Bauer, Fetsch and Fabian chosen to attend NCAA Career in Sports forum

Every year, the NCAA holds its annual NCAA Career in Sports Forum, a four-day event that helps athletes connect with individuals who work in athletic administration, compliance and coaching. The forum will take place in Indianapolis, Indiana from June 8-11. This year, seniors Brenna Bauer, Danielle Fetsch and Bethany Fabian have all been chosen to attend the conference in June.

To be chosen for this honor, each interested athlete must answer six questions and submit his/her responses to the NCAA in order to be nominated. Most of these athletes are either juniors or seniors, and members of SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Committee). Once the athletes submit their application, they are then chosen by the NCAA to attend the forum.

Formerly known as the Student Athlete Leadership Forum, the program used to focus on leadership skills that student athletes could bring with them back to campus. The NCAA changed it about four years ago to be more focused on careers in athletics, and helping students to make connections.

This four-day conference brings together students from 1,000 different institutions, 23 sports and 400,000 student athletes of all different divisions. The NCAA combines the two different career paths in college athletics: coaching and administration. Students are broken down into different groups and work together to learn about different careers and get to know other students athletes.

“This is the first real opportunity for someone interested to communicate with athletic staff,” stated Jeanne Murphy, Associate Director for Student-Athlete Success.

Being selected to attend this forum is a valuable experience for all student athletes interested in having a future in athletics.

“I am really excited to be selected to attend the forum. It will allow me to learn about what career opportunities exist in Athletic Administration,” explained Brenna Bauer. “This experience will prepare me for my future and open doors that would not be possible without it.”
