Why Teach Sports in Secondary School?

Thinking of becoming a sports coach or teacher? Here’s why teaching sports at secondary level is a great career move, and hugely beneficial to school students!

Learning to teach in secondary school is a noble career choice, and specialising in physical education is extremely rewarding. This is because teaching sports goes far beyond fitness benefits, and can be a contributing factor that shapes teenagers for the rest of their life.

Here are just some of the reasons why secondary school sports is so important: 

1. Promote inclusivity and diversity

Playing sports can be a good way to bring people of all backgrounds and abilities together, improving inclusivity across the school system. By helping create connections that perhaps wouldn’t exist otherwise, you’ll be doing your part in making the world a friendlier place.

There’s a sport or activity for every child too, ranging from contact to non-contact, as well as team or solo. For sports teachers, helping students realise their personal strengths and growth potential is something that can bring huge job satisfaction.
