Join our Sports Live team for fall sports

For fans who can't make it to every game, Sports Live works to provide up-to-the-minute, real-time information from games in progress around the region. But we can’t do it without a dedicated group of local sports fans who represent their favorite high school teams on the Sports Live Tweet Team.

This group of volunteer parents, students and coaches share updates about their respective teams throughout the year and make it possible for all fans to stay informed and keep track of the team's progress, even when they themselves aren't able to make it to the games. 

Fans can use their desktop, laptop, tablet or smart phone to get updated action and scores on games throughout the area. The updates make it easy for local high school sports fans to follow the action from just one team - or several all at once. 

Volunteers from any sport are invited to participate ~ even if it doesn’t lend itself to regular “scoring” updates. Each Sports Live school-based team has the opportunity to share overall results, photos, recognition and encouragement for its athletes.

New tweeters are currently being recruited for fall sports at high schools in both Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. And though it is a volunteer service, the Times News does cover the cost of admission, via either a pass or ticket reimbursement, to games covered by its Sports Live tweet team members.

And it doesn't require a personal Twitter account. Accounts are already in place for all area schools. All you need is a cell phone and access to Twitter or its app.

To learn more or join the Tweet Team at your favorite school, contact Carmen Musick at (423) 723-1435. Or email us at sportslive@timesnews.net.
