BLACKSBURG – Tech softball student-athletes Jessica McNamara and Dani Anderson have been selected to attend the 2014 Career in Sports Forum at the NCAA national office in Indianapolis, Ind., on June 5-8, 2014.
McNamara and Anderson were chosen out of more than 1,100 applicants. The Career in Sports Forum (CSF) is an annual educational forum sponsored by the NCAA that brings together 200 selected student-athletes for four days to learn and explore potential careers in sports, with the primary focus on intercollegiate athletics. The CSF is designed to assist student-athletes in charting their career paths, to give them the opportunity to network and to learn from current athletics professionals.
By attending the Career in Sports Forum, participants will:
· consider how personal values intersect with career opportunities;
· better understand how behavioral styles impact individual effectiveness;
· develop actionable plans for personal growth and development;
· gain an accurate view of the role of the intercollegiate coach or athletics administrator;
· benefit from the opportunity to network with key decision-makers on campus and at the NCAA
This year Virginia Tech nominated seven student-athletes. In 2011, women’s swimmer Cara Murnan and track and field member Keith Ricks attended the forum. All fees including registration, airfare, transportation and meals will be covered for this event.
