Rookie Day Rewind: Our Take on Take Your Child to Work Day

Last week, we had the great opportunity to invite several of our future Pros into our facility to celebrate Take Your Child to Work Day.

In true Pro Athlete fashion, we took the traditional aspects of Take Your Child to Work Day and renamed and reworked the day to fit the untraditional workplace and workspaces that we’re known for. Not only were they invited into our facility, they also got to team up with their parents to learn more about their job and what life is like working at Pro Athlete.

The “Rookies”, as we call them, learned all about the ordering, fulfillment and distribution processes of what it takes from the moment an order is placed on or until the order arrives at its final destination.

After a few hours learning about the systems and processes that keep our business up and running, the Rookies took to the Sport Court and rotated through several different stations of activities involving a wide variety of games and activities that their parents often participate in as a part of our wellness program.  

After time on the Sport Court, the Rookies spent some time in Studio ‘87 in a condensed version of our assisted stretching and yoga classes. The day came to a close with some time in the Ballpark Bistro enjoying a healthy lunch prepared by Chef Nathan paired with face-painting before the Rookies spent the remaining afternoon with their parents exploring Pro Athlete individually.

Year after year, it's rewarding to see all of the kiddos walk away with more and more knowledge about how we operate our business. One day, maybe they will be the ones running the show.
