The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) is continuing its commitment to coaches education with a revision to the flagship “Fundamentals of Coaching (FOC)” course through the NFHS Learning Center at

The NFHS “Fundamentals of Coaching” course provides a unique student-centered curriculum for interscholastic teacher/coaches, assisting them in creating a healthy and age-appropriate athletic experience that supports the educational mission of our nation’s schools.

With a revised look and new content, the FOC course includes additional facts on concussions that dispel the “play through pain” attitude, as well as information on the importance of sleep, social media, the value of stretching, practice methods, and appearance- and performance-enhancing substances. The revision also includes a new teachable moment video featuring concussion return-to-play protocol.

The NFHS is also expanding its services of online education courses to officials, students, administrators, parents and music adjudicators in an effort to reach all groups involved with education-based activity programs.
