Sports As A Job

Hi my name is Kolby Castillo. Have you ever wondered what it would take and what it’s like following your passion? More specifically, have you ever wondered what it’s like working in sports? I graduated in May 2019 and am now working full-time as an Athletics Assistant Event Management and Intramural Coordinator at the University of Minnesota - Crookston. I was also a former college student-athlete. Through my experiences I have learned of the power of sport. My life is now dedicated to spreading opportunity through sport while working towards being a college athletic director. I have decided to document my journey and invite you to join me on it. Along the way you’ll learn about the excitement, slow days, ups, downs, and everything in between. You’ll get my insight on sport trends, learn about my daily struggle, and hear my advice. Join me on the journey...
