To work with the Pros, you need to train with the Pros!  

  • Landing a career in professional sports can be tough, and not just for the athletes.

  • The positions in the front office can be as cut throat and competitve as the positions on the field. That's why you need to get your foot in the door by learning directly from those that have excelled in this industry.  


  • The training and resources we provide you will give you the competitive edge you need to score the position you've always wanted.

Take a look at this by the numbers...

  • If you’re anything like us, you’re always willing to invest in yourself. I know full well that whatever I spend in education and experience, I always gain a 10X return.  

  • It is very possible that you have spent anywhere from $40,000-$200,000 on collegiate courses with the goal of working in professional sports. It is also very possible that in this 1-Day conference you could better position yourself toward that goal.  


  • This is more than just an opportunity to network, it is an opportunity to learn more about yourself and grow in ways you’ve never experienced before. ALL ATTENDEES WILL HAVE THE CHANCE TO MEET ONE ON ONE WITH SIX PANELISTS DURING THE MENTORING HOUR.  

  • The cost for Sports Career Conference is only $150 for students and $250 for professionals during this early bird timeframe. There is a price increase after September 1st! The best part about it is we are only allowing 50 participants. You will get one on one time with panelists!  

Attendees should send an email to with a list of the 6 panelists that they would like to meet with one on one during the mentor hour. Steinberg Sports CEO Leigh Steinberg and Steinberg Sports President Chris Cabott will be available as mentor selections during that hour for attendees as well.
