The purpose of this paper is to identifying the functional burden outside the official hours during Corona pandemic and its relationship to the career life quality for female teachers of the faculties of physical education and sports sciences .The researchers adopted the descriptive approach using the analytical survey method and correlational relationships, as it is the most appropriate to the nature of the studied problem and the desired goals. As the total research community was identified, amounting to (243) female teachers distributed over (21) colleges in Iraq, except for the northern regions; the research sample was adopted by (184) teachers, with a percentage of (75%) of the research community. The researchers divided the sample according to the needs of scientific research into three groups, with (14) teachers for the survey sample, (100) teachers for the building sample, and (70) teaching for the application sample. One of the most important results reached by the researcher is that: The task of teaching in the faculties of physical education and sports sciences is of a special, practical and theoretical nature, punctuated by a number of difficulties in performing duties easily, functional burdens are often considered the main factor in influencing actual functional performance ,and increasing interest in social relations between college teachers and strengthening human relations helps create a cooperative organizational climate that achieves the college's goals. One of the most important recommendations recommended by the researchers is that: Work on developing capabilities towards electronic work through educational courses and seminars that achieve a degree of coping with emergency conditions, and attention to their well-being and the relentless pursuit of academic departments in providing the best services and compensating them for working hours outside official working hours with incentives and additional wages.
