CAREERS IN SPORTS

Connecting High School Student Athletes to the Vast Careers in the World of Sports

OUR MISSION

Careers In Sports (CIS) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to presenting career options in the sports industry to high school student athletes. We inspire youth from various socioeconomic backgrounds to seek lucrative careers off the field, creating a diverse workforce for the sports industry in both gender and race.

VISION

Careers in Sports provides information and knowledge to high school student athletes in an effort to channel their dedication to their athletic skills into a bonafide successful career within their chosen sport. Whether it is through our mentoring program, financial literacy program or internship program or our signature EXPO, we seek to inspire youth and aid them in securing their futures with impactful careers in the sports world, off the field.

BY THE NUMBERS

PROFESSIONAL STATS

The stats show the probability of a high school athlete making it in the pros and making millions like Trout or Harden is very small. The probability of a high school athlete making millions over a lifetime pursuing a career in the sports industry is much higher.

Our goal is to equip student athletes with the desire, knowledge and forethought. This is accomplished through introduction to career opportunities, taking advantage of a college scholarship to learn the proper coursework for that chosen career, and internships in desired fields.

A STUDY BY THE NCAA CONCLUDED:

“Sadly though, it comes as a rude surprise to many athletes yearning for a professional sports career to learn that the odds against success are astronomically high..Student athletes whose sole and now failed objective was to make the pros suddenly find themselves in a world that demands skills their universities did not require them to learn.”
