Deciding on a career path can seem like a tremendous task to begin with. After studying multiple subjects for years, you finally have an idea about what you enjoy learning and potentially a career to pursue. The next step is to look for a degree in the industry you want to head into.
In this blog, we will look in-depth at one potential career option you can have after graduating from a Sport, Sport Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy degree. There is a chance to help not only professional athletes cope with long-term injuries, but also ‘joe public’ improve their lives through sport.
For many people, sport has been an outlet in their life which has transformed it for the better. Whether you’re a fan in the stands, passionate about cheering on your team each weekend, or a casual player, there are plenty of ways in which sport can help benefit your life.
An admirable role in the sporting sector is to become a disability sports coach. In this role, you would help those less able to benefit from the wonders of sport; the best part is that not only will you get to witness the fantastic effect of sport participation, but you will also be the reason for it. Disability sports are becoming more popular and accessible thanks to the incredible people who coach them, wouldn’t it be great if you were part of the solution.
As a disability sports coach, you may travel from different schools to teach lessons; it could be blind football one week, or wheelchair basketball the next. You could move from schools to youth clubs, or even set up your own regular team. There is plenty of variety for what the job involves helping keep you excited about your career.
As sport brings joy to so many people, thousands of people each year attempt to make a career from it, if becoming a professional athlete does not work out, a popular choice is to work as part of the team who help make the athletes perform. Hollywood actor Will Ferrell is an example of this, as someone who played in the varsity teams during his high school career, he studied a sports degree in college before becoming an actor.
If working in the sporting industry is the career you dream of, then studying at the University of Bolton is a great option.
