BRIDGERS TO PARTICIPATE IN NCAA CAREER IN SPORTS FORUM
ECSU Lady Viking One of Three Hundred Student-Athletes Chosen
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.- Elizabeth City State University’s Ya’Shonti Bridgers has been selected to participate in the 2013 NCAA Career in Sports Forum (CSF) June 8-11, as released by the NCAA Office last week.
From the over 700 applications from all NCAA Division I, II and III institutions, Bridgers is one of 300 student-athletes selected for the four-day event. She is the fifth ECSU student-athlete (Christen Pelton, Heather Smith, Teddy Warren, C.J. Wright) to be chosen as a participant for the Career in Sports Forum.
A native of Windsor, NC, Bridgers, just completed her junior season as a member of the ECSU Lady Viking basketball team. She averaged around 10 minutes per contest for the Lady Vikings who captured the CIAA Northern Division crown this past season. An accounting major at ECSU, she was recently recognized at the Athletic Award Ceremony as a member of the academic honor roll posting a GPA of 3.166.
The CSF's objectives for the student-athletes in attendance include: 1. how their personal values intersect with career opportunities; 2. understand how behavioral styles impact individual effectiveness; 3. develop actionable plans for personal growth and development; 4. learn a realistic view of the roles of coach or administrator in collegiate athletics or conference offices, as well as, within sports law and the sports entertainment industry; 5. examine the viability of selecting coaching, athletics administration, sports law, sports media and entertainment, and/or officiating as a full-time or part-time career; and 6. network with key decision makers from member institutions, sports law, sports media and entertainment, and the NCAA.
