Sports Psychologists


Specific salary statistics for sports psychologists are not readily available. In general, psychologists' salaries depend on their area of their expertise, the location of their practice, and whether or not they practice alone or in a partnership. The U.S. Department of Labor reports that median annual earnings for all psychologists were $80,370 in May 2019. The lowest paid 10 percent earned less than $45,380, and the highest paid 10 percent earned more than $132,070. Be forewarned, however, that with the higher salary comes long years of study in order to attain the educational background necessary to practice. In fact, in order to stay current with topics ranging from treatment to medication, psychologists must continue to learn and study their field for as long as they intend to practice.
