About The School Level I

The NIRSA School of Collegiate Recreation provides a broad range of material designed to enhance a new professional’s management and problem-solving skills.

Experienced recreational sports faculty members have developed the course curriculum, designed the program schedule, and will lead sessions that provide participants with opportunities to practice, discuss, and refine the professional skills necessary for success.

Who should attend The School Level I?

The Level I experience is designed for recreation professionals with one-to-five years of full-time work experience. The full-time experience does not need to be in recreational sports. Those who have more experience in the field may attend, but must understand that the sessions are geared to their less-experienced colleagues.

Attendance at all sessions is required. Please note that a considerable amount of group work takes place outside of this schedule and typically occurs in the evenings after sessions have ended.
