Athletic Communications Office
The Stetson University Athletic Communications Office is located in the "Crow's Nest" of the Edmunds Center, accesible by an external staircase on the west side of the building.

Press/Photo Credentials
The Athletic Communications Office is ready to assist the working media in any way possible. We will gladly fulfill all reasonable requests. When requesting credentials for the the 2012-13 season, we urge you to do so at least 24 hours in advance. Media regularly assigned to cover Stetson and the visiting school will receive top priority.

NCAA policy establishes that only photographers on assignment will be afforded credentials. Designated areas for photographers have been marked on each baseline, all photographers must remain within the designated areas.

E-mail Service
Every press release that is released by Stetson Athletics is available via e-mail. To be added to a specific sport distribution list, please send an e-mail request to the appropriate contact person (see listings above), or sign-up on the Hatter Mail page.

Post-Event Interview Policy
Head coaches and requested players will be available for post-game interviews after a 10 minute "cooling off" period as prescribed by the NCAA.  Media may request specific Stetson student-athletes through the appropriate Athletic Communications contact.  See visiting Sports Information Director regarding interviews with members of their coaching staff or players.

In-Season Player Interviews
All player interviews must be scheduled through the Athletic Communications Office. In making interview requests, we ask for at least 24 hours notice. Advance notice on both items will help ensure that your request will be handled efficiently. Players may not be interviewed prior to the contest on a game day.

In-Season Coaches Interview Policy
In-person interviews with the head coach or staff can be arranged through the Athletic Communications Office.

Practice Coverage
Practice sessions are open to media coverage. Please notify the Athletic Communications Office, 24 hours in advance, if you are planning to attend a practice.
