More about SASS ...
SASS members have the opportunity to receive hands on training on the many facets of running an athletic department. It is our desire to provide on-the-job training as well as develop the problem solving skills needed for the next generation of athletic administrators. SASS membership is a tremendous opportunity for students who love sports to find an area of athletics that could very well serve as their vocation after graduation. Students will receive training in eligibility/compliance, sports information and game-day operations. SASS membership is a great resume builder and could lead to other paid internship opportunities in the field of athletics.
