Sports Employment Information

Sports Jobs Overview

Sports jobs encompass a number of related positions, including marketers, instructors, coaches and scouts. Sports marketers typically find ways to advertise a specific team and bring attention to a sport while instructors teach others how to play the game. Those with a sports background qualify to work as fitness instructors and gym teachers, but they can also work as sports agents. Coaches work directly with players, determine which plays to make and ensure that each player remains in top shape. Scouts work behind the scenes, identifying the top players at lower levels and helping them move to the upper ranks.

Sports Jobs Education Requirements

The type of background and experience that workers need depends on the job. High school and lower-level coaches usually only need some experience as a player while those working at the college level need a college degree. Professional coaches often have a college degree as well as experience playing college sports and coaching at a lower level. Sports agents, advertising experts and gym teachers also require a college degree, but fitness instructors usually go through on-the-job training or have a certificate before working in the field.

Sports Job Market

The number of coaches and scouts working in the field will grow at a faster rate than the average rate of growth reported across all industries in the United States. That growth, which is 15 percent, indicates that approximately 36,200 new coaching and scouting jobs will become available by 2020. The rate of growth found in other types of Sports jobs is nearly as high, but some fields will experience a slower growth rate.

Sports Jobs Salary

Coaches and others working in the lower sports levels, including at the high school, community college or local level, often make an hourly salary ranging from $8 to more than $20 an hour. Those working at the professional or collegiate level earn an annual salary, which starts at around $30,000 a year and rises to more than $100,000 a year. Depending on the position and job type, those working in the professional Sports field can make $150,000 or more each year.
