Regardless of your playing ability there are careers related to every sports that is played professionally. Every professional sports will have coaching, marketing, sales, and operations.

Keep in mind Sports is a business of selling entertainment. If you want a career in sports, there are two major fields of employment Product and Support/Services. Product - Your job is tied to the production of the athletes (coaches, scouts, trainers, etc.). Support/services - your job has no impact on the athlete performance but is necessary for the organization to operate (marketing, sales, customer/community service).

If you feel that playing professionally is not an option and you wish to work in sports. It would help you a lot if you knew if you wanted to be a part of the performance or support squads.
