Personal Summary

To Whom It May Concern,

Sports have always been a part of my life since I can remember. As I child I played on as many teams as possible, starting with Football. I joined teams in Junior school, Secondary School and College as well as different clubs outside of school. My favorite sport is football but I also played Basketball, Badminton, Field Hockey, Cricket and Table Tennis.

I took my love of sports to college and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport and Exercise Development and loved my time working with kids and giving them a love for sports and exercise. Working in this industry is very fulfilling and with over five years of experience, I feel that I would be an asset to any sport’s program.

Physical education is so important for children today, much more so than in the past before video games and computers kept them inside. Teaching them to love sports is only part of my passion; the other part is getting and keeping them healthy through physical activity. This physical activity can also be a part of the video game genre and I try to teach students to use these games as tools to improve and practice their chosen sport and position.

My excellent communication skills make it possible to convey information in a clear and easy to understand manner. I am a self-starter with very strong computer, organizational and multi-tasking skills along with the ability to solve complex problems. My abilities also include building strong relationships, creating a good public image for the team and generating interest in the program
