Reporting to the Intercollegiate Events Coordinator, the Intercollegiate Event Staff – Announcer will be responsible for announcing game scripts at intercollegiate events (men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, hockey, soccer, and/or football) for an audience at Varsity Arena, Varsity Stadium or Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport at the University of Toronto.
In addition, the incumbent will have the opportunity to announce at OUA provincial and U SPORTS national championships. Announcers are live in-stadium and deliver opening protocol, starters, activations, player of the game, etc. This role is not a play-by-play commentator role, rather the voice of the Varsity Blues in the venue to a public audience.
Announcers are to demonstrate commentating clearly and succinctly with ease and knowledge of the game. Announcers are to demonstrate professionalism: arrive prior to the start of the event, complete a sound check, review the script, work in a team environment, be adaptable to the changes that occur during a live sporting event, and respect all staff and the University of Toronto community.
