- Shooting Lessons: I have a friend that makes great extra money offering kids basketball shooting lessons. You can make around 30 bucks an hour (maybe more) if you have the knowledge and skill set to teach. The main obstacle is finding gym time, so consider a rec center that offers cheap memberships. You could also partner with local coaches for help. If you have enough business, you could rent a court.
- Hitting Lessons: If baseball or softball is your thing, then start signing kids up to take hitting lessons. Partnering with the local school coaches is a great way to develop business.
- Referee / Umpire: Referees and umpires are always needed. You can stick with little league or go for adult leagues. It does require a class or two and you have to pass a written test. If you love sports, this is a great way to pocket some extra cash and it’s flexible because you choose when you work.
- Coaching: There are plenty of coaching jobs that pay. Usually it’s at the middle school, high school or college level. But, if you love sports or you’re a former athlete, this can be an enjoyable and rewarding way to make some extra money.
- Strength and Conditioning Training: This is a great side hustle for former athletes who have been through this type of training. You can connect with local school teams to get your name out there. Parents will pay for this type of training for their athlete and it’s a great way to be involved in the community.
- Gun Permit Instructor: If this is an interest of yours then consider teaching the class and getting paid. The rules and regulations vary from state to state, so be sure to find out the process for your state.
- Boot Camp Instructor: If you have a fitness background then try giving Boot Camp Classes. You can hold an outdoor class at a local park and not have any sort of overhead costs. Make the class fun and beneficial and people will be lining up to join.
