As a sports fan nothing beats watching your team win from the sidelines, unless of course you are a professional coach who has spent their career nurturing those athletes for success.
Designed in consultation with Sport Singapore, the Diploma in Sports Coaching (DSC) will drill you in the art and science of coaching. Learn the basics of sports science, psychology, and nutrition while picking up soft skills in communication, athlete and team management, and professional ethics. You will also get a 30-hour mentorship with a senior coach who will share various coaching styles, philosophies, methods, and strategies.

DSC graduates possess transferable skills and knowledge that may be applied to domains such as sporting institutions, schools, gyms, and recreational clubs. Some rewarding and fulfilling career options you can look forward to include:
