All Lees-McRae student-athletes are subject to the rules and regulations pertaining to the use of social media contained in the Athletic Department social media policy. Each student-athlete is encouraged to review the above policy to ensure they are not found in violation of said policy and therefore subject to sanction.

Members of the media planning to cover Bobcat athletics should contact the appropriate sports information contact for that given sport. Working space at the press box/scorer's table is limited, so please contact the appropriate staff member ahead of time. Internet access is available at all home basketball and volleyball events. Members of the media will be provided with game notes, programs, statistics, and any other relevant materials. Box scores will be available at certain intervals throughout the game, including play-by-play printouts if requested.

All requests for player and coach interviews must be made through the sports information staff. Players and coaches will be available following a 10-minute "cooling off" period after each home contest. Postgame interviews of visiting players and coaches will be available upon request.

All requests for radio and Internet broadcasts must be made through the sports information staff at least one week in advance.  Internet access is available for visiting broadcasts upon request at all home basketball and volleyball events.

All photographers interested in shooting at LMC home events must contact the sports information office at least one week in advance in order to arrange for the proper credentials. Working photographers are reminded that according to NCAA rules, flash photography is not permitted at indoor events.
