Thiel's coaching minor program fulfills a significant need for qualified coaches for all sports programs and administration of such programs.
The Institute for the Study of Youth Sports estimates that 40 million youth participate in sports annually. Over 4 million adults serve as volunteer coaches. It is not unusual for schools, community agencies, and religious groups to seek competent persons to coach their children. All of these same organizations desire assistance with administration of their sport programs. High school administrators, in particular, put a very high priority on the hiring of teachers that are also qualified coaches. The need is great for qualified coaching personnel. This issue is at the forefront for parents of children and the administrators in the community, youth, high school, and even the collegiate level of sports.
Thiel is providing a tremendous resource of quality people to aid in filling this need in terms of leadership and knowledge that is needed relative to coaching.
