First of all, what is In The Game High School Sports Magazine®?
In The Game High School Sports Magazine® is a branded publication that specializes in local high school sports. We currently produce an edition for each of five areas: South Georgia, Columbus Valley, Middle Georgia, Cobb·Cherokee Counties, and Southeast Georgia. Those editions concentrate on the high school athletic programs within their respective coverage areas. A map of the coverage areas is here.
How much does it cost a school to participate?
Nothing. : )
How does a school get involved?
If a school is within one of our coverage areas and wants to be involved, all they have to do is let us know. We take care of the arrangement and artistic presentation. Guidelines for submission are here.
What other information is in the magazines?
In addition to school content, every issue has four main feature articles:
Player Spotlight recognizes an outstanding athlete within each coverage area. This student excels in their sport and desires to go to the next level after high school.
Academic Athlete features an area student who successfully participates in an athletic program and maintains a very high grade point average.
Rising Star is dedicated to recognizing an incredible up-and-coming athlete that is not in high school yet but will make an impact at that level.
Coach’s Corner shines the spotlight on an exceptional coach within the respective coverage area. He or she makes a tremendous difference in his or her program.
There are other features as well, and they vary with each issue and area. Some examples are 1 on One, On the Flip Side, and our newest features, Freshman Focus and Sophomore Standout. As space permits, we also include other informative articles on a wide variety of subjects relevant to high school athletics.
How is an individual selected for a feature?
The athletes featured in our magazines are selected by each area publisher. We encourage and accept nominations from coaches, schools, parents, athletes and our readers. If you would like to nominate someone, please do so here.
Does an athlete have to pay anything to be featured in your magazine?
Absolutely not. And we give him or her extra copies of the magazine to share with friends and family.
How many issues are there a year?
Each edition (area) publishes 11 issues a year, during the months of August through June. We do not print any issues in July.
How is inthegamemagazine.com different from In The Game High School Sports Magazine®?
Currently, our website archives the monthly feature articles for each magazine on their own special part of our website. The content may vary for each area, just like in the magazines. We also have an online photo gallery that anyone may contribute to. From time to time, we may have web-only content or photography.
I’ve seen other magazines that look similar to In The Game. Do you produce other high school sports magazines too?
No. Our magazines are all titled In The Game High School Sports Magazine® with each area edition name noted in the upper right corner. The business model we use and the features we have were created by us. Unfortunately there are some unscrupulous people in this world, so if you see an imitation or a knock-off, we'd like to know about it.
I’m looking for an article that was in your magazine. Is it on the website?
If it was a feature, yes. Go to the appropriate area (under the Locations tab or Publications link) and use the search box if you don't see what you are looking for. As of March 2009, the features will only be archived by area. Articles submitted by schools are online also, archived by area. If you have a problem finding something, just let us know. We’ll point you in the right direction.
What is the +Add This button for?
The +Add This button is an easy way for our visitors to share an archived article with the rest of the world. Just click on the button and you can email, bookmark or share the page on your social networking site, like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc. There is also an +Add This button at the bottom of our main homepage.
