Our Sports Internship has been available to all Space Coast Education Center students and graduates since 1995. Initially, our graduates were given the opportunity to work with athletes and trainers affiliated with the Florida Marlins. Space Coast Education Center has also had the privilege to work with the Washington Nationals during spring training, giving students the opportunity to experience the world of sports injuries as well as the indications and contraindications of massage therapy.

Most recently, Space Coast Education Center students and graduates will have the opportunity to work with Florida Tech athletes. Until now, our sports internship primarily focused on male professional baseball athletes. This will give our students and graduates the opportunity to work with both male and female athletes in a wide variety of sports.

Admission requirements are to be enrolled in or graduated from a Basic Massage and Hydrotherapy program. Program dates and times are announced throughout the year according to the sport.

 

Break times will be determined by the administration.
