Behind-the-Scenes Graphics Preparation Training

  • Exercises in Compiling Stats and Player Info
  • Working with Templates and XL files
  • And much much more.

By the end of the week, you will be able to produce and star in your own Stetson Broadcast Productions sports video.

Then if you enjoyed this week you will have the opportunity to join our student game day crew for the 2017-2018 athletic season.

On-site housing and all meals are included in the cost of the camp. Campers are supervised and evening activities are planned and required.
