Summer Break in Italy: Global Coaching SeminarAS Roma players at practice


Program Overview

The Drexel in Italy Global Coaching Seminar program is designed specifically for students in the MS in Sport Coaching Leadership program to provide students with a focused, hands-on experience in athlete interaction and engagement, practice planning, recruiting and sport for development. Focusing on the Italian approach to athlete development and coaching, students will travel to Rome, Italy meeting with local coaching professionals and engaging in discussion and analysis of the European approach to coaching. This intensive one week program will push students to identify new coaching methods, philosophies and approaches to sport, to understand Italy's unique sporting culture and to begin to conceptualize how American sport organizations can develop relationships with international sport organizations.

  • Have a clear understanding of the coaching culture in Italy.
