Making a School Sports Newsletter
“This just in… Valley Middle School blows out Central in an epic rivalry basketball match. Lucy Lipperton scores a new record 25 points.”
Everyone loves to hear the news about the school sports teams and it’s really important to spread the word about athletes that are winning medals and 1st place trophies. Creating a School Sports Newsletter is something fun and really helpful to make sports improve at your school. Here’s how to make one:
Extra! Extra! Read All About It
Introduce your first newsletter. Give it a name and paste your school mascot on the name somewhere so kids can Identify it easily. Make sure to let everyone know that it is a weekly and comes out every Monday so they know when to look for it. Another cool way to let everyone know a new newsletter is out is by always changing the color of the paper.
Time to start writing. Make sure to cover all sports. You don’t want to leave anyone left out or they might feel bad. Write about stuff like what the score of the game was, when is the next game, who is the best player, what awards they have won. Here's a quicklist of some cool things to write about...
- What teams are holding tryouts
- Player interviews and biographies
- Game Previews and Results
- Cartoons and Jokes
Stats in Sports
If you can find out the stats of the games, your newsletter will boom with popularity. There’s nothing more fun than to see a cool graphic of the standings, the scoreboard, how many points someone scored. It’s also very fun to keep track of records like most points in a game, highest scores, and winning percentages etc. etc.
A Picture Tells 1000 Words
Make sure to take some pictures… everyone loves to look at pictures. If you are always busy writing, get a friend to take pictures at the games. If you don’t have time to go to the game, you can always set-up a picture with one of the players. What great experience for someone that wants to become a professional photographer.
Paper is on the way out and everyone is now online. If you know how to make websites, or post blogs, you can get your sports newsletter online. It would be really cool to pass the link every week to subscribers through online networks like facebook and twitter. Easy!!!
