Dear Athletic Trainer or Sports Medicine Staff Student Intern:

The Athletic Trainer Internship Program at The Volleyball Festival provides an excellent opportunity for student and certified athletic trainers to get hands-on experience in the field of athletic training. With over 500 teams from throughout the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and other countries, the tournament provides a multitude of educational experiences. A staff of approximately 20 students and 25 athletic trainers are supervised by an outstanding group of 5 senior staff athletic trainers. You will have opportunities to learn from these professionals and their wide range of experience in the field of athletic training. Additionally, we have a fantastic group of on-site physicians who provide medical care to the athletes as well as education to our staff. Please note that priority hiring is given first to returning members of previous Volleyball Festival staff and to those who are available for the entire tournament with no scheduling conflicts.

The Volleyball Festival competition is held June 26 thru June July 3, 2021 in Phoenix, AZ at the Phoenix Convention Center.
