Memphis Grizzlies: The Sport & Leisure Commerce program is pleased to announce an agreement with the Memphis Grizzlies to sponsor the unit's Sport Sales Training Program. As a curriculum elective, the Sport Sales Training Program, a two semester experience, provides selected graduate and undergraduate students with authentic sales training and experience with a major professional sport franchise. Students are engaged in Grizzlies business operations working directly with seasoned sales management mentors assigned by the Vice President of Sales and Service. The course is taught by Dr. Richard Irwin.

Memphis Grizzlies and Memphis City Schools: The Memphis Grizzlies, Memphis City Schools, and the University of Memphis Physical Education Teacher Education (PETE) program collaborate to deliver and to evaluate the �Get Fit with the Grizzlies� elementary school initiative. This health-infused mini-curriculum is delivered to 4th and 5th graders by their Physical Education teachers across Memphis which helps these students to comprehend how important their health is to how they feel and how they achieve academically. The Memphis Grizzlies and their sponsors support this program because it is a WIN-WIN partnership with the schools to help motivate children to be fit, just like Grizz! Students who participate at a high level can qualify for incentive prizes and a special day at the FedExForum in where they can work-out with the Grizzlies players as well as learn more about how to exercise and eat right.
