Sports Publicists

Education and Training Requirements

High School

Sports publicists are the voice of the athlete or team they represent, so being an effective communicator is essential. Take classes in English and journalism to hone writing skills, and take speech classes to learn how to compose ideas and thoughts and convey them to an audience. Also take other college preparatory classes, such as math, science, and foreign language. Since sports publicists deal with the public, a general knowledge of history, sociology, psychology, and current events will be especially important.
