Amateur Sports News Network (ASNN) addresses the needs and interests of amateur student-athletes, their parents, organizations / institutions involved, as well as coaches.

 As you may know, sports have become a way of life for those families involved, and the family aspect is emphasized, along with such wholesome values as sportsmanship, teamwork, pride, responsibility, and respect for others. Writers interested in contributing to our magazine must be well-versed in the subject matter, as the readers are intelligent, and know their sport!  All articles should be composed in such a way as to not sound like something that has been said many times before. A well-detailed story, full of supporting facts, figures, and anecdotes, makes for a better feature. Articles can run from one to four pages in the magazine, depending on topic, depth, and scope. The addition of excellent photographs with a feature greatly increases its potential for publication. Click here to review additional guidelines submissions.
