Major: Sports Leadership The Austin Sports and Social Club internship was extremely well-rounded, allowing me to truly learn how a sports organization comes together. It also provided the opportunity to specialize in areas of interest, working with those related departments. I focused my time in three main departments: player services, logistics, and marketing. Below are highlights from each department; it is in no means all-inclusive. Player services: Managed the info account for 25,000+ players Managed and sorted data to construct teams Managed the roster compliance database Compiled registration reports Constructed conflict management exam for officials/coordinators Recorded and responded to league survey responses Logistics: Created and posted schedules for multiple leagues Created playoff brackets for multiple leagues Created and managed tournament brackets and standings Compiled venue reference files Marketing: Managed social media accounts with 20,000+ followers Prepared monthly marketing reports utilizing analytics Designed venue placement database for back linking options Established Google My Business accounts On the field: Built knowledge base to successfully officiate flag football Coordinated multiple tournaments Managed championship brackets and standings Enhanced conflict management and public speaking abilities
Major: Sports Leadership I was in charge of gathering data, pictures, and writing excerpts for the Annual Giving Guide for the recent school year. The annual report outlines accomplishments of the athletes, teams, and what the money that was donated went to. The 20 page guide was recently completed by a graphic designer and will be released online and in print. I have also helped with creating letters to donors and compiling donor gifts.
