Call for Authors

USCCE and Rowman & Littlefield call for Authors for the book series Professional Development in Sport Coaching

This book series aims to provide sport organization leaders, directors of coaching, educators, coaches, and athletic directors with the skills, guidelines, and research-based best practices to support quality professional coach development across multiple sport contexts.  Examples of a book(s) in this series might be “Creating quality lesson plans”, “Evaluating athlete readiness”, “Supporting physical literacy through youth sport coaching” or “Best practices in effective record-keeping for coaches”.  The possibilities are limited only by your creativity and expertise.

Interested authors are encouraged to submit proposals for 6″ x 9″ paperback book format of approximately 200 pages (75,000 words)  designed to provide practical information for athletic directors, sport program directors, youth sport organization leaders, and directors of coaching working with volunteer and professional sport coaches.
