Why should you participate in the USG Academy?


In today’s world, we are inundated with everything needed to improve your life, whether it be self-help books, podcasts, or Ted Talks. Wherever you look, you’ll find something. So what makes our USG Academy worth your time? What can you walk away with that you wouldn’t get anywhere else? Great question! Below are three reasons why you should prioritize joining one of our many USG Academy teams in 2022.

1. You will find desired harmony between a busy career in the sport industry and your personal life.


The USG Academy emphasizes ways to prioritize your family, friends, church, and hobbies amidst a demanding job within the sport industry. Although you can’t really tell your boss no to your job responsibilities, you can implement small habits and routines into your everyday life that allow you to stay grounded in your identity in Christ, committed to your walk with the Lord, and focused on life goals that you’ve set.


2. You will find practical approaches to navigating the sport industry and advancing in your career.


The USG Academy provides you with simple, yet effective, tips and tools to help you get your foot in the door and successfully navigate the sport industry. We break down the basics of networking, provide easy ways to connect with industry professionals and introduce you to opportunities available throughout the country.


3. You will find Christ-centered community that shares a passion for following Jesus combined with working in the sport industry.


The USG Academy offers deep connections to other Christians in the college and professional sport industries, both through the eight-week training and beyond. Once you complete the Academy, you will gain access to our custom USG Connect app where you will be able to interact with hundreds of current and incoming sport professionals, while also participating in many of our spiritual and professional conferences, events, and mission trips throughout the year.
