The staff of the Tulane University Athletic Communications Office will be available throughout the 2009 volleyball season to accommodate any media requests. Following are some guidelines that should make it easier for media members to cover the Green Wave volleyball team. Any additional questions should be directed to Richie Weaver, Assistant Director of Athletic Communications.
Credentials for all Tulane games are for working media only. Spouses, dates, children or other non-workers are not permitted in the working media areas. Requests for media credentials should be made in writing on appropriate letterhead at least 48 hours prior to the game. Requests should be directed to Richie Weaver, Assistant Director of Athletic Communications. Requests from the media covering visiting teams will be confirmed with that team's media relations director. Credentials can be picked up at the main ticket booth at Fogelman Arena.
Only photographers on assignment and members of the television media will be given photo credentials. Accredited photographers are allowed on the court in designated areas.
The Tulane Athletic Communications staff will be at your service throughout the match. All media will be provided with game programs, rosters, media guides, game notes and other pertinent information. Computer-generated statistics will be available at the conclusion of each game. Information provided includes play-by-play and individual and team statistics in standard NCAA box score format.
Long distance telephone lines will be available at press row. These phones require collect calls or a credit card for billing. Any special requests should be made at least two weeks prior to the game.
Post Game Interviews
Head coach Sinisa Momic and requested players will be available to the media after each game following a customary 15-minute cooling down period. The Tulane locker room will not be open to the media. Each visiting team will set its own post-game policy.
All Tulane players and coaches will be available throughout the 2009 season for interviews with members of the news media. It is important, however, that all requests for interviews be made through the Tulane Athletic Communications Office at (504) 314-7232. This policy allows us to arrange a time that will not interfere with a student-athlete's academic schedule, which has top priority. No student-athlete's home phone number will be released to ensure the player's privacy away from the court.
Calling Coach Momic
The best way to reach head coach Sinisa Momic is through the Athletic Communications Office at (504) 314-7232.
