Patch 101: Making Way for Fall Sports

Here's a quick list of how you can make sure your sports teams are highlighted on Dallas-Hiram Patch.

Patch 101: Making Way for Fall Sports

If you are a part of a fall sports team, Dallas-Hiram Patch wants to hear from you. Whether you're a player, a member of the booster club, a coach or even a vendor, Patch is a place for you. 

We are not just a news portal, but more of a community hub for you, your family and your friends. But, we can't do it without your support.

Here's how you and your sports team can get the most out of Dallas-Hiram Patch:

1. Start a blog about your sports team.

Here you can talk about your highs and lows, players that stand out, coaches you love and more, including what's going on in the sports world outside of Paulding County. Blogs are not subject to the same content editing as articles. For the most part, it's your style, your way, your say.

2. Upload pictures of your team to our gallery.

We wish we could, but cannot, be at every game for every team. So, we love getting photos and videos sent to us, especially those posted by you—the community—to our gallery. It's a place where everyone can quickly see images and films you all hold near and dear.

3. Submit opinion articles or letters to the editor.

We accept submissions, which may appear as featured stories on our homepage and in our newsletters. We reach tons of people in the community, and we know they'd love to hear from you. Email these to jon.gargis@patch.com.

4. Make announcements on wins, team changes, highlights and more.

Announcements can be about anything you want to tell people. We want you to feel invested in Patch and the community, and this is an easy and quick way to do it. Add a photo, as well. It helps your announcement to stand out.

5. Place events, such as fundraisers, special competitions, etc., on our calendar.

We know you have lots of games or events that you'd love to see the community come to, and the more people who know about it, the better. That's where event listings come in. You pick the date it runs, and viola! The best way to then get that event featured on the front page of our Patch site is to include a photo!

6. Place an advertisement for even more exposure for your team or business.

If you want to gain even more exposure, place an advertisement on Patch. Contact at allison.bentley@patch.com for more information.
