It's a chance to learn new skills, showcase your fellow athletes, and share the amazing stories of Special Olympics BC with the public. Learn how to write reports and help show the action of sport. Learn about how to best use social media, share stories online, take pictures and videos, and conduct interviews by creating and asking questions. Help to raise awareness about Special Olympics!

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 Andrea Boyes and SOBC Marketing & Communications Manager Megan Pollock.
