About YSN

“My son has had the privilege of experiencing the YSN Sports Broadcasting Academy for a year! He has learned so much from the classes and the opportunities given through the program! What was promised from this class was given with even more than we had hoped! What a joy to have someone else invest in my son and his dreams!”

Julie Nikkel, Parent 

A unique extra-curricular activity, the YSN Sports Broadcasting Academy is a 2-hour weekly training over 13-weeks. While our program focuses on the foundations of sports broadcasting, students are also introduced to other career paths in the professional sports arena.

Students receive extensive professional development training giving them a significant edge over their peers. Exposure to these skill sets benefit our graduates regardless of their ultimate career choice. Students also begin to establish extremely valuable relationships and contacts within the highest levels of the sport broadcasting industry. Each week fellow classmates and a faculty member from all over the United States log into a live and interactive online classroom (video conference).

College admissions committees and departments consider myriad of factors in the admissions decision. One factor underestimated by many students (and parents) is the extra-curricular activities in which students participated while in high school.
