Interning with the Worcester Sharks.


Name: Matthew Flynn

Hometown: Falmouth, MA

Major: Accounting

Minor: Sports Management

Internship Sponsor: The Worcester Sharks (AHL)


As a Community Development and Operations Intern, my primary responsibilities are to:

  •  Propose and develop community events
  • Assist the Operations Department with scouts and players
  • Update donation offerings on Excel
  • Work at Worcester Sharks games

Blog Entry:

The Worcester Sharks are a hockey organization that is affiliated with the American Hockey League; they are located in the DCU Center in downtown Worcester. Every employee, from hockey player to office worker, works as a team member to create a fun and enjoyable environment at every game. Our goal is to create a positive impact on our patrons – the Worcester community.


I’m responsible for events, such as “Reading is Cool” and Sharks Street Bridge” that get youth involved with education and sports. I also work with the local community on donations and coordinating events to spread the Worcester Sharks’ name.


I enjoy being involved with the process of the Worcester Sharks giving back to the community. As I go around the community with players and the Sharks’ mascot to give away donations to upcoming games, I’ve learned that it’s a group effort. The Sharks’ entire staff is dedicated to creating excellence.
