has a long-standing relationship with the SAT, sending instructors to Thailand to teach certification courses in the sports management and sports coaching programs. The SAT is Thailand’s primary sport organization and plays a vital role in the development of sport.

Dr. Scott R. Johnson received an Ed.D. in Sport Psychology from West Virginia University. He also has two Master’s degrees: one in Athletic Coaching Education, Counseling, and Sport Behavior from WVU and one in Sport Business Management and Business Administration from the University of Central Florida. Dr. Johnson has been an Assistant Professor and Graduate Coordinator in Sport Administration and Sport Management at Ball State University and a Senior Performance Enhancement Specialist with the U.S. Army Center for Enhanced Performance at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. While there, he consulted the U.S. Army in the areas of peak sport performance and personal development.
