Friday, December 1 & Friday, April 6

The Washington Wizards Sports Career Day consists of an educational sports business seminar hosted by members of the Wizards management team, a college fair featuring as many as 50 schools from around the country, and a Wizards basketball game. Students will hear from executives representing several different departments within Monumental Sports & Entertainment. The speakers will cover the basic responsibilities of their department as well as offer insight and advice for students interested in becoming sports business professionals. The event is open to all interested students, teachers, administrators, and chaperones, but we especially encourage members of organizations like DECA, FBLA, FCCLA, and Business Professionals of America to participate.

“Our DECA Chapter Members always look forward to this event! The workshop speakers provide great information on career preparation, internship ideas, and target marketing. The College Fair gives the students a chance to speak with representatives about their schools. And the Wizards game is always exciting! This is a highlight of our social events!” – Dee Strauss (King George High School)

As many as 3,000 students and chaperones attend this event each year, making this the largest group event of the Wizards season and one of the largest educational outreach events in the region!
