I am reaching out today to inform you of co-op positions we have opening at Zero Gravity Basketball for this upcoming spring. The positions will start in mid-January and end in mid-June. Zero Gravity Basketball is a youth basketball event operator based out of Beverly, MA. We have quickly become the market leader of grassroots basketball events throughout the Northeast. In recent years, we have expanded to new markets in the South, Midwest, and the Capital District and are continuing to expand into new regions.
Previous co-op’s have gone on to work for major Division 1 basketball programs, the National Basketball Association, National Football League, Major League Baseball, Adidas, Under Armour, and Reebok to name a few. Co-op’s will be challenged to work in an extremely demanding, fast-paced environment. They will work first-hand with many of our customers, so excellent communication and interpersonal skills will be required. Co-op’s must work both independently as well as with Regional Directors and our Operations staff. Flexibility, working on projects simultaneously, and being able to work extended hours including nights and weekends will all be required.
Zero Gravity plans and manages basketball tournaments, leagues, prep school showcases, clinics and camps for children and young adults to expand their academics through athletic participation. We also have many established partnerships including Adidas, USA Basketball and Muscle Milk. Zero Gravity provides co-op’s the perfect opportunity to learn and apply important sports business concepts that can be used in a variety of different ways.
Attached are our three co-op positions open for Spring 2019; Operations Co-Op, Assistant to Regional Director Co-Op, and Digital Media Co-Op. Included is a description of each position as well as ideal characteristics and skills we will look for in candidates. Serious applicants must submit a cover letter, resume, and three written recommendations.
Zero Gravity has profound respect for both your university and department, and believe that many of your students would be ideal fits for our company. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
