Country Day's Athletics Internship Program provides current college and graduate students and recent graduates with the opportunity to obtain professional experience in their chosen field. The internships are designed to augment formal classroom instruction, experiment with theory and concepts, utilize practical applications, and begin the development of professional competency. Program participants are drawn mainly from local and regional colleges and universities.
I started out coaching middle school baseball at Country Day and really enjoyed my time there, so when I was finishing up my master's in Athletic Administration and trying to gain experience in my field, this athletic department was the perfect place to start. This internship gave me valuable insight into how a successful athletics department works. I have a lot of great memories working there, and have taken my experiences from Country Day wherever I go.

As a recent graduate in Sport Administration, this internship was the perfect opportunity for me to test my knowledge and expand my experience and understanding of school-based athletics. In addition to this position being my most worthwhile and valuable work experience, I was able to work with some of the best people I know. I am honored to call myself a Buccaneer!
