ENRICH-0750 – Sports In-Person: Ritchie Center Tour (ENRICH-0750_RITC)

The Ritchie Center: Sports Like You’ve Never Seen Before

One of Denver’s best sports venues is rolling out its red (well, DU crimson!) carpet just for you. Yes, you’ve likely seen on TV or even in-person, the prowess of the University of Denver student athletes: the hockey stars, the basketball players, the gymnasts, the volleyballers, the swimmers, the soccer players and all the rest. But now you can visit the place they call home, the Daniel L. Ritchie Center for Sports & Wellness, for a behind-the-scenes informational tour. Join the DU athletics staff as they offer stops at the tech services control room, the sports performance venue, the athletic training room, a locker room and more. Every stop features a brief tutorial on the impact each area makes on the athletes, fans and stakeholders. Then comes the fun part, playing key roles in the center. Be a sports announcer as you read a game day script over the public address system, unveil a sponsor promotion, and control the in-game camera to catch all the heart-racing action that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. Plus, get briefed on media training from the communications team and then give a media interview. The tour wraps up with a question-and-answer session. Suit up—it’s time to see game day like you’ve never seen it before!
