ON6: Kat Vosters, Wisconsin Men’s Basketball

Welcome to episode six of Ops Nation, the flagship podcast for AthleticOps.com. In this episode of Ops Nation, we’re talking to the former Director of Operations for University of Wisconsin Men’s Basketball. Former is the key word here, as Kat Vosters is in such great demand, that she was actually plucked out of that position shortly before she agreed to come on Ops Nation as a guest. Kat is now in a newly created position, the Director of Student Athlete Recruitment.

In this episode Kat talks about growing up in the shadow of the university as a local girl, the attributes of a good Ops person, the “blue collar” nature of the position, how she knew she always wanted to be in a Ops position, and her new position.

Some of Kat’s duties as Director of Operations:

  • manage daily calendar for coach, staff, and players
  • travel
  • lodging
  • buses and planes
  • budget
  • practice time on the road
  • academic liaison

  • “Get a good reminder app!”
