SOBC Virtual Athlete Reporter Training (Session 1 of 2)

As part of our 2020-21 series of virtual Athlete Leadership programs, SOBC will offer the two-part Virtual Athlete Reporter Training on December 5 and 12 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. PT! (Athletes must participate in both sessions to complete the course.)

This course helps athletes build skills in storytelling, technology, and social media. It was created by SOBC – Victoria’s PR Coordinator Andrea Boyes and Public Speaking Organizer Tess van Straaten, both coaches and volunteers who are also experienced journalists. 

This course is a great fit for athletes who like to use their smartphones and understand social media!

This Athlete Reporter course will be delivered on Zoom by Boyes and SOBC Communications Manager Megan Pollock. 

To register, please email alps@specialolympics.bc.ca by December 3 at noon. Please submit your name, Local, and what kind of mobile device you use (i.e. smartphone or tablet). 

Stay tuned for more details to come about virtual Athlete Leadership courses in the new year!
