Young athletes sought for new Spotlight feature

Do you know or have a young athlete who should be in the spotlight?

Maybe they play for rep or house league teams, compete individually or participate in school sports.

I’m looking for athletes to join me – Jeff Gard – on the Total Sports Northumberland podcast for a new feature called Athlete Spotlight. The local athlete will have the opportunity to talk about their sports background and also ask a couple of questions to one of my featured guests – a professional athlete or other sports personality. 

I’ve been fortunate to speak with many great athletes who have competed at the highest levels of their sport and I want to give local athletes the chance to do the same.

Athletes should be comfortable with speaking. Interviews are conducted via Zoom video or by phone, depending on the guest’s availability.

From the interview, I’ll also write a story about the local athlete for the Total Sports Northumberland website and magazine.

A photo, preferably sports-related, of the athlete will be required.

Please use the form at or e-mail with the following info: Name and age of athlete and the town they reside in; parent’s contact information; athlete’s sports background (organizations, teams, sports, any accomplishments); and athlete’s favourite amateur and professional sports, teams, athletes and personalities (ex. TV broadcaster).

If you’re not the parent submitting a name for consideration, please include your name and e-mail address as well.
