The world of Athletic Equipment Management is one that is very rarely seen or
understood by many. Individuals outside of the world of athletics don't fully know or
understand the day to day operations of an athletic equipment department. The
Miami equipment department makes it possible for its student-athletes and coaches
to compete at the highest level on a daily basis. The Miami equipment staff handles
all athletic equipment, safety of equipment, apparel and logistics of each athletic
team and coaching staff on campus. The only time an equipment staff is noticed is
when it's responsibilities are left undone. We are the team behind the team!
The experience gained while being an important part of a division one athletic
program is unforgettable. Having the opportunity to fly all over the country and
being involved in big game atmospheres is something we do on a weekly basis. The
hours are long and the work can sometimes be grueling and thankless, but it is all
worth it when you sit down and look back at the experiences gained through hard
work and dedication. Having the ability to have a front row, fully interactive ticket to
some of the best college sports in the country, is something that is unforgettable!
The Miami Equipment Staff will provide an opportunity to meet new people not
just at Miami but at other universities across the country. Through hard work and
dedication, the knowledge and experiences gained will stay with you for a lifetime.
The opportunities ahead could help shape your future in athletics, and begin a very
