ASAA Media Handbook

ASAA manages 28 state championship events involving over 8,000 student athletes in various locations throughout the state of Alaska. ASAA believes that these events create opportunities for student-athletes growth and at the same time developing school and community spirit and support. ASAA appreciates the interest generated by statewide Alaska media coverage and the publicity given to the achievements of our member schools and students. ASAA acknowledges the rights and responsibilities of bonafide media representatives to report on ASAA sponsored events. All ASAA media policies and procedures set forth have been developed with careful thought. ASAA would like to create a strong partnership with Alaska media for the promotion of high school athletics and activities.

The ASAA Media Handbook is all the information a media agency needs to have in order to cover any ASAA event throughout the school year. Please be sure to download this document for review and applications.

ASAA Media Credentials are intended to provide access to ASAA state championship events only. For regular season and conference/regional tournaments contests, it is at the discretion of the host school whether to honor a ASAA Media credential. ASAA will issue ASAA Media Credentials and Broadcasting approval, only after the media outlet has submitted their application with required information, and the ASAA office has approved it. ASAA Media Credentials are for the sole purpose of providing facility access in conjunction with the state championship event. Any unauthorized use of the ASAA Media Credential subjects the bearer to removal from the event facility and possible removal of media credential.

The agency and bearer accepting an ASAA media credential assumes all risk incident to, and hereby releases the ASAA from any and all liability arising in connection with, attending the event and creating and using Agency Materials. The agency agrees to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the ASAA from and against all liability, loss, damage or expense arising out of the issuance of this credential, the employee’s presence in the facility, or any other activity of the agency or employee in connection with the event (including without limitation, any claims that Agency Materials infringe the intellectual property rights, publicity rights, or any rights of any third party). In no event shall the ASAA be liable to the agency or employee for any incidental, special, indirect, punitive, or consequential damages arising out of or relating to this credential.
