Sports psychologists usually act in a consulting capacity which gives them an opportunity to make their own hours. Although, they can be employed by a larger company and have regular hours as an individual in any company might have. I think it depends on what type of schedule you would like to have and how you want to fit work into your lifestyle. The individuals I know have their own company and their schedule varies from day to day. They might be out in the field observing a client, or in the office using techniques to improve mental acuity, overcome the fear of failure, etc.
I am a therapist in private practice, so I also make my own hours. For me a full day consists of seeing 4 clients, completing notes, and whatever other administrative tasks need to be completed for that day. It is not unlike other types of therapists including sports psychologists.
