Students become “LBA Media Crew”

 

The LBA Media Crew have been doing a great job taking pictures, video, conducting interviews & live streaming Westminster College League games – content which is then posted on our social media pages. This year, we are looking to take this coverage to another level!

To make this possible, from this season LBA will be looking to work with the schools in our leagues. Last season, the LBA Media Crew were only at 10% of games, yet the impact was awesome! This year we hope to at least double it to 20%.

Now, the power is in the schools’ hands. Each school will have the option to nominate 2/3 students to work alongside LBA staff to  cover their games – via Instagram, Snapchat and still photography. All you need to do is let us know which of your games you would like to nominate students for. LBA will then attend with equipment and a team leader, who will brief, guide and inspire!

This is a great opportunity, as LBA have finite resources, and schools have young people that will get the chance to be a part of the basketball league, playing a very important role which the whole world can witness. They will also receive guidance and support from an LBA pro, and who knows, this really could be a life changing experience.
