Athletic Department Seeks Student Managers!

Aug. 15, 2008

FAIRFIELD, CT - The Sacred Heart athletic equipment department is seeking some dedicated sports fans looking for practical and enjoyable experience, and a chance to work closely with the Pioneer Division I athletic teams that require student help.

Responsibilities include day-to-day practice management, game day logistics, laundry, equipment issue and retrieval, team travel, support of coaching staff, and various other duties. Student managers work closely with the coaches and student-athletes in their respective sports, often creating unique opportunities for themselves.

Student managers work under the supervision of the full-time equipment staff. Positions are available in football, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's ice hockey, men's and women's lacrosse, as well as administrative positions in the Pitt Center equipment offices. We will consider applicants looking to work with other sports as well.

Hours vary according to the playing and practice seasons, as well as by sport. Some team travel is required in every position except the administrative positions. Students interested in applying for one of the equipment office student manager positions need only have an interest in athletics, ability to multitask, and reasonable athletic ability, as some of the practice management tasks require some athletic ability. Most of the skills required are subtle, and you will be trained in all areas necessary. The ability to follow direction, pay attention to detail, and enjoy yourself are fundamental.

Interested applicants should contact Brendon Smith, Head Equipment Manager, at 203-396-8147 or by e-mail to
