Students become “LBA Media Crew”

Picture this, all the games that happen, players, want the ‘LBA Media Crew’ to be at their games, taking pictures, filming, conducting interview & live stream the games, which all this cool content then goes on social media.

To make this possible, from this season LBA will be working with the schools in our leagues, as last season ‘LBA Media Crew’ were only at less than 10% of the games, yet the impact was awesome! We hope to at least double it to 20%.

Now the power is in the schools hands, as all they need to do is inform LBA which games they want the ‘LBA Media Crew’, and assign 2/3 students for a particular game, who will be apart of the Crew. LBA will attend with equipment, a team leader, that will guide, brief and inspire!

This is great as LBA have limited in resources and schools have young people that will get to be apart the basketball league, playing a very important role which the whole world can potentially witness. Plus they get guidance and support from an LBA pro and who knows, this really should be a positive life changing experience.
