As a Discovery sports intern, you could see one of many different aspects of the industry. Sports professionals can be found working at educational institutions, professional sports organizations, or in companies that supply, support, or partner with teams and franchises.
As a Discovery Intern, you could be placed at an internship in any one of these types of organizations within the industry. Please note, it is extremely unlikely that you will be working with a major league franchise, although an internship in the sports industry as a high school student will certainly help you take a big step towards that future goal. Interns in the sports industry are much more likely to be involved in "back office" activities and administrative work than in other industries. Furthermore, sports is one of our most popular industries and internships are highly competitive and limited in number. Students applying for sports internships after our December early application deadline should choose at least one backup industry preference when applying.
