The Ocean City Nor'easters create a young, dynamic sports setting with a number of community events to participate in as well as working with the full-time staff. By being a part of our soccer franchise, you will be involved with the front office staff, promotions in the community, developing and implementing marketing strategies, game day operations and local charity work. This will involve working some evenings and weekends as is necessary in running a competitive soccer franchise in one of the largest leagues in North America.
The Ocean City Nor'easters are a minor league soccer franchise that will compete in its 22nd season in 2018, and have established itself as one of the top Premier Development League (PDL) teams in North America. The Nor'easters recruit players who have the ability to compete throughout the summer months in a professional setting while maintaining their collegiate eligibility. The Nor'easters is the proving ground for players that aspire to reach the highest levels of the game (more than 60 have moved on to play in the pros), while providing affordable family entertainment to the Ocean City community.
“Interning for the Nor'easters proved to be a dynamic and invaluable opportunity for me. The smaller size of the front office lends itself to collaboration with not just other interns but with the Owner, GM, Ocean City community, and even the players themselves. I was empowered by the organization to bring new ideas to the table each day. This internship directly contributed to my opportunity to work with other professional sports organizations and influenced my decision to pursue a graduate degree in Sports Industry Management.”
