Future Journalist Programs for Students

The Chicago Wolves offer two programs for aspiring journalists: the Future Journalist Media Day and the Writing Chance program.

Future Journalist Media Day

FutureJournalistProgramsThe Chicago Wolves hosted their seventh annual Future Journalists Media Day for high school students during a team practice in December at the Triphahn Community Center and Ice Arena in Hoffman Estates.

Established journalists from the Chicago area discussed their experiences making a career in sports journalism and answered questions from students. Past guest speakers for the event have included CBS-2 Chicago sports anchor and WGN Radio host Jill Carlson, Chicago Tribune reporter Paul LaTour and ESPN 100 Radio host Harry Teinowitz.

In addition to the Q&A with the speakers, the students had the chance to watch practice and interview Wolves coaches and players.

Check back in the fall for more information about upcoming events.

Writing Chance

The Writing Chance program is a unique media-reporting opportunity for promising student writers and photographers. The Wolves invite local high school and college journalists and photographers to experience a game as a member of the media.

The students' skills are expanded as they are granted full media credentials and the assistance of the Wolves media relations department to write and photograph a game for their school newspaper. Students are able to watch the game from the press box and have the opportunity to take part in a postgame interview with Wolves head coach Scott Arniel.

All stories will be posted on the Chicago Wolves website. For more information about the program, please email Becky Jarosch at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
