"In the Arena" DECA Program

The Gladiators "In the Arena" DECA Program is designed to give area High School DECA Students an inside look at everything that happens behind-the-scenes within the Gwinnett Gladiators organization. The “In the Arena” program gives these students the hands on experience of putting on a real event.

Participating schools will choose a game night that will become theirs. Students in the DECA program will be charged with promoting the night within their school and community, selling tickets, planning game night activities, scheduling participants for different game night activities, and much more.

A Gladiators staff member will be assigned to each school that participates. This staff member presents his/her experiences in the business world, and assists the students in coming up with a plan for their night. The students will create a marketing plan that will include everything from what their price point should be to maximize the amount of money they make from the night, to what the intermission activities will be that night.

If you are interested in having your school's DECA Chapter participate in our "In the Arena" program, please contact the Gladiators Front Office at 770-497-5118.
