Coaches help people learn how to play a sport. They start by teaching them the basics, such as proper form and technique. Education and training requirements for coaches vary greatly by the level and type of sport. Some people start by coaching young kids on recreation teams. Then they might become high school coaches. To become a professional coach, it takes many years of coaching experience and a winning record in high school or college sports. The number of jobs is expected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations between 2008 and 2018.
