Guest post by Lizzie Weakley

If you are interested in becoming a teacher, you have many potential areas to go into. While you may think of such standard subjects as math, reading or earth science; sports education can provide a very rewarding career. Here are five reasons to consider getting into the area of sports education.

Sports Education Can Boost Overall Academic Performance

The power of sports education has been grossly underestimated. Many studies have shown the measurable effects on academic performance that sports and physical education can have. Teaching sports education is truly a way to have a significant impact on the lives of students. This important role is within everyone’s reach. You can now even obtain a master’s in athletic administration online.

Sports Education May Help Fight the Obesity Epidemic

It’s no secret that global obesity rates have been skyrocketing. The lack of physical exercise and poor food choices has taken a toll on younger generations. As a sports education teacher, you are in a prime position to influence the choices made by your students and help them to live a healthier, more productive life.

You Can Keep Yourself in Better Shape

As a sports education teacher, you will spend a lot of time not only teaching sports and exercise but also showing students how these sports and exercises are done. This means more physical activity for you throughout each day which can lead to a healthier, happier life.

Sports Education Can Help Prevent Injuries

As a sports education teacher, part of your job is teaching students about properly performing exercises and engaging in various sports. Needless to say, safety is always a top concern. Instructing your students how to properly engage in a weightlifting program, for example, may help keep them safe and free from injuries.

Sports Education is so Much More

As a sports education teacher, you are teaching many things on a much bigger level. Things that can dramatically impact the lives of your students. Part of your job is to instill the importance of teamwork, giving your best and sportsmanship. These things can help your students achieve success and happiness in all other areas of their lives.

If you are interested in education and are looking to make a significant difference in the lives of your students, sports education may be a wonderful path that will provide you with a rewarding and fun career.
