The NCDA is always looking to improve and provide a better dodgeball experience for the league. In part, that is why we started an internship program, to allow for new ideas to be developed and grow the league. We are proud to announce that we are offering two internships starting in June and running to the end of August. Upon completion, they will receive the Tim Ebert Memorial Scholarship for their work. The two positions will be the Social Media Specialist and Recruitment & Retention Coordinator. Below are the two candidates and what they will be working on for the league.
Social Media Specialist- Caleb Frank
Caleb Frank attends Central Michigan University where he is pursuing a Broadcasting & Cinematic Arts degree. He will be working with our Chief of Content, Kevin Bailey. In this position, Caleb will be completing various tasks such as: conducting interviews with current captains and alumni, developing video clips to promote and advertise the league, and researching topics and reporting on them. He has a lot of ideas and the board looks forward to seeing what he is able to create!
Recruitment & Retention Coordinator– William Brandt
William Brandt attends Georgia Southern University where he is pursuing a degree in Business Administration. He will be working with our Director of League Expansion and Retention, Jacob Leski. For this position, he will be working on different projects such as: updating our database for potential new schools to be added to the league, researching school requirements to start a club, and developing a list of alumni interested in coaching or mentoring a team. The board knows that his work will have a huge impact on expanding the league and allow for continued growth.
NCDA Board’s Thoughts
The NCDA board is very excited to have these individuals be a part of our team. In discussing the positions with these two, we can tell that they are eager to begin. We are excited to see what they accomplish over the next few months and the impact they will bring to the league! A special thanks to Wesley Peters for conducting the interviews and providing the board with valuable feedback in helping us make our decisions.
