Can you help me out?

Can you help me out?

Postby Miami in Ohio? » Thu Dec 21, 2006 1:01 pm

I am entering my second semester at Miami University in Ohio. I want to get involved with the athletics because Sports Management is something I would like to pursue after graduating. I figure if I get started early, by the time of my Senior year I will have many recommendations from a Div. 1 school.

Baseball is my fondest interest. I wanted to email the coach of the baseball team to ask about areas where I could help out. The thing is, I don't know what to say in the email. Any suggestions.

Right now I have this...

Coach Dan Simonds,

I am a Freshman at Miami University and baseball has always been an interest of mine. I live and grew up in the Boston area, so following baseball has been a way of life for me. I was wondering if there were any opportunities for me to help out with the team this season........

Thanks!

I'd add, specifically, in an off-field capacity, and I'd mention your interest in going into sports management after college. So that he doesn't go 'sure, I want you to ensure my beer is topped up constantly whilst I'm watching video of the last game.'

thats basically what you say for a 'team manager' position (film games, wash uni's, etc). when i was looking for managers for the track team the #1 skill i wanted from the person was the ability to show up whenever we needed them so i think thats what you should highlight...your willingness to do whatever they want. its kind of a bitch job, but if you have a good attitude there can be rewards. if you dont get in with baseball ask about the other sports. hit up the athletic department for any kind of job--ticket office, sports information, event security, etc. eventually you meet the right people and move up.

nice job, although you may not be so happy when you find how many hours you work vs. how much you get paid. :-) if you're lucky you might end up with a nice road trip to someplace warm.
