Sport Management Association

The NCC Sport Management Association (SMA) is a student run organization at North Central College that promotes understanding of and professional development in the highly competitive sports industry. SMA is for students who want to strengthen their marketability in the job market or who are just looking for a group of people who share their passion for sports. SMA was founded in 2007 to serve those students with a career interest in the sports industry. Sports management is the second most popular major among all students at North Central College.

SMA meetings are held 2-4 times per term. SMA members go to Career Fairs and off-campus athletic events. SMA members volunteer at charitable events such as Relay for Life and the Special Olympics. SMA also invites local sports executives and administrators to share their experiences and lend advice about working in the sports industry.
