I work as an employee to a University in sports coaching administration all year round. Call it ROLE A. 

 

While working ROLE A, I took-up a short term sports coaching role which was to be remunerated (I have yet to be paid for it). Call it ROLE B. 

 

ROLE B was coaching a sports team in a sport which is a real passion. 

 

Characteristics of ROLE B:

It is a short term 12 weeks.

I had never coached this team before. 

There is no ongoing committment.

I was still employed and working 9.00am - 5.00pm at ROLE A while undertaking ROLE B

ROLE B was completed during hours in the evening and weekends. 

Total remuneration of ROLE B is less then 18% against my normal annual salary from ROLE A.

 

Can I class this as a hobby?

If you are being paid for it then no it is not a hobby.

It doesn't matter how much and or how little time was spent doing it.
