Equipment/Steve Cady Arena
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 interesting journey.
