Fieldhouse Media operates with a simple and singular philosophy: Educating your student-athletes on leveraging social media as a tool to better your program and their careers. Social Media has inaccurately been portrayed as the bad guy. When used properly, it can be the best PR an athletic program can have…and it’s free. Through our coaching, we assist your teams in creating a positive online identity, preserving the strong reputation of hard work and excellence that your school and team is founded on, monitoring and protecting the online image of your kids, and help them build towards the future.
Fieldhouse Media has been featured in: The New York Times, ESPN.com, USA Today, National Sports Journalism Institute, The Tulsa World, Journal Record, Campus Technology, The Daily O’Collegian, Edmond Outlook, along with various radio and TV appearances.
