Human Kinetics is pleased to announce that the American Sport Education Program website is being redesigned and renamed. The new Human Kinetics Coach Education Center will more specifically focus attention on our coaching courses, resources, and services. Streamlining the site of the more general “sport” options will make the user experience more directed and efficient.
The new site will launch Monday, January 6, 2014.
The Human Kinetics Coach Education Center will provide access to our online coaching education courses, including Coaching Principles, Sport First Aid, and Coaching Youth Sport courses, and the National Coaches Registry as a resource to verify coaches’ certifications. The site will also offer coaches and sport administrators access to our entire catalog of resources, including hundreds of books, e-books, DVDs, apps, courses, and webinars designed to assist coaches in working with their athletes and teams. Navigation will be simplified with clear labels, large tabs, and handy drop-down menus.
The other change to the website, the rebranding of the site "Human Kinetics," reflects Human Kinetics’ global reach and our expanding relations with international coaching and sport organizations. Our partnership with the International Council for Coaching Excellence (ICCE); extensive business ties developed through our offices in Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia; and the borderless communication and business technologies of today have made the country-specific label outdated.
The International tab on the new-look home page will be your link to the International Sport Coaching Framework and to the forthcoming International Sport Coaching Journal, available in January 2014. These publications offer access to the greatest expertise in coach education and development around the world.
Visit the new-look Human Kinetics Coach Education Center site after January 6. We hope the additions and improvements will make you an even more frequent visitor.
