FHSAA offers PA Announcer clinic in South Florida

The Florida High School Athletic Association has partnered with the National Association of Sports Public Address Announcers to provide a football P.A. announcers' clinic on August 20 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. The clinic will be conducted at Barry University.

Football public address announcers and those who want to learn more about announcing football, including students, may attend this summer's clinic. The registration fee is $65 for adults and $35 for students.

Rokeach will share his experience with clinic attendees to help them become better P.A. announcers. Topics covered at the clinic include: the important role of the P.A. announcer; emergency situations; scriptwriting; game announcements, including pre- and post-game; P.A. announcing do's and don'ts; how P.A. announcers and football officials can better work together; and NASPAA and FHSAA P.A. announcing expectations.

The clinician is Jay Rokeach, football P.A. announcer for the University of Miami Hurricanes.
