the indicators of the professional profiles of the physical education teachers. The
results showed that physical education teachers should meet several professional
requirements. Also, revealed five main requirements, namely, psychological and
pedagogical requirements, personal and professional requirements, teaching (or
methodological) requirements, communicative and organizational requirements,
and scientific-educational requirements. The research results can be applied to the
