Research of sport psychology : LUSENET : APA Division 47 Exercise and Sport Psychology : One Thread

I am working on a research report on sport psychology and I was wondering if you can suggest to me some cites that would give me some good information about: pay, education requirements, responsibilities how to get started, what is the AAASP or APA what are the advatages, what can you do with your degree of psychology, and would you recomend this job to future pupils. thank you for taking the time to even look at these questions. Hopefully you may have an answer.
