University of Wisconsin Strength and Conditioning Internship Positions
An internship with the University of Wisconsin strength and conditioning program will benefit all parties involved.
The Wisconsin strength and conditioning internship program is designed to provide students the opportunity to work with Division I student-athletes and develop the hands-on skills to start a successful career as a collegiate strength and conditioning coach.
Student interns must be committed to the field of Strength and Conditioning and be eager to learn and participate in all areas. Each student intern will be responsible for developing a positive rapport with the student-athletes while maintaining a professional distance. The student intern will learn to establish him or herself as a strength and conditioning professional to not only the student-athletes, but to all coaches and administrators as well.
The experience gained during this non-paid internship will be achieved through:
- The work load will be high, which will ensure that the individual involved and staff gain equal benefit from the internship, as well as allow ample opportunity for the intern to have a realistic experience of the profession.
- Administrative duties as assigned by the staff – Administrative duties such as setup and daily maintenance will provide experience in the upkeep of the facility. These duties will increase in intensity as initiative as trust is established between all parties involved.
- Teach proper techniques for Olympic lifts, power lifts, mobility, core and speed development exercises.
- Motivating student-athletes to achieve their maximum potential in all areas of performance.
- Reading articles, books and watching DVD/Videos to enhance training knowledge as well as to have professional discussions.
The internship evaluation will be based on feedback provided by the Wisconsin staff and his/her institutional evaluations (as applicable). The quality of evaluation received is based on the level to which the intern satisfies the staff’s expectation as outlined in their contract. By understanding and adhering to the internship expectations outline and being diligent in following through on the professional development opportunities, the prospective intern can assume a positive experience.
As a staff, we will work hard to make the internship experiences positive and expect the same in return. Please note the deadlines for the seasonal internships.
