Sample Reads for the Announcer


This is a collection of generic reads any Game Operations Manager, AD, SID, School Administrator or Public Address Announcer could use, modify and incorporate into the needed scripts to keep their patrons informed on the important information regarding their event, venue and organization.

These are only examples and should not be read without the review and consent of the organization’s adminstrative team.

A fully structured and modifiable Game Script can be found on the FORMS page.
