At MSA, we have a passion to teach life outside of sport… and that extends to college students! We offer both sports and building internships throughout the academic year. These dynamic programs teach students the inner workings of youth sports and facilities, including but not limited to, marketing, customer retention, program development, event planning, and more. 


We are looking for enthusiastic individuals passionate about SPORTS & UNITING the community through athletics. Our interns will work DIRECTLY with our staff and customers as well as LEAD programming and events. 


Throughout the course of your internship, you will: 

  • Make an impact and contribution to your department (building or sport) 
  • Gain career insight and advice from full-time staff 
  • Set career goals beyond your time with MSA 
  • Learn valuable organizational and office skills

Within the MSA internship program, students can elect either the Sports or Building Department.
