So physical education profession provide lot of opportunity to the students but the awareness is required. INTRODUCTION Physical education has been one of the constituent parts of the education system in India. In fact, India has an ancient tradition of physical education and sports (such as kho-kho and kabbadi), to ensure physical development of a person. Physical education mainly focuses on the development of physical and mental fitness, development of neuromuscular skills, and development of character and personality. Prior to the late 1960s, physical education professional preparation programs in the United States were principally concerned with preparing coaches of sport and teachers of physical education. In recent decades, the field has spawned a number of viable alternative career tracks. Beginning in 1966 with but a single master's program established at Ohio University, the field has expanded to 193 institutions that prepare sport managers and administrators on the undergraduate and/or graduate levels (NASSM/NASPE, 1993). The narrow sense of the sport, known as "Little Sport." It is an integral part of education is through physical activity and other auxiliary means of a purposeful, planned, organized educational process. By 408

2 profession we are not only a physical instructor. Out of this we are human engineer or human architect. Physical education teachers are usually employed to teach children from the kindergarten level through high school. Physical education teachers are responsible for promoting physical activity and well-being through a variety of physical activities and sports. Physical education teachers may also serve as coaches for schools' sports teams or serve as health teachers in addition to their physical education duties. They must be physically fit, as most of their typical days are spent on one's feet, and an overall knowledge of sporting and physical activity equipment is necessary. Physical education teachers must develop lesson plans and prepare props and equipment just as any other teacher would. They must assure that their lesson plans are appropriate and effective for all students. Sport management involves any combination of skills related to planning, organizing, directing, controlling, budgeting, leading, and evaluating within the context of an organization or department whose primary product or service is related to sport or physical activity (DeSensi, Kelley, Blanton and Beitel, 20003). Sport managers carry out these skills in a variety of organizational settings (for example): college sports; professional sports; amateur sports (Olympics); sport marketing and management firms; sport communications and news media firms; corporate sponsorship and advertising firms; sporting goods firms; arenas, stadium, and civic centers; community recreation sports programs; social service agency sports programs (YMCA, YWCA, JCC); private club sports programs; and military sports programs. According to Park house (2005), the most recent research on the economic impact of sport identifies it as a $213 billion-a-year industry, making it the sixth largest industry in the United States ( The answer is, Sports Business Journal, p.23, December 1999). The wide range of organizational settings where sports occur means that individuals can select and pursue careers in the kind of work environment of their choice and for which they are best suited (public/private organization; profit/non-profit organization; professional/amateur sports; There are also numerous career paths available in sports administration through which you can explore your sporting abilities and inspire other people and drive them to new heights of excellence and success in sports. If one wants to excel in the profession of sports administration, he/she should possess a natural passion for sports, along with a clear view on how to manage sporting events. As a sports administrator, one can expect working 409

3 opportunities in a variety of settings, including schools, colleges, universities, stadiums, offices and organizational programs like sporting events. Given current American health trends, a physical education and health degree provides graduates with the opportunity to help a sedentary generation plagued with increasing obesity. Although academic demands once devalued physical education and health studies, statistics are inciting parents and teachers of the current generation of children and adolescents to encourage a more active, healthy lifestyle Courses offered by different Institutes: Courses in the field of physical education are offered at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

There are many lucrative and well paying technical as well as other jobs beckoning sports people today. So there are many fields where an physical educationist can get job as a career-: Teaching From kindergarten to college, a physical education and health degree qualifies graduates to teach. Instruction involves not only gym or field time but often classroom instruction, depending on your specialty. Demand for online teaching grows every semester, affording talented instructors the opportunity to expand their scope by producing webcasts and videos of their lectures. Conducting physical training classes, organizing games and coaching students in games and athletics. Training students in calisthenics, gymnastics and other physical exercises to promote strength and gracefulness, or to correct body posture. Organizing and instructing or refereeing for games such as hockey, basketball, football etc. Assuming responsibility for the maintenance of gymnasiums and sports equipment. Physical Education teachers also supervise games in junior classes. Coaching At one time or another, many teachers with a physical education and health degree find themselves coaching. While coaches enjoy many rewards, the hours are long. Often, teachers who coach receive supplemental pay for their extra time. At the college level, coaches can receive significant compensation packages and job perks. Selecting potential players Giving them instructions about the rules of the games, planning and precision of movements. Demonstrating techniques of play, drilling them in fundamentals until players become 411

5 familiar with them. Observe players in action, and offer helpful criticism and corrective methods. Umpire/Referee:- This job requires knowledge of the rules of the game one is refereeing. Recognized state or national bodies appoint umpires/referees. Their job is to conduct the games and sports in accordance with rules and regulations. Inspecting sports equipment, the ground, and enforcing compliance of schedules and rules is part of their job. Training Beyond the training required in both individual and team sports, physical education graduates may work as trainers in private gyms, aerobic centers, recreation centers and many other establishments. Their education in performance analysis and movement study provides invaluable aid to trainees in any locale. Work with clients on a One-on-one basis in either a gym or the client's home and shape the body through proper exercises Performance Analysis Many amateur and professional athletes search for an instructor or mentor or trainer who can break down their performance into its various components and analyze how they can increase speed or find more efficiency in their movements. A physical education and health degree can supply the required skills for this function. Sports and Recreation Management With a recreation or leisure studies degree, a graduate can coordinate of the myriad activities at a sports or recreation center, as well as in a municipal recreation program. Adventure and Tourism:- Mountaineering. Rock-climbing. Rafting bungee jumping Research Especially at the doctoral level, a physical education and health degree can launch a research career. This career track appears most often in the field of kinesiology, or study of human movement. 412

Dietician:- Plan food and nutrition programs and supervise the preparation and serving of meals.

Roles exist in national governing bodies and charities, as well as large commercial operators.
