Description of the Tasks/Projects Completed

My main responsibilities for my internship included: maintaining facility maintenance of the Woodland Facility, scheduling facility rentals for clients, creating monthly schedules for the facility, checking in members for drop-in play, concessions work during tournaments/events, event set-up/tear down for tournament play, creating a practice plan for youth basketball coaches, office admin work and any other day-to-day tasks that were needed.

Skills/Knowledge Gained Through The Experience

I learned a lot on what sport facility managers do on a day-to-day basis, as well as scheduling events/rentals for potential clients/trainers and facility maintenance.

Favorite Part of the Experience

My favorite part of the internship was creating a practice plan for the youth basketball coaches in the MBA program. It was a fun process using my basketball knowledge in real-time and building relationships with the people I worked closely with. I also had the chance to work during the Xzavier Tillman camp during the summer which was pretty dope to be that close to an NBA player.

How the Experience Influenced Future Career Goals

It helped me to understand what sector within SPM that I would be most comfortable in. I now know that this atmosphere would be great for me in the long term.
