By ODU Athletics
NORFOLK, Va. – Erin Kinz of the Old Dominion women's soccer team has been selected to participate in the 2017 NCAA Career in Sports Forum. The Career in Sports Forum is an annual educational forum hosted by the NCAA, which brings together 200 student-athletes to learn and explore potential careers in sports, with the primary focus on college athletics. Kinz was one of just three student-athletes to be selected by the NCAA Committee to attend.
Each year, more than 460,000 student-athletes participate in 24 sports at more than 1,100 NCAA member institutions. Regardless of the sport they play, student-athletes all have one thing in common when they graduate: moving into the workforce.
This unique, four-day forum is designed to assist student-athletes in charting their career paths, as well as provide an opportunity to network and learn from current athletics professionals.
The cutting-edge topics covered by industry experts include: how personal values intersect with career opportunities, how behavioral styles impact individual effectiveness, the key professional and career development information to assist with transition from a student-athlete to a professional, and the role of the college coach or athletics administrator. Participants will network with peers, as well as key decision-makers at the campus, conference and national level of college athletics.
The 2017 Career in Sports Forum will take place June 1-4 in Indianapolis at the NCAA national office.
