Physical Activity Conditioning and Coaching (PACC) prepares students for a carreer in a variety of movement settings, other than the traditional physical education teaching career. These movement settings include club and high school athletics, in the fields of coaching, conditioning, and administration. The PACC option does not meet the standards for subject matter preparation and the PACC student would need to complete additional coursework to qualify for admission to pursue the Physical Education Teaching Credential at Sacramento State and other institutions.

Note: Due to policy changes from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing and the Federal No Child Left Behind mandate, the Physical Education Concentration periodically is reviewed and changed to meet current state and federal standards. Consult a Physical Education Concentration Advisor for details and course requirements once they are available; please see

Please see the University Catalog for the most up to date cirriculum requirements for this program.
