Graduated trainers are also involved in different events in different sports branches in addition to organizations of the federations.

Career Areas

Graduates with third-tier coach licenses may serve as team coaches and youth team coaches depending on the systems of different federations. They can become a technical director at the beginning of their substructures by having the same undergraduate degree. In recent years, the chance to work as statistics coaches in some clubs due to the technological advances in team sports has emerged. New graduates can also work as trainers and organizers in tournaments and organizations for employees of companies in different businesses.
