Yes, please send us your press releases, game results, athlete and team profiles!
All content (text and photos) for HamiltonScores comes from the contributions of coaches, managers, athletic directors, volunteers, parents, all of whom are encouraged to provide details about their sport event – final score, players involved, the significance of the event, etc. If we seem bias toward a specific organization or athletic group, it’s because they send us regular contributions.
Submissions are generally edited before posted, keeping in mind that the original authors are not professional journalists. We always credit you or your organization as the source.
Unless we have a reason to hold it, we often review, edit and post any submission to the site quickly once we’ve received it; day or night and often during the weekend. We won’t notify you when it is posted unless you specifically ask. We will contact you if we have questions or need more detail.
There are high profile amateur sports events in Hamilton that we don’t cover. Simply, if no one from the organization has told us about it, we can’t cover it. We do not have reporters, we depend completely on your contributions. We do not lift stories from other media organizations in the city.
If you find a story that is inaccurate or that has been reproduced without permission, please contact us. We’ll let you know where it came from and work with you to include your credit and/or remove it immediately.
Photos and Videos
High quality digital photos or videos (including links to YouTube or other online services) are very welcome. You must own the copyright (i.e. you took the picture) or have permission to use any photos or video submitted. Please include a brief description of any photos and let us know who to credit.
If you find a picture we’ve used without permission, please contact us. We’ll let you know where it came from and work with you to include your credit and/or remove it immediately.
If you are attaching documents or photos, please note the total attachment size should be less than 15MB. (Our server will reject anything larger, and you will receive it back telling you our mailbox is full.)
If you have photos on a Facebook page or other web site we can use, just send us the link.
League Tryouts and Advertisements
We often receive and post information about league tryouts in the community. If you submit a tryout schedule, please make it clear which league or local non-profit sports organization you are representing. We generally discard any submissions that resemble a for-profit advertisement.
If you wish to advertise on our site, please contact us for our media package.

We do this because we’re proud of Hamilton and its athletes; it is our contribution back to our community!
