The NCAA student-athletes at the forum will be allowed to choose between two developmental tracks at the forum, the coaching track and the administrator track.
The 2012 coaching track will offer professional development for student-athletes interested in coaching the sport of basketball, bowling, cross country/track & field, football, lacrosse, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis and volleyball. While the administrator track will offer professional development for both internal and external operations of an intercollegiate athletics department including, but not limited to academics, communications, compliance, development, event management, marketing, etc.
"It is a great honor to be selected to the 2012 NCAA Career in Sports Forum," Print, who will be a senior this upcoming season, said. "It will be great learning from and hearing about the experiences of other student-athletes and being a part of the forum will be a great help to me once I leave SFU and pursue a career in athletics."
Print will be provided an educational opportunity where they will learn and gain valuable exposure to careers in sports, specifically in the areas of coaching, administration and sports entertainment. They will examine key functions of a coach or administrator within sports, including foundational skills such as communication, networking, recruiting, managing culture, transitioning and budgeting.
Additionally, the forum will dispel myths about careers in athletics, as well as facilitate an opportunity to obtain information from current and future athletics professionals.
"This is a great honor for Paul and Saint Francis University," Assistant Director of Athletics for Student-Athlete Academic Services John Krimmel said. "Paul is a leader in every sense of the word and I am so happy for him. Paul has made a tremendous impact here at Saint Francis and I know he will continue to do so when he leaves here next fall. He has all the passion and tools necessary to be successful in college athletics for many years to come. Paul and I have spent a lot of time together talking about his future and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with him."
