CLARK – Middle school and high school students have the unique opportunity to learn about the world of sports broadcasting when Clark Recreation conducts their second annual Sports Broadcasting Camp from June 25-29 at the Clark Recreation Center on Westfield Avenue in Clark.
The Clark Recreation Sports Broadcasting Camp is open to all students, male or female, ages 11-and-older. Over the course of the camp week, students gain insight into areas such as play-by-play, sports talk show hosting, TV anchoring techniques, game preparation, writing and interviewing skills, professional presentation, and more. Special guest lecturers that include several big-name area broadcasters, on-camera activities, and hands-on instruction, are all a part of the daily schedule. Practice assignments lead up to the two main projects: hosting a five minute sportscast and calling play-by-play of a Somerset Patriots minor league baseball game. Campers will also receive a DVD at the end of the week featuring all of their on-camera work.
Prominent national and local sports personalities visit the camp including: Matt Loughlin (WFAN), Kenny Albert (FOX/ESPN Radio), Frank DeGraci (YES Network), former Seton Hall women’s basketball coach Phyllis Mangina, Doug Doyle (WBGO), Dave Popkin (NEC/WABC/ESPN Regional/MSG Varsity), Adam Amin (Somerset Patriots/ESPN), and many others.
The camp is instructed by Craig D’Amico and Danny Breslauer. D’Amico is an elementary school substitute teacher in the Clark district and has served as an on air talent with Pack Network and the Northeast Conference since 2008. Breslauer is currently the play-by-play voice of R-Vision, the online television network of Rutgers University Athletics. He also freelances for Verizon FiOS1 Sports and the Northeast Conference as an on-air and voice over talent.
Registration space is limited to the first 20 students. For more information on the Clark Recreation Sports Broadcasting Camp, contact Ralph Bernardo at 1-732-388-3600 ext. 3009 or at RBernardo@ourclark.com.
