RSC Update - Term 1, Week 3
The Regional Sport Coordinators wish to quickly clarify our guidelines for submitting content for the RSC Update.
Our "Submit Content" page features two options for sporting organisations and physical activity providers - "submit article" and "submit event".
Submit Event should be used to share details of competitions or events that will be offered statewide (for example, as one statewide event, events held in each region, or a combination of both).
Submit Article should be used for region-specific events (e.g. Southern Schools Gala Day) and information about school and community programs and competitions.
Following this process will help us to manage our calendar effectively, and allow subscribers to filter and view information that's relevant to them.
Please contact the Regional Sport Coordinators if you wish to clarify what content option is applicable to your opportunity.
