Six interns picked to work for the World’s Largest Soccer Coaches’ Organization for a semester, collaborating to make “Learn. Participate. Belong.” come to life for 30,000 member coaches.

While that may sound like an introduction for a reality show, it’s a brief, yet true, description of what the NSCAA Internship Program is about.

Each semester (Fall, Spring, Summer), several students and recent graduates from all over the world embark on an exciting and educational term with the NSCAA national office in Kansas City, Kan.

The NSCAA internship offers opportunities to work closely with several departments within the Association, all fueled by the passion for the soccer industry and their respective career fields. Interns develop and lead projects that reinforce the NSCAA’s goals, are also allotted ways to work with a variety of NSCAA partners such as Eurosport, Kwik Goal, MLS and FOX Soccer.

Additional benefits include:

  • Have a one-on-one lunch with the NSCAA CEO Joe Cummings
  • Attend social and networking outings with your peers and the office staff
  • Receive an NSCAA Coaching Diploma at no cost to you
  • An affordable housing option located in the heart of Kansas City and only 10 minutes from the NSCAA office
  • Working in a fun, upbeat environment

Positions for the 2013 spring semester starting February 1 are now open, with opportunities in marketing, communications, graphic design, events and education.
