There are a number of professions in sports and related to it, but to excel in them one has to go though professional training and education. If looking for education and training as a sportsperson, one way to approach training is to start early and get admission in one of the Sports Authority of India (SAI) centers at the State level and then gradually move up.
The basic course for trainers and coaches is formal education in Physical Education that is also graded from the basic level and moving up to the Doctorate level. Even otherwise, a degree in Physical education comes very handy for those seeking a long career in sports and affiliated fields.
A number of government colleges also run full time courses in physical education right up to the doctorate level.
A basic structure of sports education in India may look like as under
(i) NIS Diploma
(ii) Bachelor in Physical Education (B P ED)
