Supporter to Reporter

Supporter to Reporter provides young people aged between 11 and 18 years old with the opportunity to learn about sports journalism from the inside of a global professional organisation.

The Warrington Wolves Media Team immerse young people in the world of journalism through a series of interactive role plays, workshops and interviews with professional athletes.? Alongside opportunities to write newspaper articles, create vibrant content for matchday programmes, devise engaging social media content and learn about radio and TV production, youngsters will also be coached about how to maximise their chances of becoming a top journalist. Supporter to Reporter has been created with educationists to embed cross-curricular links throughout the programme, ensuring that pupils are given a competitive edge over other aspiring journalists.

Supporter to Reporter explores the components of an engaging human-interest story, how to present it informatively and in an entertaining format, how to capture essential background information and the reasons why accuracy and fairness still remain the cornerstones of reporting. Youngsters will have behind the scenes access to the Warrington Wolves players and coaching staff to learn the skills and techniques used within the media.
