Dear Athletic Trainer or Sports Medicine Staff Student Intern:

The Volleyball Festival provides an excellent opportunity for students and certified athletic trainers (AT’s) to get hands-on experience in event medicine as an athletic trainer. With over 600 teams from across the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and other countries, the tournament provides many educational experiences. We will select a staff of approximately 30 Athletic Trainers and 15 athletic training students to work the event under the supervision of an outstanding group of senior staff athletic trainers. You will have opportunities to learn from these professionals who have a wide range of experience in the field of athletic training and sports medicine. Additionally, we have a fantastic group of on-site physicians from CORE Orthopedics who serve as our Medical Director, assist in the medical care of the participants. Please note priority hiring is given first to returning members of previous Volleyball Festival staff and to those available for the entire tournament without scheduling conflicts.

The Volleyball Festival competition days are Sunday June 23 through Sunday June 30, 2024, in Phoenix, AZ at the Phoenix Convention Center, with sports medicine staff expected to arrive night of June 20, 2024, Phoenix for Sports Medicine staff orientation and training on June 21 & 22, 2024.
