Working under the auspices of the United States Center for Coaching Excellence (USCCE), the NCACE accreditation signifies that the Academy’s coaching bachelor’s degree program is aligned with the National Standards for Sport Coaches (NASPE, 2006) and the NCACE Guidelines for program supervision, personnel and operations.

“With this filing, (the Academy’s) Bachelor of Sports Science in Sports Coaching demonstrates that it is a leader in quality coaching education,” a USCCE letter to the Academy states. “This program will serve as a benchmark for all other coaching education providers.”

Quality coaches have multiple fundamental roles, so the Academy’s Sports Coaching course work covers ethics, sports medicine, psychology, administrative and management functions, as well as the skills and drills, technical, tactical and strategic knowledge relevant to all coaching assignments. The Academy becomes the only institution with an NCACE accredited degree program and organizational memberships in both the USCCE and the International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE).

Academy chair of sports coaching Dr. Roch King said the NCACE accreditation shows the Academy’s commitment to leadership in sport education.

“The Academy has set an ambitious goal of being a model global provider of coaching education,” King said. “The accreditation of the B.S.S. in Sports Coaching is an important step for our degree programs. We are grateful to the accrediting team at NCACE and the leadership of USCCE for their honest analysis and recommendations. The process will make all of our programs, foreign and domestic, that much stronger.”
