About Our Internship Program
The Colorado Eagles are committed to providing college students with a one-of-a-kind internship program that will prepare you for your future career in the sports industry. With the Eagles, you will be able to learn from some of the best in the industry and strengthen your skills and knowledge in sports management. Interns will have the opportunity to work closely with Eagles front office staff members and learn how a professional team operates through a multitude of real-life tasks and situations. 

How To Make Our Team
Our interns bring a strong work ethic and excellent communication skills. Working in sports requires a large time commitment so we expect that all interns will be available for 80% of games and some events. Games and events can fall on nights, weekends, and/or holidays, and we ask that you understand this before applying. We require that all interns have a reliable form of transportation to and from games and community events and maintain a professional appearance when working for the Eagles. 

Why Event Production?
When you attend a sporting event, chances are you have caught yourself watching the jumbotron and all the videos and live-action on the big screen.  Through the hard work of ticketing and marketing departments, fans come in the doors, but event production is what keeps the game running smoothly. If you want to learn about in-arena production and work on a broadcast crew this is the internship for you. 

What You Will Gain from Us
Our interns will have the opportunity to work on a real sports broadcast crew. Each night interns will have the chance to run a camera, work in graphics creation and playback, lighting, and master control giving them the chance to learn all aspects of in-arena production.
