The Gujarat Govt. has taken a praiseworthy initiative by establishing Swarnim Gujarat Sports University (SGSU) in Gandhinagar for the bright future of the sporting world. A strong and healthy atmosphere for sports has been created in Gujarat through Khel Mahakumbh and new sports schools/academies. The establishment of Swarnim Gujarat Sports University has opened up doors for a wide range of opportunities for students of physical education & sports sciences for making career in sports industry.

The greatest advantage of studying sports is that alongside studying students get many opportunities of becoming a sports person. The sports persons nowadays get great amount of financial help as well as international reputation due to the encouraging policies of the government. Many renowned players have established their own training academies and have succeeded in the professional field as well. At SGSU a number of career oriented courses will be offered. Until now, the activities of sports and physical education were limited only to school and college levels due to which sports coaches and teachers were getting limited job opportunities. But in recent times, there are many opportunities in both public & private sectors.

In private sectors, many recreation clubs, five star hotels, entertainment theme parks, corporate societies, modern townships and private residential buildings with world class facilities have come into existence wherein facilities for sporting activities is accorded prime importance. As a result, new opportunities have arisen for building careers as sports coordinator, swimming pool attendant, gym coach, recreation manager etc. Besides, today many private international and national day schools have been established in which there are requirements of sports coordinators and physical educators.

There are some other fields which are still unfamiliar and untried by the students such as Adventure Sports, Sports Management, Sports Event Management, Sports Tourism, Sports Law, Sports Journalism, Sports Nutrition, Sports Physiotherapy, Sports Massage etc. Career in these fields can earn name, fame and money. SGSU will commence new courses like ‘P.G. Diploma in Sports Tourism’ and ‘P.G. Diploma in Adventure Sports Administration’ so as to prepare experts who can organize national and international level adventure sports activities. At present there is a lack of experts in the aforementioned fields, as a result of which, programmes of international standards cannot be organized. In fitness industry as well fields like Sports Physiotherapy, Sports Nutrition and Medicine, Sports Massage and Sports Exercise therapy etc. lacks experts. SGSU will offer one year course ‘P.G. Diploma in Disability Sports’ to prepare experts in this field.
