Internships With The A7FL

So You want to Learn About the sports world?

Thank you for your interest in internship opportunities with the A7FL as we build towards our 8th season beginning on March 27, 2022

We are proud to announce the development of the A7FL Internship Program providing opportunities for college students and those looking to expand their network and experience in the sports management and entertainment field. We welcome passionate and hard-working individuals that are looking to get hands-on with a football team or even the league offices.

We offer 2 internship seasons, pre-season (Aug-March) and in-season (April-July), but an internship can begin at any time. Most of our interns work both seasons and many of our interns go on to a paid position after their internship period is over.
