Erin Clark-Promotions Intern
The ValleyCats internship program is an excellent experience. The front office staff is very knowledgeable about the industry and is dedicated to training interns in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. No two days are alike which enhances the learning experience and adds excitement to the internship. I highly recommend the program to anyone pursuing a career in sports business!
