Spring 2020
Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - Wednesday, May 6th, 2020

Our internship is designed to be the culminating experience for students completing their kinesiology (or sports-related) bachelor's or master's degree and to provide them with the opportunity to apply theories and concepts learned in the classroom in a professional setting. This internship is the only gateway into employment with us as a Sports Performance Coach. Those seeking to begin or continue their career in the fitness industry, sports performance coaching are highly encouraged to apply.

During this internship, interns will learn in a hands-on and classroom manner. They will have an opportunity to assist in coaching of group training and one-on-one sessions, and to participate in the training of professional athletes. The Internship Mentor will work closely with each intern according to our curriculum which will include academic hours of presentations, assignments, and workshops. We conduct mid-term evaluations to assess an intern’s professional development in order help cultivate their abilities as a sports performance coach and an individual entering the workforce.

This Sports Performance internship offers academic credit, monetary compensation (semester stipend) and is the required passageway to employment as a Sports Performance coach with Fairchild Sports Performance, the most trusted name in athletic development.

Though experience in coaching is not required, a formal educative base and/or practical experience in the fitness realm is most ideal to effectively complete the internship and be a viable candidate for employment thereafter. Candidates seeking a career in Sports Performance Coaching are highly encouraged to apply.
