S’s Answer

A College degree helps build your thinking and analytical abilities. While not exactly a requirement for becoming a sports team Coach, it would certainly help. Coaches (incl. sports coaches) win by helping their players/teams win. And that not only needs expertise and some skill in the given activity/sport - but also being able to navigate systems/leagues, analyze abilities, provide intelligent inputs, motivate, observe development and put resources in right positions. This is where having a college degree helps.

To be a collegiate coach, yes. Some college coaching positions even require a Master's degree.

No, you do not need to go to college to be a coach. It definitely helps, however; if you want to be a high school coach you will need to at least get your Bachelors degree.



No generally you do not. Sometimes at the Middle Highschool level you are also a teacher and that would mean you may need school. Gail Griffey
