Oklahoma City, OK (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
Fieldhouse Media, the leading provider of social media education and monitoring services for student-athletes, has announced a new webinar offering directed at coaches and athletic staff.
"Over the last few months, a number of athletic departments have requested this type of service," said Kevin Deshazo, Founder of Fieldhouse Media. "Pull up any news website and you'll see a number of stories about the social media use of student-athletes. Coaches are having to deal with it on a daily basis. They can't do that effectively if they don't have a basic understanding of social media and the role it's playing in the world."
The webinars will cover a variety of areas, helping coaches to understand how and why their student-athletes are using social media, information on NCAA regulations and violations, how it can be used as a recruiting tool and what they can do to use it promote their team and school.
Created specifically for coaches, the webinars enable the staff to reinforce the practices that Fieldhouse Media introduces during their on-campus social media seminars for student-athletes.
"The goal is that they walk away better equipped to have conversations with their student-athletes, and hopefully with a desire to use it themselves. Many coaches have a negative perception of social media, based on their lack of understanding of it. That needs to change. We're simply responding to a need."
