Have a story that needs to be shared? We want to help you tell it.
It only takes 5 minutes…

Let's get started

How does this work?

Step 1

People, just like you, send us a story or news tip on a local athlete/coach/team.

Step 2

The BVM Sports team will review your submission.

Step 3

Once approved, your post will be published and available online under the local tab for others to see.

Step 4

Share your article with family, friends, teammates, coaches, etc.

Who can submit a story?

Anyone 12 and older can do this.

What if I don’t know the whole story?

Send us the information you do have as a news tip and our professional writers can fill in the gaps.

Do I need permission from the subject of my story to submit it to you?

No, but give credit where it’s due for any photos or videos that aren’t your own.

I’m not a very good writer, can you help?

Yes. Just tell us – in your own words – the who, what, when, where and why of your story and we’ll take it from there.

What stories do we publish?

Sports stories! We’re interested in all types, but we most often receive spotlights and event stories about local athletes, coaches and teams.

What’s a spotlight story?

Spotlights tend to profile the subject (athlete/coach/team) in a way that helps the reader get to know them better. These aren’t necessarily time sensitive and vary in length.

What’s an event story?

Event stories detail what occured during a game, meet, match, tournament, etc. They notify the reader of a competition that took place: who was in it, what they accomplished and provide a final result. These types of stories tend to be shorter.
