Re: 2013 Tournament Public Address Scripts

Enclosed are the public address announcement scripts to be read by your

announcer for the MHSAA tournament games at your site.

If you are hosting a meet in your own facility, please remember, this is a

tournament – not a home meet – and you should plan to have your announcer conduct him or herself accordingly.

In the interest of good sportsmanship, please follow the script when doing introductions. Your announcer shall be a neutral party; should not show any favoritism to any team, even if one of the participants is from the host school; or perform in such a manner that is designed to evoke a response from the crowd (i.e. -- “Are You Ready!” or “Let’s Rumble!” etc.).

Please find enclosed a copy of an article from the MHSAA publication MENTOR, which describes the desirable attributes and behavior for public address announcers.

2012-13 Team Dual Wrestling Tournament Public Address Announcer Copy – Team Dual Wrestling Good _____________________________. The Michigan High School Athletic (Morning, Afternoon, Evening) Association welcomes you to ______________________________ for today’s (Name of school) ____________________ competition in the Two-Thousand-Thirteen Division ____ (District or Regional) Team Dual Wrestling Tournament.

While everything seems to change in sports – sportsmanship doesn’t. It’s always about respecting the game and everyone around you. Be a good sport today.

Ladies and gentlemen, at this time we ask that you stand. The privilege of this game was made possible by those who have fought – and continue to fight for – the freedoms we enjoy. Let us honor and respect their efforts and our country by gentlemen removing their caps, and everyone standing at attention, placing their hands over their hearts, as we proudly sing our National Anthem.

Heard, But Not Seen – The Public Address Announcer At many athletic contests, there are a number of behind-the-scenes elements which contribute to the atmosphere for the event. One of these elements is a person infrequently seen, but always heard -the public address announcer.

Sometimes, the job at our local schools is given last-minute attention, in terms of selecting the person for the job or preparing that person for the responsibility. Other schools have, like in coaching, a veteran in that position who provides stability and professionalism.

Selecting your announcer is as important as selecting someone to keep statistics, tape ankles, run the clock, etc. The person you select should have some public speaking experience, knowledge of the game to be announced, the ability to follow instructions and the wisdom to know when to speak, and more importantly, when not to speak and how to speak.

It doesn't matter if you're announcing a game at a field or a gymnasium where you have 170 people, or an arena with 17,000 fans looking on. This unseen voice is important.

One thing I personally find distasteful at high school athletic events is the announcer who literally tries to entertain from behind the microphone. No knock on those who do public address work for professional athletic teams, where entertainment is the goal, but remember that this is an educational event that is taking place in a classroom. Spectators will work themselves up on their own. They don't need a public address announcer to do it for them.

With that tone set, here are some tidbits I have found useful in selecting public address

announcers and some guidelines for them to follow when working games:

On Selecting Announcers

• Voice quality - Select a person with voice qualities that projects at a pitch where all can understand what is being said. This is generally someone with a low-pitched voice. A person with a high-pitched voice is often harder to understand. The latter person may be well intentioned and mechanically sound, but if you don't have the pipes, you don't have the pipes -- regardless of gender (I've heard many, many more male than female announcers at the college and high school level with this problem).

• Game knowledge - A good public address announcer should know the game to be announced. This includes knowing official's signals, and the appropriate times to be on the microphone (i.e., being silent once a free throw shooter in basketball has the ball and is ready to shoot).

• Emotionally neutral - Yes, you want a person who can be enthusiastic, but you do not want a "homer." Your public address announcer should handle all calls with equal vigor and delivery, even if the opponent just made the game-winning score.

• Follows directions - The best public address announcers work from scripts. You need someone who can deliver the announcements you want, when you want them.

Working The Game

• Be familiar with the teams - Most public address announcers develop spotting charts to use while announcing. These charts provide the basic information in a larger type format than a game program generally does.

Also, get a rundown on proper pronunciations before the game starts. Either arrive at the game 30 to 45 minutes early so you can talk with the coach or administrator from the visiting school to get pronunciations right, or call the visiting school a day or two before the game to review difficult names.

There's nothing more embarrassing for a youngster, parents and friends, for an announcer to butcher a name or be inconsistent in announcing it during a contest.

-2 Consider a spotter - This is needed primarily in football. A spotter is one who assists the public address announcer in identifying the key operatives on each play.

• Develop a script - Rather than doing everything off the top of your head each time, scripts can be developed for player introductions, welcomes, sportsmanship messages, announcements about upcoming events at the school, messages thanking people for attending the game, etc. (Scripts are also available from the MHSAA for certain announcements.) Writing a script and rehearsing it several times before working the game will make each announcement sound smooth and professional.

It is important to note that announcements welcoming the visiting team to the event and promoting good sportsmanship are vital at high school athletic events. They set the proper tone for the game.

• Keep the focus on the game - As stated above, the public address announcer should be enthusiastic, but emotionally neutral. When you talk too much, you draw attention away from the purpose of the event.
