For the vast majority of jobs, no one cares if you did a sport or not. Maybe there would be an HR manager somewhere that was a sports nut that may be influenced but that would be very rare. When I have hired people from university, I cannot even recall if they listed a sport on their resume. But then I hired engineers and for an engineer to do a sport more intense than bowling would be odd. I did the very minimum sports required to fulfill my requirements and that was bowling. However, I later transferred to a technical college that did not even offer sports. The lack never hurt my job prospects.
