Sport Personal Statement Examples

The main things we look for in a sports student is someone who is passionate about sport; committed and professional in their approach to working in sport, and has great interpersonal skills as sport is a people business.

What to include in a personal statement for sport

  • The experience you have in sport. This could be playing a range of sports, but more importantly, any experience of volunteering, coaching, leading or organising sport and fitness opportunities for others.
  • Confirm the course you are currently studying and provide details of any sport-related qualifications you hold, like an CYQ Level 3 in Activity Leadership.
  • Study the course content and tailor your statement accordingly. Demonstrate a good knowledge of the course and how your current studies, interests and activities/experience are relevant to this area of study, be it coaching, sport science or strength and conditioning.
  • Talk about the modules you are looking forward to studying and why.
  • Emphasise how the course will support your future career pathway. If you know where you want to be in five years’ time, say so.
  • Make sure your personality shines through. Sport is all about working with people, so it’s crucial that your team working, interpersonal skills, positive attitude and initiative come across.
  • Avoid talking too much about wanting to do a football/rugby degree because you play rugby or football or watch it on the TV.
  • Finally, don't use famous quotes from people you admire. We are interested in what you have to say - not your sporting heroes.
