NJSIAA will not be issuing press credentials for the fall 2020 season. All post-season events, with the exception of Cross Country, will be hosted by a member school; therefore, schools should follow their own press policy for any post-season event at their school. NJSIAA will coordinate broadcast and streaming of any post-season contests.
There are now 3 Types of Press Credentials available:
Full-Year Credentials – Organizations (newspapers/digital organizations) who are NJ Press Association members or members of the NJ Broadcasters Association. An editor or designated staff person may email one request on behalf of multiple staff members along with a signed Copy of Page 3 of the Press Credential Policy (“Terms and Conditions”).
Sports-Specific Credentials - Each individual staff member must submit application and requested documentation. Seasonal deadlines: October 1st (Fall), December 15th (Winter), March 15th (Spring). Accreditation approval is required only once per year.
Event-Specific Credentials - Each individual staff member must submit application and requested documentation. Request must be submitted no later than 72 hours prior to the event start time. Accreditation approval is required only once per year. Event specific credentials may not be available for certain events due to facility limitations or safety concerns.
IMPORTANT: The Accreditation application process for applicants seeking sports-specific or event specific credentials is detailed in the link below. Applicants must be a professional member of a bona fide media organization with a proven track record of reporting on NJ high school sports and/or NJSIAA member schools. Applicants must email email@example.com with all the required information outlined in the Accreditation Process and the Required Documentation sections, in addition to a signed copy of Page 3 of the Press Credential Policy (“Terms and Conditions”)
