What is your editorial policy? What are your submission guidelines?
There are just a few guidelines to keep in mind. One major fact is unless it is an extraordinary situation, we do NOT allow the use of unnamed sources.  If an unnamed source is required, the story must be cleared by our editor prior to submission. Much of our work is subjective, as we encourage our writers to put themselves in their articles; however when hard reporting is called for, that's what we give you: sources should be named, and multiple sources will be required in the rare case where they are not. Click here for on our submission guidelines!

Do you have a Amateur Sports store?
Yes and the store is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Okay, I must admit... I'm not a big sports fan, what can Amateur Sports Magazine (News Network) do for me?
We recognize that our name states 'sports' and this may not be your thing... but there's hope. Do you like kids? Well, our site and publication focuses on kids in a positive, upbeat manner. Simply put we provide a non-bias media venue to showcase student-athletes achievements on, as well as off the field of play. So, we are not entirely about sports, but about kids participating in sports.
