The Sports Studies Club Celebrates One Year

The Sports Industry Club will be having its last meeting of the school year this Wednesday, April 16. The meeting will celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Sports Industry Club being on campus. 

Pizza and refreshments will be provided at this meeting.  Also, during this meeting, there will be an election for the new Executive Board.  Positions that will be available are President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Social Media Coordinator. 

This club has provided opportunities within the sports industry to various students on campus, by hosting meetings, presenting numerous speaker series events, as well as hosting off-campus events.

Some notable speakers this organization has hosted include representatives from the New York Yankees, New York Rangers, Philadelphia Phillies, and more.  This club has also hosted field trips to sporting events.

This upcoming Saturday, April 20, the Sports Industry Club will also be attending the Lakewood Blueclaws game at 4:05 p.m.  This event provides students with free transportation to and from the game, as well as a chance to tour and meet with a few executive members of the Lakewood Blueclaws.

Max Sobrano, a senior business management student and the club’s President and Founder, has been an extremely dedicated president for this club.  He’s constantly been in contact with various sports teams such as the New York Knicks, New York Nets, New Jersey Devils, and New York Giants, developing new relationships that could assist in the growth of students’ potential in the sports industry.  He has also built new relationships with Madison Square Garden, as he’s attended Career Fairs at Madison Square Garden with other club members. 

In addition to the numerous achievements Sobrano has accomplished, he has also recently won President of the Year for all of Monmouth’s clubs and organizations. 

“Thank you so much to everyone that has made the Sports Industry Club so successful,” said Sobrano.

“Although this is an individual award, it means absolutely nothing without the assistance of all of my amazing Executive Board, as well as our club members.  I can’t wait to see all of the successes of this club in the future and hopefully it gives everyone the ability to get started in the sports industry,” continued Sobrano.

Robert Disko, a senior business student and Club Vice President, also had a few closing remarks to the end of this school year. 

“We all want to thank all of the speakers we’ve had come, as well as all of our club members.  Without the assistance and support you’ve all brought us, none of this would be possible,” expressed Disko.
