The on-line courses offered by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) on the NFHSLearn.com website are not just for coaches or school administrators, although there are great offerings available for those groups.
There are even courses for parents of student-athletes and for students themselves.
The course “Positive Sport Parenting” Parenting provides information and resources to help educate parents on the importance of proper behavior by parents in school sports and the role parents must play to ensure children have a positive sport experience.
There is also a course designed specifically for captains of high school athletic teams. With the help of Michigan State University’s Institute for the Study of Youth Sports and the Michigan High School Athletic Association, this course was created to help develop high school team leaders.
Student-athletes are prominently featured via on-screen hosts and captain interviews throughout the ten-segment curriculum, while participants learn about leadership skills and reflect on and the important role of the team captain.
