Projects & Initiatives

CACSS focuses on projects designed to improve the work of those who coach, train coaches and conduct and support research related to coaching and coach development. The Center highlights projects that promote multiple aspects of applied coaching science simultaneously.

Mon Play Project

The CACSS research team is working to develop a comprehensive list of youth sport activities in Monongalia County that will allow families to explore and understand the wide range of options in recreational and youth competitive sport opportunities in and around Morgantown, WV. As the project grows, the database of area programs will also include key information about inclusion policies, coaching standards and program alignment with the standards for youth sport development.

National Coaching Report

In a combined effort with the United States Center for Coaching Excellence (hyperlink this), the CACSS is developing a United States National Coaching Report. The inaugural report is set to be released in June 2019 at the North American Coach Development Summit. This report is designed to serve as the foundation of a long term project that will provide an overview of the complex landscape of sport leadership organizations that play a role in coaching education, development and support across sports contexts from youth through the Olympic and professional level.
