INDIANAPOLIS – Keegan McCain, a women’s tennis student with UTSA, graduated from the NCAA Annual Sports Career Forum where she represented UTSA and Conference USA. & # XD; The NCAA Career in Sports Forum is an annual program that brings together 200 selected NCAA student athletes of all levels to learn and explore potential careers in sports, particularly university athletics. & # XD; “I am thrilled that Keegan has been selected to participate in this unique professional development event,” said Stefanie Cisneros, vice director of Athletics Life Skills. “It gave her the opportunity to delve deeper into her interests and explore careers within athletics colleges, as well as learn from professionals across the country and develop relationships with peers with similar interests.” & # XD; What was your favorite part of the NCAA Career in Sports Forum? & # XD; KM: My favorite part of the NCAA Sports Career Forum is having met 199 other student athletes from all walks of life who share the same goals as me. When I first arrived it was a bit overwhelming as I didn’t know anyone, but now I have made lifelong contact with like-minded peers. Each person I spoke to had a different reason for wanting to work at athletics colleges, but the overall message remained the same: it’s about student athletes. Which topic / theme stood out for you or the speaker you think you gained the most from? KM: Every speaker I had the honor of listening to had great advice and inspiring words, but if I had to choose the one that spoke to me the most, it would be a presentation by Jonathan Sprinkles. In his presentation, he gave tips on the skills that should be developed in us ch times as student athletes and young professionals in the workplace. Mr. Sprinkles went further and directed the discussion about our lives outside of being an athlete. In an hour-long and 15-minute presentation, we worked deeply into self-reflection and pride in our achievements off the pitch. This part of the presentation included daily affirmations that I could use at the beginning of the day before entering the gym, class or workouts. & # XD; What else would you like others to know about your experience and how will it help you prepare for your future career plans? KM: The experience opened my eyes to more college athletics opportunities than I ever thought possible. The opportunity to talk to high-class professionals and like-minded students motivated me to pursue a career in athletics. As for how this prepared me for my future plans, I was forced to take a deeper look at what skills were my strengths and skills that I needed to improve. During the forum, we split into professional consultations that allowed me to learn about my transfer skills from being a student-athlete and what I can take with me to work. In my career council, I was also able to create a development plan to identify what I needed to achieve to achieve my goals. Overall, I would never change this experience and wish it would last longer than the weekend. I would like to thank UTSA Athletics for allowing me to participate in such an amazing program and the NCAA for selecting me to participate. For all other athletes who are thinking of a career in college, this is definitely a lifetime opportunity. & # XD; -UTSA-
