TAAF/TRAPS SMS University presented by MUSCO



The Texas Amateur Athletic Federation and the Texas Recreation and Park Society work together to conduct the Sport Management School (SMS University).It includes a 1st Year, 2nd Year Sports Program and a Maintenance Program.

This annual school is a perfect, economical opportunity to improve your knowledge and abilities in the sports management arena. You will receive a crash-course on the hot topics of athletics, taught by "gurus" in the Parks and Recreation Field.

Upon completion of both years in the school, participants will become a TAAF Certified Professional Sports Manager (C.P.S.M.). Participants must recertify within four (4) years of the date certified to retain certification.

Participants in the TAAF/TRAPS SMS University may request to obtain .1 CEUs for each class attended, and must attend a minimum of five (5)classes in their entirety to receive credit. Attendees will receive a certificate of completion following the conclusion of the school. Students may attend sessions from any tract to earn credits toward their certification.



The T.A.A.F. State Office is working with the Education team on making sure SMS University will have an option to attend virtually. We will update this page as we put together more information.
