Neighbors wants winter sports news
It’s getting cold outside and the snow will be flying before you know it. That’s the bad news. But here’s the good news: It’s winter sports season.
Your young athletes have already started practicing and games will be starting before the end of this month. It promises to be a great season filled with game-winning shots, wrestling tournaments, strikes and spares, balance beam routines and swim meets.
Neighbors wants to be there every step of the way. If you’re a winter sports coach or the parent of an athlete, we need you help. In order to get teams and players the recognition they deserve, we want to showcase them in our pages. We can only do that if you commit to sending us game reports and photos each week. If you send it, it will get in.
You can email us at email@example.com. You don’t have to be a writer — just send us the information and we’ll put it all together. When emailing pictures, send them as JPEG files as large as possible. Provide caption information and where people are located from left to right, front row to back.
The sports news we’re looking for ranges from varsity high school teams down to middle school and even elementary and recreational leagues. And not just basketball — we want wrestling, bowling, swimming, gymnastics and hockey, too. We look forward to hearing from you and celebrating this season’s successes.
