The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for athletic trainers will grow faster than the average for all careers throughout 2022. The increasing number of amateur and school sports teams accounts for some of this growth, as does the public's increasing interest in health and fitness. The strongest growth is occurring in the health care industry, according to the DOL, as "advances in injury prevention and detection and more sophisticated treatments are projected to increase the demand for athletic trainers." Opportunities should also be good with the military, which is hiring civilian sports trainers to help personnel reduce the risk of injury during exercise and to help rehabilitate those who have been injured.
