4th Annual


Sports, Parks and Recreation Conference (SPARC)

The annual Sports, Parks and Recreation Conference creates a unique opportunity for industry professionals to connect, engage and mentor current ASU and high school students, volunteers, interns, and staff who already demonstrate a commitment to field of parks and recreation. 


During the SPARC experience, students learn from seasoned professionals and explore opportunities in their field of interest as well as areas they may be less familiar with. Through discovery, they learn the art of networking, time/resource management and the challenges they may face with real-world applications.
