A teenage sports trainer helps teach younger kids how to play a particular sport or how to improve in that sport. You will need to plan lessons on the sport of your choice, which should include a short and simple teaching part, lots of drills, and a friendly game. Keep in mind that a lot of work goes into being a sports trainer, but it’s also very rewarding.
This is the ideal summer job for an older teen who is passionate about a certain sport and who likes working with younger kids. By planning out a week’s worth of activities, you can sign kids up to your “Sports Camp” where they can come to the park, learn a sport, practice and improve their skills, and have a ton of fun.
How much you get paid will depend on several factors including how much you charge per child and how many kids come to your camp. You may also need to buy extra sports equipment when you are first starting: practice jerseys, cones, balls, etc. If you know someone who has these, you may also borrow them.
Depending on what sport you are teaching and how many hours per day you will be holding your lessons, you may charge between $50 and $200 per child. Keep in mind that if you get too many kids, you will need to hire friends or family members to come help you out.
