Kylie Flickinger

Sports Services Manager

Kylie Flickinger has loved and been involved in sports for as long as she can remember. She enjoys a variety of sporting activities, whether it be through participation or spectatorship. Her first real love of a sport was softball. Softball quickly taught her how essential sports are to a community and how influential sports can be to an individual. She finds great reward and value in being part of a team that works hard everyday in order to accomplish a common goal. While in high school, Kylie had the wonderful opportunity to compete in the Ohio High School State Softball and Golf Tournaments. Accomplishing a championship as a team is still one of her favorite memories. She believes that the lessons learned while playing on those teams are ideals and practices that apply to everyday life.

Kylie continued her education at The Ohio State University, OH-! While at OSU, she played on the Club Softball team, interned with Ohio High School Athletic Association, The Ohio Machine, Columbus Blue Jackets, and The Ohio State University Varsity Softball team. She graduated in May 2016 with a major in Sport Industry. She was determined to work with sports and people that believe in the power of sports just as much as she does. Kylie feels that her role as Sports Services Manager at  JOSC is the perfect place to be for that!
