 Job Description

Rafters interns receive a $1500 salary for the summer and are expected to maintain a very challenging schedule throughout the internship. Interns are expected to be at all home games as well as play key roles in executing special events taking place at Witter Field.  Days off are granted throughout the season to help alleviate the challenging schedule.
If a career in sports is what you desire, an internship with a sports team can be a great benefit.  Not only is it an important step professionally, but it’s also a great way to build relationships and network in a fun, fast paced and exciting environment.  Past interns have used their experience with the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters to go on to bigger and better things internally, with another team or in a desired field of interest.

  • Perform other facility and maintenance duties throughout the ballpark as needed
  • Act as official scorer during games in the press box
  • Ability to work long hours, including weekends, as business indicates
  • Other duties as assigned by GM
