Athletic Trainers

Athletic trainers specialize in preventing, diagnosing, and treating muscle and bone injuries and illnesses. Many athletic trainers work in educational settings, such as colleges, universities, elementary schools, and secondary schools. Others work in hospitals, fitness centers, or physicians’ offices, or for professional sports teams. Athletic trainers need at least a bachelor’s degree. Nearly all states require athletic trainers to have a license or certification; requirements vary by state. The median annual wage for athletic trainers was $46,630 in May 2017. Employment of athletic trainers is projected to grow 23 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Demand for athletic trainers is expected to increase as people become more aware of the effects of sports-related injuries, and as the middle-aged and older population remains active.

Coaches and Scouts

Coaches teach amateur or professional athletes the skills they need to succeed at their sport. Scouts look for new players and evaluate their skills and likelihood for success at the college, amateur, or professional level. Many coaches also are involved in scouting. Coaches and scouts often work irregular hours, including evenings, weekends, and holidays. Full-time coaches usually work more than 40 hours a week for several months during the sports season. Coaches travel frequently to sporting events. Scouts may be required to travel more extensively when searching for talented athletes. Coaches and scouts typically need a bachelor’s degree. They also must have extensive knowledge of the game. Coaches typically gain this knowledge through their own experiences playing the sport at some level. Although previous playing experience may be beneficial, it is typically not required for most scouting jobs. The median annual wage for coaches and scouts was $32,270 in May 2017. Employment of coaches and scouts is projected to grow 13 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. Increasing participation in high school and college sports may boost demand for coaches and scouts.

Degree programs include science and health-related courses, such as biology, anatomy, kinesiology, and nutrition, as well as clinical work. The median annual wage for exercise physiologists was $49,090 in May 2017. Employment of exercise physiologists is projected to grow 13 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations.

They often work irregular hours, including evenings, weekends, and holidays. Officials working outdoors are exposed to all types of weather conditions. Educational requirements vary by state and local sports association. Although some states have no formal education requirements, other states require umpires, referees, and other sports officials to have a high school diploma. The median annual wage for umpires, referees, and other sports officials was $26,800 in May 2017. Employment of umpires, referees, and other sports officials is projected to grow 8 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations.
