For many South Africans, the only thing better than watching their favourite sport is being paid to either play that sport, or be directly involved in it. And with South Africa striving to ensure that as many people as possible have access to participate in sports and recreation activities, there are many career opportunities. After all, people involved in sport, recreation and fitness require coaches, mentors, trainers, instructors, nutritionists, agents and doctors, among other professionals. And a career in sport means you can work almost anywhere, be it in a sport club or sport federations and academies. There are also opportunities at fitness establishments such as gyms and recreation clubs.
