Sports Presentation Volunteer

Loughborough Sport has put together a bespoke Sport Presentation Training Program and would like to give all Loughborough Students the opportunity to access. The Sport Presentation training program has been written to give students the opportunity to train and learn the skills required to be an MC, a presenter, an announcer, lighting engineer, sound engineer, show caller, producer, sports presentation assistant; and most importantly – how all of these people work together to deliver a first class show.

Sport Presentation is about communicating a brand, an idea and a story. It creates unforgettable moments and highlights the theatre, excitement and anticipation around a sporting event. Sport Presentation was designed, and still exists, to enhance the experience of fans and athletes; to elevate the spectacle that is the main event. Sport Presentation is more than just the MC! Core elements of Sports presentation include – music; video boards; MCs; announcers; vision, audio and lighting; sponsor activations; special effects; sport protocols; and cultural nuance will always be the backbone of a professional package.

A Workshop has been arranged with Alan March Sport Ltd, who have been involved with Sports Presentation at some of the World’s premier sporting events: Olympic & Paralympic Games, Commonwealth Games, FINA Diving World Series, Handball World Championships and Invictus Games to name a few.

The workshop will be of two parts:

  • Part 1 – Introduction to Sports Presentation – Friday 6th February – Either 1.00 – 5.00pm or 6 – 10pm
  • Part 2 – Practical Session (incorporating Loughborough Lightning match) – Monday 9th February – 4pm – 10pm (Some flexibility available for those with lectures until 6pm)
