The crack of the bat. The roar of the crowd. The in-game contests. The park atmosphere. It’s all part of the game-day experience for fans attending any sporting event and it’s a key component of Midwest Sports Productions tournaments. We don’t just produce tournaments – we create memories. And we need creative, fun-loving, energetic people to help us host world-class events for world-class people. 
 
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 Game Day Experience Intern will help conceptualize and create the game day experience for our more than 150 youth fastpitch and baseball tournaments. From decorating parks for special events to judging contests, you will be right in the middle of all the action. 
 
In addition to Game Day Experience projects, you may also have the opportunity to work in other services such as marketing, social media, business development initiatives and event management as needed.
