How to Get Your Sports Team Featured on Patch
Here are several ways you can make sure your sports teams are highlighted on Cleveland Heights Patch.
Fall sports have started and Cleveland Heights Patch wants to help you share every exciting moment with the community.
We are looking for athletes, coaches, parents, booster club members and fans who are ready, willing and able to share their team spirit on Patch. News about any team—high school, middle school, rec teams, etc.—is welcome.
We've already had a few people submit great articles. Daniel Russell, varsity field hockey coach at Cleveland Heights High School, shared photos and a brief summary of the field hockey teams' trip to Oberlin College, where they learned skills and what it's like to play at the collegiate level from student athletes there.
And John Lentz, proud father of Heights High grad Meg Lentz, shared recaps from the girls' lacrosse team's amazing season last spring.
First, make sure you've signed up with Patch. And here's how you can share news about your sports team:
1. Start a blog about your sports team: Share stats, recaps, photos and/or videos from the game in your own sports blog. Discuss the team, coaches and players with other fans in the community. We're looking for folks from all Cleveland Heights schools — CH-UH, Beaumont, Communion of Saints, Lutheran East, just to name a few.
2. Upload pictures and video of your team to our Pics and Clips gallery: At the game? Did you snap an awesome photo while you were there? Catch the winning moment on video? Upload it to our community photo gallery.
3. Place events, such as fundraisers, special competitions, etc., on the calendar: Want to get more fans in the stands? Hoping to fund new uniforms? Let everyone know where and when your next game or fundraiser is taking place by posting it on our free event calendar. This is also a great place to let the community know the where and when of any other special team events. Add a photo; share the excitement.
