Sports science personal statement example
I am a keen sports person who decided to learn about what I am passionate about and put my learning to good use. I qualified in Sports Science from (What university, when and what grade) and I am very keen to pass on the knowledge that I have learnt and teach people how to optimise sports at any level.
I am very passionate about sports and staying and being healthy and it helps that I understand the science behind sports and I can explain this carefully to people. I am an excellent communicator and feel that I am able to explain the theory of sports science carefully to people with no previous understanding.
As well as being physically fit and liking to stay fit, I am enthusiastic, self motivated, feel able to motivate others and discuss any issues that they may have towards learning new sports.
