Digital Daily sports website www.northoaklandsports.com, operated by the Stickradt Media Group and AdaVan Media Group, and serving several northern suburbs of the Detroit Metropolitan area, including Auburn Hills, Clarkston, Lake Orion, Holly, Ortonville, Oxford, Rochester, Rochester Hills, Troy and surrounding townships, was founded in December, 2009, to help fill a void vacated by former print media that have ceased publication. The site covers hundreds of teams, including high school varsity, youth, club, recreational, amateur sports, minor league teams, sports medicine, facilities, road races, golf courses, tournaments of all sorts, and a host of other sports-related entities.

The staff is welcoming high school student participants who wish to contribute information to the site. For students who are considering going into the media profession, either as a sports journalist, photo journalist, public relations director, or sports marketing, etc., this could be a fine opportunity to gain some pre-college experience or have another publication to publish items during college.

Although this is an unpaid opportunity, high school students who are already involved in their school newspaper or yearbook, or simply have an interest in sports media, are welcome to give this a shot. Students can attend varsity athletics games and contests at their respective schools, keep notes and stats, interview head coaches from both teams, and submit stories and photos within a predetermined deadline. Student sports columns are also welcome.

We can supply recommendation letters to colleges upon request for students who wish to participate.

The site has garnered over 2 million total hits and over 2.2 million page views in its first 24 months. The site is also in also planning on adding video in 2010-11, and is in negotiation with some video companies, who would also use student trainees for game coverage.
