Write For Us

Use the power of your words to create engaging content for our audience of adult athletes.

Our Readers

Our readers are adults of all ages–from 22 to 92 (give or take). They are current athletes of all skill levels, childhood athletes returning to sports, and beginner athletes.

Our Guidelines

We welcome content that will interest our readers and not be  purely self-promotional. Our tone is casual but informational. Content that has poor grammar, is obviously AI-generated, or that is off topic will not be considered.

Topics

Our readers turn to us for content on beginner sports tips, training tips for elite athletes, emerging sports trends and technology, inspiring stories about other adult athletes, and so much more.

We welcome topics like the aforementioned and are also open to other topic ideas that pertain to adult sports.

If you are a coach or trainer with expert advice for our readers, we especially welcome your content.

You’ll get an author bio, and if you have your own website/blog, you can include a backlink to your site. You can also include one backlink within your content, provided it sounds natural and is relevant to the content. All backlinks will be do follow links.

If you have a listing in our directory, we will include your content directly in your listing in addition to the blog.
