We are looking for volunteers to help manage BLaxFive.NET
For over twenty years, the day-to-day operations of the SportsFive websites has been managed by just two dedicated people. It is time, now, to look for some help.
We would like to have one or two "Content Managers" help us during the regular twelve-week season and one who would help out during the off-season.
Our custom software is very easy to use and there are people willing to help new managers through the processes. Team coaches or their "team reporters" can have access to specific areas of the databases and some of the teams enter their own data. Some teams need to be reminded when scores and stats don't come in. In some cases, the Content Manager enter scores or stats that come in by email.
Content Managers should have a strong interest in promoting boy's scholastic lacrosse and willingness to promote all of the high school players in the area. It can be a rewarding experience.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
Team Reporters send in game day information like scores and stats. Information can be directly sent to our site through your phone or computer or can be sent by email or messaging.
Team Photographers send in pictures taken at games that are used in stories and sometimes in galleries on the web site.
General Photographers shoot images for more than one team. Their images are used in stories and often in galleries.
With the increased demand for social media interaction we are looking for a couple of volunteers to help spread the word through our social media accounts.
Content Creators produce stories about the teams or players. They may be in-season or out-of-season stories about, for example, NLI signings, college decisions, special accomplishments or other things of interest to our visitors.
On game days, many pieces of information are sent to us in many different formats. We work hard to get all of the information posted as soon as possible, but we benefit from a couple of people who can help enter stats and figure out what is missing and try to get it.
We provide many services and we don't charge our users for any of it. The costs are covered by advertising and donations but mostly by a group of dedicated volunteers who receive no paychecks. We are always looking for a couple of people who like to sell and are willing to help us find good fits for advertising and people willing to donate financially.
