The Sports Corp is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to creating and attracting sporting events that contribute to the quality of life for citizens of the Pikes Peak Region and generate an economic impact for the community. Annual events include: Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack, Rocky Mountain State Games, Colorado Springs Sports Hall of Fame, Broadmoor Pikes Peak Cycling Hill Climb, Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off, sports luncheons and an annual golf tournament.
The primary focus of this internship will be to assist staff with all areas of preparation for Sports Corp events occurring in the spring and summer, including the Rocky Mountain State Games (RMSG), Colorado’s largest multi-sport festival, hosting more than 10,000 athletes of all ages and abilities competing in 35+ sports. Interns will also work in some capacity on additional events organized and executed by The Sports Corp.
This internship will feature numerous hands-on projects, background/planning information for each event as well as after action analysis. Professional development sessions will be held on a regular basis to allow interns the opportunity to refine skills and talents necessary for future roles in sports and event management. Additionally, formal mid and final internship evaluations will be conducted for the purpose of further professional development.
