ITA Internship Program

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) now offers fall, spring and summer internships to college students and recent graduates

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) now offers fall, spring, and summer internships to college students and recent graduates. In addition to serving as the national coaches association for collegiate tennis, the ITA also serves as the governing body of college tennis, overseeing men’s and women’s varsity tennis at all levels – NCAA Divisions I, II and III, NAIA and Junior/Community College. As a result, ITA internships are an excellent opportunity for current or former college students to receive valuable experience in the administration and promotion of a major, collegiate olympic sport. While all degrees are welcome, the internship program will be most beneficial to students pursuing degrees in sports management, sports administration, and similar degree fields.

ITA internship periods are based on school semester length and can be utilized for course credit (subject to approval by the college or university). The internship program is also a remote-work program and requires approximately 12-15 hours per week. The ITA can provide flexibility with respect to the number of days per week or times of the day that those hours are fulfilled. The internship program may also offer optional opportunities for limited travel to ITA events and championships throughout the year. Expenses for any business-related travel would be covered by the ITA.

Internship opportunities are now available within our Competitive Department.

This internship may also offer optional opportunities for limited travel to ITA championships throughout the year. Expenses for any business-related travel would be covered by the ITA.
