The sports industry is an exciting place to work – two days are never the same. If you enjoy overseeing events or have dreams of one day running the World Series, then there’s no better place to start your journey than here at Midwest Sports Productions. 
 
Our team is a fun-loving, energized and dynamic group at the heart of Midwest Sports   Productions' world class events. Our goal is to drive excitement, win new customers, introduce existing customers to new and exciting experiences and make an impact on the communities in which we run our tournaments. 
  
Each mission and execution is different and is catered to the audience at hand: be it providing the energy needed in the office, igniting the coolest youth sports event in town, visiting a club team just to say thanks for 'playing MSP,' a special guest of ours about to perform or supporting a team that's in need.  We make sure that every MSP family member we engage with gets a special interaction, giving them that little something extra when they need it most and creating a whole new level of energetic feel before, during and after MSP events.
 
Our Event Management Intern will work on all aspects of organizing and running youth fastpitch and baseball tournaments. From scheduling to park decorating to answering phones to inviting teams to join, you will be tasked with helping many of our 150+ tournaments run successfully each weekend.
