Midwest Sports Productions is looking for a highly motivated individual to join our team who is ready to help us successfully create and execute our more than 150 tournaments.  The key to our success begins with our logistical and warehouse operations, giving interns a real-world, hands-on experience. 
 
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 Logistics and Warehouse Management Intern will assist with the on-the-ground, operational aspects of tournament promotion. You will help create trophies, set up ballparks for special events and weekly tournaments and organizing and conducting inventory in multiple warehouses.
