Statisticians and sports analysts play a key role in helping organizations reach their highest potential. Many events within the field are currently geared towards industry members and the dissemination of information between these industry partners.
This event creates an avenue for students to gain the proper knowledge and experience, and to help them transition into industry in this growing field. We aim to give participants the vision, skills and inspiration to involve themselves further in statistics and sports analytics. Through a hackathon, participants will have a chance to work on a project with supplied data sets, mentors and a live audience.
