Sport Management Barbeque

We are excited to announce that in honor of the program's 15th year, Spring Alumni Weekend at York College will include a very special time for Sport Management Alumni!

The inaugural Sport Management Barbeque will be held on Saturday, May 3, from 12:30-2:30 pm, in the Grantley Hall courtyard.

The barbeque will feature delicious food, a casual atmosphere for alumni, faculty, students and friends of the program to connect and reconnect, fun games and the opportunity to tour some of the new facilities on campus, such as Diehl Hall, home of the Sport Management Program.

Plus, the barbeque is scheduled in the middle of YCP's Spring Alumni Weekend, so you can enjoy all of the festivities including the YCP Block Party, the Downtown Crawl, various athletic teams' alumni contests, an art exhibit and much more!

The cost for the barbeque is $15 per adult/$5 per child (ages 2-10). A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Sport Management Student Association.

We hope to see you on May 3! Register today!
