IN THE GAME High School Sports Magazine® is a growing family of monthly high school athletic magazines. Following the school calendar months of August through June for publication, our magazines focus on local high school athletes and athletic programs within each market area.
Every issue of IN THE GAME is a high quality, glossy, full-color publication featuring positive sports stories with a human interest slant. There are four regular monthly features in each issue: Player Spotlight, Academic Athlete, Coach’s Corner and Rising Star. In addition, each magazine allows area schools up to two full pages for their journalism departments to publish their sports articles and photography. We include other sports information pertinent to the individual market areas as well.
The positive response to IN THE GAME has been overwhelming, and many schools report that parental and community interest has risen as a result of their participation with our publication. High school sports are an integral part of many people’s lives on a year-round basis. Nationwide, more than 7 million students participated in organized high school sports during the 2008-2009 school year* and that number has increased annually for the past 20 years. More than half of all students enrolled in high school participate in athletics!
