Arizona State University's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication has a unique fall break opportunity for teens interested in sports journalism. Middle and high school students are invited to learn the basics of sports broadcasting and play-by-play reporting at a two-day camp Oct. 10–11. The camp is offered in partnership with FOX Sports Arizona and the Arizona Coyotes.

Middle school students will spend both days at the Cronkite School’s state-of-the-art facility, learning from Cronkite faculty. They’ll also have the opportunity to hear from legendary sportscaster Dick Stockton in a conversation moderated by Cronkite School professor Mark Reda, who has more than 35 years' experience in sports broadcasting.

High school students will spend the first day of the camp at Gila River Arena. There, they’ll meet FOX Sports Arizona and Arizona Coyotes on-air talent, watch the team practice, learn the basics of play-by-play, practice calling a game, and perform on-location standups. On day two, they’ll visit the Cronkite School for activities including play-by-play critiques and storytelling instruction.

Each camp is limited to 20 participants, and the cost is $300 for middle school students and $350 for high school students. The fee includes all materials as well as a light breakfast, full lunch and snacks for both days. Don’t let your kid spend fall break bored. Register now
