Get in the game: a path to a career in the sporting goods industry

Get in the Game* is a program created by Sporting Goods Industry leaders and administered by NSGA to educate college students about the exciting and rewarding careers in sporting goods that are available to talented individuals. The program allows college and university professors to request a speaker through this website. Interested persons who wish to speak to that class would then volunteer to make the presentation. This page serves as a “meeting place” between colleges and potential speakers.
