Love Sports? It Doesn’t Have To Be Just a Hobby

There’s no shortage of people around the world who love sports. If they could, they’d spend their lives enveloped in the world of athleticism and competition. But here’s the thing, why don’t they? The sports industry is massive, and there are plenty of jobs to be filled. While you probably won’t be able to be a professional athlete in your chosen sport (unless you’re super talented, that is), you can still be a part of the sport in other ways. Below, we look at five jobs that will suit anyone with a love for all things sport.

Sitting Pitchside

You’re probably aware of how difficult it is to get tickets to one of the major sports events, let alone a ticket that is close to the action. However, among the rich and famous who can sit ringside/courtside/and so on, you’ll see other people too: the cameramen. If you’ve got an eye for a good shot and technical ability, look at becoming a sports cameraperson and get close to the action. There are also openings for photojournalists to cover these events too. You’ll be working, but oh will it be fun!

Making Athletes Strong

Forgot just watching the sports stars while they perform: how about helping them be the best they can be? If you want a hands-on role in the sport, look at becoming a sports trainer. You’ll be in charge of helping athletes on the road to recovery, offering preventative advice to keep them out of harm, and providing emergency care. You’ll be able to work in a wide range of institutions, from schools to performing arts and professional sports team. It doesn’t get much more involved than this!

Writing Your Passion

Look sport and have a talent with words? Then it’s time to start writing about your passion, offering your insight and analysis through the written word. You can do this in a number of ways: writing e-books on your favorite topics, becoming a sports journalist or having a popular blog. There have never been more ways to get your opinion out there!

Behind the Scenes

Sport isn’t something that just happens out on the pitch. There’s a whole world that exists behind the scenes, and it’s nearly as exciting as the competitive action. If you want to work in this world, look at obtaining an online master’s degree in sport administration; you’ll be able to work for sporting organisations in a wide range of roles, including general manager positions, as a marketing director, and in the media relations fields.

Into Their Minds

It’s all good and well knowing what’s expected of you and being able to do in training, but it’s a different matter entirely when it comes to competing. As such, many athletes require professional help to overcome the difficulties of performing and become the best they can be. If you have strong people skills and understand sport, looking at becoming a sports psychologist and work with the athletes on a one to one basis.
