Spring 2013 - UREC

Sport Management Internship - Baltimore

Received this message today about an internship opportunity for summer 2013 in the Sports Management/Administration/Events field.
Aloha Tournaments, a Baltimore, MD based company, is the world’s largest youth lacrosse tournament company. In 2012, over 40,000 athletes, between the ages of 7-18 competed in twenty different events.  Aloha Tournaments hosts some of the largest, most well run lacrosse and field hockey events in the nation. While the competition is always top notch, emphasis is placed on providing each player, along with their family and friends, a unique experience. 
We are looking for two interns for summer 2013 who will serve as the right hand to the Tournament Director for each event from start to finish. The intern will have a wide variety of responsibilities throughout the summer from preparing to execution and the final wrap up of each event. Also, each intern will be assigned a summer long project they will be responsible for completing and presenting to Aloha Tournament’s staff at the conclusion of their internship. 
Thank you in advance for passing this internship opportunity along to your students. Attached please find a detailed description of the internship, compensation and application process. Questions should be directed to or 410-252-5642.
