THE SPORTS BROADCASTING CAMP
The Nation's Premier Sports Broadcasting Camp! NOW VIRTUAL

The Sports Broadcasting Camp is the longest running sportscasting camp in the country, established in 2002. In the summer of 2020, the world forced us to go virtual and the new camp was met by overwhelming response by campers and parents. We are happy to now offer monthly online sports broadcasting seminars for students all of all ages. These online sessions will take place on Saturday and Sunday for four hours each day. Over the last 19 years we have hosted a “who’s who” of leading national and local sportscasters as our teachers, team captains, and guest speakers (list below). Our programs are a perfect mix of actually recording sports broadcast projects and learning the tricks of the trade from sportscast industry leaders.

Campers learn the importance of research, preparation techniques, and team pre-production meetings. Our students gain immeasurable confidence and develop tremendous relationships with their teams and teachers. Hundreds of our campers have gone on to broadcast in college and professionally.

Some projects students may produce include:

  • Sportstalk radio shows

  • FOX-type big event pre-game shows with a panel

  • Play-by-Play and Color Commentary of games

  • Writing and delivering a nightly sportscast on-camera using TelePrompter

  • TV Interviews in one-on-one and press conference settings

  • On-camera show opens

  • And more….

Longtime Camp Director Dave Popkin serves as the Master of Ceremonies, conducting

interviews and leading many lessons. Popkin has called games on over a dozen national TV and radio national networks. He is entering his 18 th year on the Seton Hall Basketball radio team, is the Voice of Northeast Conference hoops on CBS Sports Network, calls baseball for Buffalo Bisons Triple A games on ESPN 1520 and BIG EAST games on FS1, and announces both NEC Football and CIT basketball on ESPN3. He has also been an adjunct professor at Seton Hall University. Brooklyn Nets WFAN radio color commentator Tim Capstraw is also a camp fixture. He has significant TV experience on NBA TV, YES, MSG, CBS Sports Network, and more. Capstraw is a former Division I player and head coach in both basketball and baseball. Our weekend seminars will provide Q and A sessions with leading sportscasters from national networks and major league and major Division I college teams.
