Career in Sports Forum Facilitator Application

The Career in Sports Forum (CSF) is an annual educational forum over four days where selected student-athletes learn and explore careers in sports, with a primary focus on intercollegiate athletics. The CSF works to dispel myths about careers in athletics, as well as, facilitate the opportunity for student-athletes to obtain industry trends and hot topics from current athletics professionals.

The NCAA requests volunteers to facilitate at the CSF. Facilitators will teach career development specific curriculum and engage student-athletes. Individuals interested in becoming facilitators complete an in-depth training by the NCAA that is provided at no cost.
