Do you love sports? Do you have an interest in writing? If you can say “yes” to those questions, then joining our team at Upstate Courier Sports may be just right for you!

Our local team of top-flight talent in our sports department is not only dedicated, but they all live in the Capital Region, just like the majority of our readers.

If you join our team at Upstate Courier Sports, you will have the chance to sit side-by-side with professional sportswriters and cover the area’s top teams. Our bureau is the entire Capital Region, but we are always looking for new writers!

Some of our available beats include the Adirondack Thunder, both Union and RPI ice hockey and the St. Rose basketball team. When in season, we also cover the Tri-City ValleyCats, the UAlbany football team and the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League. Additionally, even though our beats for Siena and UAlbany basketball are currently full, there are chances to serve as a fill-in at games, as well as the opportunity to be a part of our in-depth coverage of the MAAC Tournament each March.

Finally, high school sports are a big part of our site, so if you’d prefer, you can cover your own school’s teams and have the chance to cover other schools during the regular season and during sectionals, all the way from Class AA to Class D.

If any of this interests you, contact sports editor Aidan Joly by email (joly@upstatecourier.com) or message him on social media (his Twitter username is @ByAidanJoly). We can’t wait for you to join our team!
