United Sports Academy Fills Roles with New Staff

October 26, 2022

NORTH SIOUX CITY, SD – The United Sports Academy has hired Karlie McCoy as the Director of Sponsor Relations and Lindsey Smith as the Marketing and Events Coordinator. These are two great additions to our organization and we are excited to welcome them to our team!

In her new role, McCoy will work with local Siouxland businesses to bring sponsorships to the United Sports Academy building through signage, tournament naming rights and more. These sponsorships help our youth sport programs to continue their non-profit mission of providing opportunities to develop through sports and compete at a higher level while off-setting costs.

Karlie McCoy grew up in Hinton where she was a successful multi-sport athlete. Following her graduation, she attended the University of South Dakota where she earned her Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Accounting.

In 2017, she moved to Nashville and worked as an Account Relations Manager and Customer Lighting Designer for Nashville Event Lighting for three years. Here, she worked closely with celebrities to create unique and custom lighting for weddings, CMA pop-up shops, album release parties and everything in between. In 2019, Karlie and her husband, Jared, welcomed their first son and moved back to the Siouxland area so they could raise their children closer to their families. Here, she worked at Sterling for 2.5 years as an DoD Account Manager where she managed the IT needs of multiple purple agencies. Outside of work, Karlie keeps busy chasing her two boys, Vander (3) and Dutch (1).

"I have always had a passion for sports and grew up first-hand seeing the benefits sporting programs and amazing coaches can have on a child's life. I am so excited to join the United Sports Academy team and continue to help spread the word on the mission here while bringing new sponsorships to the facility," states Karlie McCoy.

If you would like to promote your brand while supporting our United Sports Academy mission, please email Karlie at kmccoy@usportsacad.com for sponsorship opportunities.

The United Sports Academy is located in the CNOS Fieldhouse – 300 Centennial Drive, Suite 170, North Sioux City, SD.
