It is no secret that most of the time the sports reporting and analysis industries are in a state of constant flux. In this constantly changing climate the people who choose to work in this industry must be versatile and able to rise to any challenge thrown their way, otherwise they will find themselves stuck in one position forever, no matter which sport they happen to be covering. But what if you could take a sport like American football and look beyond the headlines and look deeper into how the players, coaches, teams and fans operate so that you could take an analytical look at how this game is being managed?
You could do this by taking a position with a sports broadcasting team and using your knowledge of this particular sport to provide insights that the television audience is not normally privy to. This sports analysis and broadcasting service would provide reports and in depth analysis on everything that is associated with the games that are broadcast, from the players, teams and even the training sessions and routines of the opposing teams. Imagine being able to tell the audience about how well the team is doing against such an opponent, based solely on the details that you have observed during the broadcast of the game. Of course it is also possible to use these skills in other situations, such as with a football league game or a tennis match, but this would require a great deal more work and training than just being able to identify problems or inconsistencies in the players or the team.
A sports analysis and broadcasting career is one that is rewarding both financially and in terms of creativity. The wide range of areas in which you can present information is enormous, from college and university sports to professional team and competition sports, from small town high school sports to world class competitive games such as those played in the NFL, NBA, or Formula 1. There are many different careers that you can follow, depending upon your own interests and skills. As a freelance sports writer you can follow a variety of different paths, choosing projects that suit you best according to your own personal interest and abilities. Alternatively, you may decide to get a job with a particular team, publisher, or even a network television channel, giving you the opportunity to get up close and personal with the people whose activities and lives you are supposed to inform and comment on.
