Duke University Olympic Sports Performance is looking for qualified candidates for our Volunteer Internship Program for the FALL of 2018 and/or SPRING of 2019.

Duke University is one of the most successful programs in Division I Athletics and competes in the Atlantic Coast Conference. As an intern you would work with 23 men's and women's programs (excluding football and Men's and Women's basketball).
Our goals for our interns: Be an integral member of the staff, improve on floor coaching, assist in program writing, implementation, and analysis, and learn the necessary tools to obtain a career in the strength and conditioning field.
Responsibilities include: Assisting full-time staff in the implementation and development of programs designed to improve strength, speed, power, and targeted energy system development; enhance functional movement patterns; and improve joint and soft-tissue support. Interns are additionally expected to complete weekly assignments and attend weekly meetings as a part of their intern curriculum.

However, undergraduate and graduate level credits are available for students during the Fall and/or Spring semester.

The Duke University Olympic Sports Performance Volunteer Internship Program will additionally cover costs associated with taking either the CSCCa or CSCS examination (conference fee, membership fee, testing fee, hotel stay for duration of conference and travel to conference), but participants must commit and complete both the Fall and Spring semesters.
